The Team from New Zealand Red Cross

Fun fact… it’s 537 steps up Baldwin Street in Dunedin – that means you’d have to walk up it almost 19 times to get 10,000 steps! Thanks to Hannah, our legendary Community Fundraising Coordinator for stepping up to the challenge.

We still have plenty of New Zealand Red Cross Cups to give away. All you need to do is sign up to Red Cross Journey, be one of the first 100 participants to raise $100 and we’ll send you a KeepCup!

Red Cross Journey is our annual fundraising step challenge - with a difference. Walk 10,000 steps a day for 21 days and learn about the journey of someone involved with Red Cross while raising funds to help people in need.

For more information or to make a donation, visit: www.redcrossjourney.org.nz...

Thank you for your support.

AMI, sharing community kindness!

AMI Insurance - Head office

When a stranger’s beagle went missing in thick bush near Wellington, 39-year-old Whanganui carver Zane Hair volunteered to spend more than a week searching in cold and stormy weather, accompanied by his beloved 14-year-old bulldog Zeke.

After nine days, Benny the beagle was found alive and Zane formed a lasting friendship with Benny’s owner, Matt Newman-Hall. “What Zane did is incredible … I find it really amazing that someone was willing to go that far for a complete stranger,” he says.
