In neighbourhoods across New Zealand, kids are looking forward to a Christmas that may not happen. Forced to choose between food or bills, hard-working parents like Melody worry whether they’ll be able to provide even the simplest Christmas meal for their children.

“I’ll only eat dinner 2-3 times a week so that the children have enough food. This is very stressful… a lot of crying and minimal sleep.” 

Food insecurity is the everyday reality for 98.8% of the families Variety helps.

Please donate today to provide grocery support for families like Melody’s this Christmas.

Auckland man to run seven marathons in seven days for children’s charity

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Community News

A runner will complete seven marathons in as many days to raise money for underprivileged children.

West Auckland man Harrison Sanders, 23, said he wanted to experience a struggle, and encourage others to make a change with him.

“There are tens upon thousands of kiwis children that are going without food and the basic essentials to get by over this time of joy,” he said.

“So this year, I wanted to help out those who are in need over this time of joy.”

The primary school teacher will complete the runs from December 13 to 19, starting from Hobsonville School and running around west Auckland.

“The route will be the same every day, and I would love people to join in for parts of it whether it be running, biking, scootering, or even driving alongside,” Sanders said.

He has partnered with Pak n Save Westgate, Breaker and Tuatara Baseball, and every $100 raised will supply a child with a $75 Pak n Save voucher, $25 towards school stationary and a free sports ball.

Sanders previously ran 45km a week in the space of a year to raise money for mental health, alzheimers and epilepsy charities.

“Nothing prepares you for this amount though. So I look forward to the mental game I will be faced with,” he said.

“The route will be the same every day, and I would love people to join in for parts of it whether it be running, biking, scootering, or even driving alongside.”

He has set up a Givealittle to receive donations.

Kiwis are now able to download their Covid vaccination certificate, called 'My Vaccine Pass'.

Anyone who is fully vaccinated can request a pass by visiting mycovidrecord.nz or by calling 0800 222 478. The vaccine pass can be downloaded as an image on your phone, added to Apple Wallet or Google Pay, or printed out as a hard copy.

Covid-19 Minister Chris Hipkins has asked people to be patient and request their passes over the next few days, as the website has already seen an overwhelming demand since it was launched this morning.

Passes will not be required to access essential businesses such as schools, supermarkets, or pharmacies, but more details on how they will be implemented are expected to be outlined in the press conference at 1pm today.

What you need to know:

• You can request a vaccine pass at mycovidrecord.nz or by calling 0800 222 478.
• If you don't receive an email with your pass within 24 hours, email the My Covid Record team on help@mycovidrecord.min.health.nz or call 0800 222 478. Check your spam folder first.
• The pass will be required later this year to enter some businesses and venues.
• There are separate passes you can request for domestic use and international travel.

...to nominate a spot in your community needing a splash of colour!

This is the LAST WEEK to make your Resene Colour Your Community nomination so make sure you take a few minutes to share a few words about an organisation, business or community project that needs a bit of a refresh. It could be for a park bench that's seen better days, a building that's wilting, a children's playground that lost its shine or a wall that's a bit of a bore.

Apply now for up to $1000 worth of Resene paints, wood stains and products to spruce up an area in your 'hood.

There'll be five winners announced later this month - plus you'll be invited to vote for the People's Choice Award.
