What awesome things do your kids do to help others?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Meet Eddie Writes. He's 7, and won a Wellingtonian of the Year award for philanthropy. He spends his spare time tie-dying t-shirts and ironing patches on bags to sell online - raising $10,000 for Wellington Regional Hospital. We bet there's lots of Eddies out there. Tell us about your kids' kind deeds in the comments.

Louise Askin - Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara Committee

Community Engagement Advisor from Greater Wellington

Kia ora koutou, I’m Louise from Makara Beach, and a co-chair of the Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara Committee tasked with making recommendations to Greater Wellington Regional Council on the future of our coastal and freshwater quality, and how our water is used. Our waterways and all the fish and species that live in them are precious taonga, so we have set out to understand how they are valued and what should be done to provide the future we want for our water.

Some of our waterways have high levels of E-coli and other illness causing bacteria for anyone who ingests them. We need your help in protecting the health and mauri of our waterways, which are under pressure due to increasing population and land development. We need solutions to be able to enjoy our beautiful waterways and this will require change. This needs to reflect our communities’ views informed by good evidence and information.

Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page (www.facebook.com...), and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say (www.haveyoursay.gw.gov.nz...)
