We Say/You Say: How will you be supporting businesses this summer?

Abby Irwin Reporter from Western Leader

Kia ora neighbours,

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced a $37 million recovery fund for Auckland businesses this morning, which will include 100,000 free vouchers to visit Auckland Council facilities, attractions, and venues.

The goal is to encourage Aucklanders to "rediscover the best of local businesses and visitor attractions" by visiting places like the zoo and museums, or attend summer events organised by community and cultural groups.

What business or attraction would you spend your voucher on this summer? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the conversations section of the Western Leader.

Keep your toilet paper stocked AND help NZ's wildlife :)

Bianka Atlas from BirdCare Aotearoa

Do good AND never worry about toilet paper shortages!

When you order your toilet paper through My Fundraiser, BirdCare Aotearoa receives 10% of the full purchase price – that’s $5 for every box sold.

Each box costs just $50 and contains 48 rolls of quality 2-ply, 400-sheet, sustainably sourced loo paper (that's equivalent to 96 standard rolls) – delivered right to your door.

The cartons and rolls are plastic-free, purchases are tax deductible, and there is free shipping (small shipping fee applies for rural addresses).

Please select BirdCare Aotearoa as the ‘Good Cause’ when you make your purchase – and know that you are helping sick, injured and orphaned birds receive the veterinary care and attention they need.

To order your toilet paper now, visit: shop.myfundraiser.co.nz...

If you have a good supply of toilet paper (consider yourself lucky!) but would still like to support BirdCare Aotearoa, you can donate via our website:

*Please note: My Fundraiser is currently only delivering to Northland, Auckland, and as far south as the Waikato and Bay of Plenty. If anyone outside of these areas would like to support BirdCare Aotearoa, please donate through our website: birdcareaotearoa.org.nz...
