CAN YOU SPARE A MEAL - raising money to end Homelessness

The team from Splice

Splice have gone out to the restaurants of the neighbourhood this month asking if they can "spare a meal" to be auctioned over Trade Me, with all money raised going to the Lifewise Big Sleepout 2017.

Splice have gone out to the restaurants of the neighbourhood this month asking if they can "spare a meal" to be auctioned over Trade Me, with all money raised going to the Lifewise Big Sleepout 2017.
We put it to them that feeding the homeless was one option but feeding those prepared to bid at auction, to dine in their fine establishments was another.

Now it's our turn. If you like great food in a nice restaurant and you are concerned about those neighbours for whom “home” has little permanence, warmth or safety – dive on into the auctions and make your contribution to the solution.
Click on the link to Trade Me below to see all of the auctions.
The restaurants have all given a specific dollar value to their vouchers but Splice ask that you consider matching their generosity and going a little further adding a little more on top in your bidding.

community + business + neighbours = a better neighbourhood for all

Here's a list of all the generous establishments taking part:
MONSOON POON
CAFÉ HANOI
MARVEL GRILL
The HIPGROUP - Amano, Ortolana, Milse
GEMMAYZE ST
CARMEN JONES
CITIZEN Q
SAIGON
The LANTERN ALLEY
MADAME GEORGE
THE CAKER

Hi peps,

I've noticed that during the evenings the noise levels seem to be staggeringly loud, at peak sleeping hours between 11pm and 4am. There are helicopters, cleaning vehicles, aeroplanes, construction noises from trucks. Has anyone else noticed these noise levels? Would anyone be willing to sign a petition to bring a blanket ban to these noise levels over the residential areas in Auckland?

Hi Neighbours. My name is Jeremy, I’m a KiwiSaver adviser and an Auckland Central local.

You may have read things in the media recently about hundreds of thousands of Kiwis not making the most of their KiwiSaver accounts.

For most people, getting advice is simply a job they intend to do but never get round to. Today is the day to stop procrastinating!

I offer a 30 min free advice session for anyone wanting to learn how to make the most of their KiwiSaver savings. If you attend you will get a one year membership to the Generate Frequent Values Reward Program, and valuable information that could help make your retirement a much better experience.
