Help Starjam Celebrate 10 Years With Star-Studded ‘Livejam’


Click for big version.


StarJam, a charity dedicated to empowering young people with disabilities, is celebrating its 10th birthday with its most ambitious show to date – and you’re invited!

A Live Aid-style extravaganza on Sunday 25 November, LiveJam will see large-scale events happening simultaneously at the Wellington Town Hall and Auckland Musuem Events Centre.

Hosted by TVNZ presenter Matt McLean, the Wellington show will involve song, dance and instrumental performances from more than 150 disabled young people from Wellington and the South Island, with guest appearances by Megan Alatini, Irene Van Dyk and gold medal Paralympian Mary Fisher.

Linked by video feed, the nearly sold out Auckland event is being hosted by TVNZ’s Simon Dallow, with Kiwi entertainers Ray Woolf, Simon Dallow, Adeaze, Shane Cortese and Ben Lummis all taking part.

Newly-crowned 2012 NEXT Woman of the Year Award, StarJam CEO and founder Julie Bartlett says the show is not just about celebrating ten years and the young people onstage, but about raising urgently-needed funds to help get kids off waiting lists and into StarJam’s life-changing programmes.


Working with more than 1000 disabled young New Zealanders over the past decade, StarJam empowers its young performers, allowing them to gain confidence, respect and make new friends - all in a non-competitive and supportive environment.

Do your bit to help StarJam by purchasing a ticket to LiveJam now. Priced from just $10, tickets are available through Ticketek and selling fast. Or text Jam to 3181 to donate $3.

Cantabrians can also get in on the action by watching from their local JamZone.

About StarJam - www.starjam.org

StarJam is a super-charity which creates national and international limelight opportunities for young people with disabilities. Known as “Jammers”, StarJam kids gain respect, confidence, empowerment, new friends, new hope and new purpose within a fun and inclusive atmosphere.

Our belief is that “wildly positive change” affects not just them and their families but their peer groups and the wider community in their perception of kids with disabilities.

Game Review: Until Dawn - Pick Your Own Horrible Adventure

Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn sees a group of dumb sexy teenagers take a trip to a spooky mansion atop a mountain. It is, obviously, a horror game. However, the game is so ridiculous it turns out to be more of a comedy. More>>

John McBeth: Our World Cup All Blacks

Forty or fifty years ago nobody really had any idea of what the selectors had in mind. There were often several trials, which sometimes featured over 150 players, possibly an inter island match or a final trial, then we listened to the announcement of the team on radio. The players weren't flown into the capital for a parliamentary function... More>>
