Rotary New Zealand World Community Service and Giving Tuesday are synonymous. This year celebrated for the fifth time next Tuesday 29 November 2016, Giving Tuesday supports the potential of social media and the generosity of people in New Zealand and elsewhere to bring about real change locally and internationally; it provides a focus for them to encourage a donation not only of money but of time and talents to address the world’s hardship. It encourages partnership between volunteer groups, community to community, country to country. It brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners, volunteer and voluntary organisations, civil society, business and commerce, as well as families and individuals - to encourage and amplify universal kindness. The Pacific Island countries during the 2016/2017 South Pacific cyclone season are most likely to be in need of support again given the devastation of Cyclone Pam in Vanuatu in 2015 and Cyclone Winston in Fiji in 2016. When disaster strikes Rotary New Zealand responds when called upon with its Emergency Response Kits and other relief supplies to individuals and communities,

Giving Tuesday unites humanitarian endeavours around the world, encouraging giving and enabling organisations like Rotary to respond when disaster strikes. Giving Tuesday provides an incentive for people to empower one another whether donor or beneficiary.

Details can be found on Rotary’s website www.rnzwcs.org with links for making donations to either its humanitarian or community development activities, or can be made through givealittle https://givealittle.co.nz/org/rnzwcs/share

Others would have looked at the dying remnants of the old Act Party and written it off. Yet National needed an MMP partner and it saw the potential where no-one else did. And so it re-grew the Act Party in a petri dish in Epsom, and carefully nurtured it back to life... More>>
