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.

"Over the last few weeks, Charlie and I have been keeping an eye on the progress of a bird's nest just by our house. Today, the nest was empty only 20 days later – the birds had all fledged and were hanging about like teenagers in the trees around our garden. Well done mummy thrush; you've been an inspiration."

Wellington’s cross-harbour ferry operator hopes to have its electric catamaran carrying passengers across Te Whanganui-a-Tara by Christmas.
East by West Ferries’ managing director Jeremy Ward says the Ika Rere (flying fish) is closing in on final sign-off following sea trials which began in August. It is on track to become the first commercial electric passenger craft operating in the Southern Hemisphere.
“It’s exceeded all our expectations in terms of speed and battery capacity – the design team are ecstatic,” said Ward, who is also a director of the Wellington Electric Boat Building Company which produced the ferry in Seaview, Lower Hutt.

Up to 30 Corgis are likely to line-up for the Black Hawk Wellington Corgi Race, to find the fastest Corgi - Pembroke or Cardigan.
The corgis are out to prove that furry, foxy and sturdily-built dogs with stumpy legs can indeed scamper at surprising pace.
The event will be held at the Belmont Domain, Lower Hutt on Saturday December 4 starting at 2pm. There will be at least two heats before the finalists battle it out.
The distance on the grassed flat surface is 60 metres. The winner will get a bag of dog food, courtesy of Black Hawk, and the honour of being the Wellington Welsh Corgi Club's fastest dog.
Last year, Freddy a Lower Hutt Pembroke Corgi owned by Alex and Joanne Wang took the honours in a close contest and Freddy will be out to repeat the effort again.
Anyone wishing to enter a Corgi should telephone 021 614 821.
