The Unsung Heroes Charity Vote


I just wanted to inform you about our Unsung Heroes Charity Vote which is taking place right now.

Every year we give $10,000 to a charity selected from a shortlist. This year we’ve scoured the 20,000 + charities and selected seven, that we feel deserve more attention than they often receive….

Voting is easy, people simply select the charity they’d like to see the $10,000 awarded to, followed by their second and third picks. We’ll give each vote a 3,2 & 1 weighting and the charity with the most points after all votes have been tallied will be this years ‘unsung hero’!

This year’s charity shortlist:

• Paw Justice
• Kids Can
• Malaghan Institute of Medical Research
• Garden to Table
• Volunteering Auckland
• P3 Foundation

I hope you’re keen to spread the word as we’re obviously keen to have as many people vote as possible.

You are able to vote here and voting closes at 5pm on Monday 16th December.
