We live in unusual times. It all gets a bit much some days. So we're bringing you a much-needed dose of positivity to remind you that there's inspiration, kindness and quirkiness out there too.
You can check out today's edition of The Antidote - which features a cute puppy, the UK's longest-married couple, and Stewart Island's "savage" New Year's Eve here. If you'd like the Antidote delivered direct to your inbox, sign up here.
Ben sleeps on a mouldy mattress on the floor. 1 in 10 Kiwi kids in our poorest communities don’t have their own bed, which puts them at risk from life-threatening illnesses like rheumatic fever.
During winter, a bed is a sanctuary from the cold – and diseases that come with it. A bed for Ben, and tamariki like him, would mean a warm and good night's sleep so they can stay healthy and concentrate at school.
With your support, we aim to provide 1,100 children with beds and warm bedding. Donate today to provide beds and bedding for Kiwi kids.
