Aucklanders Jesse and Dillon contacted us in 2014 to say they wanted to walk from Auckland to Taupo to raise funds for Kiwi Kid Sponsorship. Incredibly, they did the walk in just a few days, spreading the word about Variety and Kiwi Kid Sponsorship along the way.
They wanted to challenge themselves, not only by doing the walk but through fundraising enough money to sponsor several children. They set up an online fundraising page on Everyday Hero and asked their friends, family and local businesses to make donations. They ended up exceeding their fundraising target, raising over $2,000 which was enough to sponsor five Kiwi kids!
