World's oldest Hip Hop Crew to shake it in Las Vegas

If it was a goal to qualify to compete at the World Hip Hop Champs in August, the news that the 37 person Hip Op-eration crew has been invited as guest performers is a dream come true. The average age of the Waiheke Island based crew is 76, with wheelchairs and zimmer-frames no barrier to showing the who's who of hip hop and MTV audiences in 40 countries how its done, if they can fund the travel. Connect with the crew and access video.

8yr old Kate gives her long locks to another

The moment Kate learned about the Beautiful Lengths wig programme she decided to donate her long hair. This big hearted 8 year old from Mairangi Bay then upped the ante with a goal to raise $300 for the Child Cancer Foundation,  a goal that she has already doubled. Request contact details and develop a story about Kiwi kids becoming being champions for charities.

Giving little Leah the gift of movement
Nine month old Leah has MPEI, a rare form of epilepsy that leaves her unable to lift her limbs or support her head. The young Hamilton family are exploring every option to help improve Leah's health and quality of life including treatment overseas but first up they'd love to get Leah a spa bath as she is happiest in the water, where she can move freely with her parents. Request contact details.

Thanks for helping us change lives
Your coverage of Givealittle causes changes lives. In the last few days Jaden Movold's wish for more independence has been granted with individual donors and the Mazda Foundation responding to a Herald on Sunday story and the Stuff.co.nz homepage placement of Reece Jimmieson's story helped grow his cause page total from $700 to $13,000 within 12 hours. Thank you, we appreciate your help.

The April Scorecard is out
Although not as huge as March the April donation result of $159,506.38 is outstanding and a whopping four times greater than the same period last year, proving  kiwis are right behind zero fees online fundraising. The confidence that 100% of donations get through motivated 2,242 people give an average of $71 each to hundreds of causes. Get in touch to learn more about why online is on the rise.
