What is PKUP 4?

Every week we pick up for a selected charity.  

-

As of June 2018, PKUP will be donating a portion of our weekly earnings to a selected charity. Each week one of our customers will select what charity the money will go towards. 

How it works

1

Every Friday we select a PKUP trip and donate the fare.

2

The customer chooses an accredited charity.

Aaron wanted to make a difference to our farmers who are struggling as the drought deepens. After learning and becoming aware about the devastating difficulty that our farmers are facing we couldn’t help but choose Aaron to take part in our donation campaign. 
-
So this weekend Aaron chose to PKUP 4 Rural Aid.
-
We donated 2x Aarons fare to Rural Aid’s program www.buyabale.com.au to support our farmers. The program helps rural communities and Aussie farmers to purchase hay, water groceries, diesel to carry hay and much more. We encourage everyone to spread the word to anyone you may know that would want to help. 

Week 6 - 3rd August

We are very please to announce ACT Rescue & Foster (ARF) as the choice of this week’s donation.

-

This charity was chosen by Kez and Mike as it meant a lot to them as they would have never met their beloved four legged friends if it wasn’t for ARF. ❤️

-

ARF rescue dogs in Canberra and the surrounding region from euthanasia and foster them temporarily in their own homes. They do this for as long as it takes them to find them loving and permanent homes.

-

We donated 2x Kez and Mike’s fare to ARF and hope this will help our 4 legged friends.
