Aaron - Asthma Ambassador: "Nothing Else Matters when you can't breathe"
Education is a powerful tool to keep people out of hospital & breathing easy. Try concentrating in class or at work when you can't breathe.Auckland
Would you be shocked to know that 80 Kiwi’s die from asthma every year?
I was and that is why I have become an ambassador for Asthma NZ.
Over the next 10-months I will be working with Asthma NZ to raise awareness, understanding and money so we can reduce this number.
I was horrified to know that Asthma costs NZ over $1 billion dollars every year. Imagine what we could do with that money if asthma wasn’t the problem it currently is.
Our goal is to reduce asthma hospitalisation by 50% by 2029. We have plenty of time if we all help out.
I will be asking for your help on this journey. The more people understand about asthma the better we will all breathe.
A bit about me:
I am a finance and procurement professional with a passion for learning and adventure. I am currently pursuing my Masters degree in Psychology and aim to have a career in Academics. This opportunity to raise awareness about Asthma while having fun really appealed to me. While I do not have any previous fund raising experience, I am very interested to learn to enable me to support Asthma NZ in their goal to raise awareness about this health issue.
80 New Zealanders die each year because of asthma. No one should die from asthma.
Asthma NZ have been providing education, training and support for 48 years. Our nurses go out into the community where people need us. We visit people in their homes, at school, in community centres, at sports clubs, on the marae, we travel to where people need us to be.
The education, training and support Asthma NZ provide keeps people out of hospital and allows them to live with asthma, not suffer from it.
Use of funds
All the money raised from this project will be used to create tech savvy asthma educational tools so everyone has access to education not just those in the main centres.
