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.
