Robert McBride of Tolarno Station, Menindee, said when Melissa Portingale rang him and starting speaking about an Ooshie he had no idea what she was talking about.
But after hearing her story Mr McBride said he was committed to doing what he could to help.
Victorian farmers, Melissa Portingale and Stephen Black recently cut up a rare Simba Ooshie toy on live TV to make a stand against the online abuse they had received after attempting to sell the Lion King toy for irrigation water.
When Melissa and Stephen realised they had a 'one of a kind' Lion King Woolworths Ooshie they advertised it for sale in exchange for much-needed water. However, after relentless abuse, Stephen destroyed the valuable Ooshie LIVE on air in protest of online trolls. #9Todaypic.twitter.com/jVFkZ4XyTT— The Today Show (@TheTodayShow) August 1, 2019
"If I wasn't as mentally strong, I might not have been able to cope with the messages coming through," Ms Portingale said.
"We wanted to make people realise that a life is worth more than a toy."
It was a stand that Mr McBride said he fully supported.
"They went to sell an Ooshie to get some money to pay for water to farm their land and they got death threats," Mr McBride said.
"The message Stephen and Melissa are trying to send to the people in the city is that little piece of plastic is a tip of an iceberg.
"If another a thousand people in the city are aware of what's happening in the country, the corruption killing our river system and livelihoods, that's a good thing."
After destroying the Ooshie publicly, Ms Portingale said they wanted to create something positive from the experience.
They melted the parts of the Ooshie down with acetone and remade it into a winged broken heart that can be put back together again.
They then decided to donate the re-created Ooshie to a mental health organisation like Beyond Blue, enlisting Tolarno Station and their 21,000 social media followers to help.
"I contacted Robert and he was fantastic, he said he would love to accept it and he would auction it off to the highest bidder with the proceeds donated to a mental health organisation," Ms Portingale said.
Mr McBride said a date for the auction has not yet been set but the details would be posted to their social media pages.
