Make a kid’s Christmas

Variety – the Children’s Charity

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.

Time of your life (if you want it to be)

Lynette from Foxton

Hi there. I am a lady in my late 60s living in Foxton, who enjoys dancing and listening to modern international pop music. So if you know who Olivia Rodrigo, Dua Lipa, L.A.B, Teeks, Stan Walker or BTS are, or what Beautiful Mistakes, Good 4 u or Butter songs are, then you’re into my music. I am … View moreHi there. I am a lady in my late 60s living in Foxton, who enjoys dancing and listening to modern international pop music. So if you know who Olivia Rodrigo, Dua Lipa, L.A.B, Teeks, Stan Walker or BTS are, or what Beautiful Mistakes, Good 4 u or Butter songs are, then you’re into my music. I am asking if there are any others who are interested in joining me in my garage for sessions of listening and dancing to music, once a week. I already have some people interested but want more to enjoy this time. This is not about weight loss, unless you want it to be. This is not about fitness, unless you want it to be. It’s about enjoying the moment with others who have the same interests in music or dancing or even other interests. The session could be during the day but if I get enough interest, I will see about having a night session for those who can’t make day sessions. Please contact me on 0273616633 if you’re interested.
