BBM Motivation Response | Helping vulnerable families during Lockdown.
To help families and the community who have been affected by Covid19 and provide them with food and financial support.Auckland
Thanks to the amazing generosity of donors through Give A little, Just Move Charitable Health trust was able to fundraise $9,947 to help support the work of BBM Motivation to help families who have been hardest hit by COVID 19.
• We repurposed our venue and started providing essential social services
• Hired commercial chillers and freezers to stock large quantities of food donations that would have been destined to landfill and waste.
• We have supported up to over 1500 people each week with food parcels and supermarket gift cards.
• Have volunteers to support the quick repack and distribution of food out to our members and the wider community
• Created community networks with other charitable services and NGO’s that deliver food to give to deprived families thus having a larger social impact and reach in communities
• Continue to purchase essential foods, household/baby necessities and items to support families access wrap-around services
141 donors supported our first appeal and we are extremely grateful for the support. The funding helps operate the BBM Foodbank to make food parcels that can provide a family with the ability to make hot meals every day for a week, serving a family of 4 to 6 people. The need continues for families who are struggling to adjust to unemployment and other financial difficulties due to COVID-19.
Just Move Charitable Health Trust continue to seek the support of crowdfunding and humbly thank all donors for this ongoing support.
Our vision is to break the intergenerational cycle of obesity among Maori and Pasifika in New Zealand through education and helping their families to choose to live a health-focused lifestyle.
Use of funds
Supporting our cause will enable us to provide families with necessities to cope with Winter approaching, clothing, blankets, food parcels, transport, food gift cards and access to wrap-around services ie Counselling, advocacy and medical/social services.

Last week Thursday we received truckloads of food and nappy pallets donated from Auckland Council. We shared these to the community as well as running a nappy drive-through. It was something that was just so special to help families and the wider community.
