Every year we provide children and their families with a joyful Christmas
Many families are living in poverty in New Zealand are struggling to make ends meet. We know that when parents are having to make tough choices between putting food on the table and paying the rent, things like Christmas presents and treats aren't always possible.
For 10 years the Kindness Collective has been providing the magic of christmas and so far has brought joy to over 26,450 children.
Christmas Joy Store:
The Christmas Joy Store is New Zealand's first Social Toy Store that invites referred parents and caregivers to choose gifts and treats for their children they know they'll love, off the shelves, shopping for free
Extra joy around Aotearoa:
We also spread joy throughout the country with food boxes and presents for children and families through our community partners in Auckland, Northland, Waikato, Hawke's Bay, Gisborne, Taupō, Tauranga, Rotorua, Wellington, Taranaki, Christchurch and Otago.
Every year we support community kindies, kōhanga reo and early learning centres to have Christmas parties, where every child gets a present from Santa, they're visited by their favourite entertainers, enjoy bouncy castles, bubbles and a big shared meal with their centre, teachers and whānau.
