A Dawn Dance Party in Wgtn. Botanic Gardens! @PledgeMe

A Dawn Dance Party in Wgtn. Botanic Gardens! @PledgeMe

[Scoop Editor's Note: Rise & Shine is a Wellington based youth wellbeing project which holds dawn dance parties (with yoga, yummy healthy breakfast and massages) to fundraise to hold more dawn dance parties for Kiwi kids in Schools around New Zealand. They also make the very best videos. Rise & Shine is a project of the @Enspiral Network (or village) which Scoop joined (formally) in February.

They are doing a crowd-funding campaign which we massively endorse. The dawn dance party I attended last month was amazing. An event at the Botanic Garden's Soundshell will be pure magic.

New Scoop heartily endorses this crowd-funding campaign and its mahi. Click here to Pledge and help New Zealand youth to Rise & Shine and flourish!

This event will be free to attend but it has some significant costs involved. Half of the costs are already covered, your pledge will help cover the rest.

Any profits will be used in Rise & Shine initiatives in schools, getting kids dancing and teaching kids recipes to make their own super-cheap, super-nutrituous breakfast in a fun and engaging environment.

Check out our wide range of contribution options on the side, there are some incredible rewards such as Dj's at your next office or house party, gifts, workshops, office parties and VIP experiences on the day.
