SPREADING YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT 1 May 2019
Kia ora friends and generous donors
We wanted to provide you a final update on how your hard earned dollars will be shared when your Givealittle donations are paid into our account this Friday.
In our last page update, we gave our donors a voice calling for nominations on where your dollars should be spread. We then canvassed many Tasman and Nelson locals over the past few weeks to find out which organisations were heavily invested throughout the Nelson Fires asking for their local community to also nominate groups for a donation.
After listening to our donors and the affected local community, below is how this final donation list now stands. The recipients will be:
Whakatu Marae, Nelson
Richmond New Life Church
St John's Anglican Church, Wakefield
Nelson Suburbs Football Club
Nelson Volunteer Fire Brigade
Stoke Volunteer Fire Brigade
Wakefield Volunteer Fire Brigade
Richmond Volunteer Fire Brigade
Mapua Volunteer Fire Brigade
Upper Moutere Volunteer Fire Brigade
Top of the South Rural Support Trust
Prego Mediterranean Foods and Comida Cafe
Animal Evac New Zealand Trust
Nelson Fires Hay Convoy
Nelson Clean up Crew
Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter Trust
11 year old Leon Fenemor so he can continue sharing his artistic talent with us all
and the Tasman District Council's Mayoral Disaster Relief Fund who are currently processing applications received from locals directly affected by these fires.
A total of $28,375.80 came from 405 generous donations to our page.
Net funds of $27,311.51 will soon be paid out by Givealittle allowing us to pass on 100% of these generous donations to so many people and deserving organisations early next week.
We have said it before, and we say it again that without YOU, this fantastic result simply would not have been possible. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you again for supporting our page and getting behind those who needed our support the most.
