For as little as $20 a month, you can help give children across New Zealand the learning aids, sporting opportunities, medical and mobility equipment, and everyday essentials they need to thrive.
So, are you ready to be a hero for kids like Henry?
Henry is the bravest little guy you’d ever meet. Every day, he struggles against two debilitating conditions that make breathing and swallowing really difficult – but Henry keeps up the fight.
Thankfully, there are vests which use vibration technology to loosen mucus and clear the airways. Unfortunately, this crucial device costs thousands of dollars, and Henry’s family were already struggling to make ends meet.
The team at Variety were so happy to be able to fund a vest for Henry, with help from our supporters.
Every child is unique, and each has different dreams and needs.
From as little as $20 a month, you’ll help Kiwi kids with:
Mobility equipment, beds and medical devices
"She's overjoyed with her mobility trike, and every day she can't wait to ride it."
Stationery, learning aids, uniform items and other school needs
"I can't wait to start school with my brand new uniform!"
Extra-curricular opportunities, such as camps and sports
"I got player of the day at netball - I'm so glad I had a go!"
Hero for Kids donors helped fund Mia’s music therapy.
Her mother writes:
“My daughter has been able to make friends and communicate in a safer, better way. She’s just blossomed and is extremely happy!”
Help young New Zealanders like Henry and Mia.
We receive hundreds of applications each year for beds and warm bedding, medical and mobility equipment, digital learning aids and other urgently needed items.
As a Hero for Kids monthly supporter, your donations are combined with those of other generous donors to fund the most urgent and immediate of needs, one child at a time. This allows us to help hundreds of children across New Zealand each year.
We’ll send out your tax certificate at the end of the financial year (in April). This will cover all your donations, so you don’t have to keep track of several different receipts. If you make a donation in addition to your regular monthly payments (such as a donation to one of our appeals), you’ll receive a confirmation via email; then this will be reflected on your annual tax certificate. Donations are eligible for a NZ tax credit of 33.3c in the dollar.
Variety does not rely on government funding. It is supporters like you who make our work possible. This is why every person who chooses to join our Hero for Kids team is a gamechanger!
