About This Appeal

It starts with your gift...

Over the next few months we will see thousands of Kiwis in desperate need. Increased costs of living are further stretching families who already have so little, meaning they don’t have the luxury of participating in festivities like gift giving and shared meals this year.

But beyond the few days of celebration, Kiwi whānau continue to struggle. The effects of financial insecurity, homelessness and isolation are still prevalent after the Christmas tree is packed away and people return to the normality of everyday life.

That is why transformation starts with your gift.

Joy, with a gift under the tree or food support for a family will relieve stretched budgets and put a genuine smile on mum and dad’s faces.

Peace, with a Positive Lifestyle Programme will help people strengthen their mana and manage their emotions, so that they can feel an inner peace to handle any situation.

Hope, with Financial Mentoring sessions will give Kiwis in need the hope that next Christmas they can provide for their own families without going into debt.

You can make the difference for them now and beyond with your gift of hope. Your gift with meaning will provide so much more to those who receive it.

Please, choose your Gift of Hope and give as generously as possible, in the spirit of the season and in true kindness. The connection to the people you are helping is closer than you think.

It starts with your gift, a gift that will begin a journey of transformation.

Please help Kiwis in need by supporting this Christmas Appeal.
