THE incredible nature of the regional communities again shone through after tragedy, with donations streaming in for those affected by the bushfires.
Locals and businesses alike have donated money, time, food and resources.
Farmers Across Borders president Sam Starcevich has had an overwhelming response to the callout for help.
"Nutrien Ag Solutions has donated $20,000 for fuel, BP has donated $5000, RioTinto donated 2000 bales of hay and Matic Transport are going to bring them all down from Newman,'' Ms Starcevich said.
"Then just with the general public we've had so much raised it's unbelievable."
By the end of last week they had raised more than $45,000 to cover costs.
"That's going to well and truly cover this transport and then we can take more up there as it's needed which is really good," she said.
The donated hay bales are from RioTinto's Marandoo and Nammuldi projects and are being transported by Matic Transport.
"The recent bushfires have had a devastating impact on some of our regional communities and when Farmers Across Borders put out a call for hay bale donations, our team looked at ways we could help," said Rio Tinto general manager communities and social performance Ainslie Bourne.
"We hope this donation can help support the recovery and rebuilding efforts of the local community."
From the Esperance region, Ms Starcevich said she had donations of barley, straw, oats and hay which went to Corrigin on Saturday.
Currently the convoy will consist of about 12 to 15 trucks and the donations will be stockpiled in Corrigin for the time being, with Narrogin already having enough from local donations alone.
"We are working with RioTinto and Matic Transport to bring the stuff down from up north," she said.
"There are 1000 bales there waiting to bring down, the depots for them are Narrogin, Wickepin and then Bridgetown and Denmark depending on what they need."
Three Springs Sporting Club is one of the many local communities which has donated, offering 150 tonnes of hay from its club's crop to Farmers Across Borders.
Originally a crop planted for club funds, the committee decided to donate it as one of their members had experienced fire damage in Brookton and locals from the area had helped him, so the club decided to return the favour.
"It shows people what clubs can do if they want to," said club president Adrian Stokes.
"You have to work together, there are probably many guys down south that are bowlers, so if we can help some of those guys, who knows what's likely to happen down the track.
"There may be fires up here where the same thing is going to happen and we will need a hand up here."
Carnamah local, committee member and attendee to the sports club for the past eight years, Lesley Isbister said rallying behind other communities was what you do.
"My wife and I have been in the area for a little while, we've had droughts and we had people from the south bring up seed and grain up for us and visa-versa," Mr Isbister said.
"People in other areas have had bad years and we've given them grain to start again or to be able to grow a crop."
Although Farmers Across Borders has received large responses before, it's never come in so quickly.
"Being fire it's more visual and in your face - we always do get support when we are doing our drought runs and for floods, people support it, but the response has been quicker this time," Ms Starcevich said.
"We appreciate all the support we get, it's raising awareness as well because the drought is like that little hidden thing that people don't see specially up in the northern regions and especially not on the east coast, it doesn't get publicised as much.
"The money we have raised is going to well and truly cover this convoy and then we can take more up there as it's needed, which is really good."
