Over the last 6 years, we have given our continued support to a number of charities and causes we believe to be very important. Charity support is a huge part of our business and we’re so proud to be able to make a difference in our community.
Every year we donate to the Fostering Kids Family fun day. It’s an incredible event where a number of deserving families of children that are vulnerable or from less fortunate backgrounds get a day of food, activities, and entertainment that is provided to them free of cost through donations like ours. The children and families have been selected with the aid and support of numerous organisations, agencies, and schools in the community that work directly with the families.
We also donate yearly to the Annual Kids Party and Autism New Zealand Inc. Autism NZ works directly with individuals and families who have a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder. They provide training and seminars as well as information education resources and they are often the voice for the families working as an advocate dealing with government and local organisations.
Another event that we love to support is the Heart Kids Day Out Variety Show. This show has given families in local communities throughout New Zealand an opportunity to see some of our fantastic local and international entertainers providing a performance that makes lasting memories for the children attending. Heart Kids New Zealand is a great organisation that supports hundreds of families in New Zealand that face challenges of having a child born with a heart defect or disease and is a charity we will continue to support.
We have also been lucky enough to donate towards the World Festival of Magic by hosts Lions Club of Wellington. The show is the greatest family magic show in New Zealand that has been touring since 1987.
A similar event we have enjoyed donating to is the New Zealand Circus Quirkus Show, hosted in Wellington by the Mt Victoria Rotary. A show where complimentary tickets are distributed to organisations focusing on support to less fortunate or special needs children and their families to allow them to have a great day out with the family.
We are so excited to be a proud sponsor for the NZME Special Children’s Christmas Party. The children invited are children who suffer from life-threatening illness, physical and intellectual impairment, domestic violence or living in underprivileged circumstances and the goal of the organisers, Sky, NZME and Manuka Doctor is to put smiles on these children’s faces for at least one day this year. We think it’s a great cause and we are excited to hear the feedback from the next Wellington Region party.
