About Heads Up for Kids

For the past two and half years, Lions Clubs with the help of Resene and Fastway Couriers have been collecting old New Zealand and all foreign cash for the benefit of Kiwi kids.

The old and foreign cash is then redeemed for legal tender and used to fund young people to attend programmes that help them build confidence, realise their potential and grow as a young person.

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand has estimated that there is over 80 million dollars in old New Zealand currency unaccounted for. To date Lions have collected 14 tonnes which has been redeemed to close to $400, 000 in legal tender– Lions are aiming to collect one million dollars.
