We want to keep kids warm this Winter and make them feel valued!


‘Give a Kid a Blanket’ is a community activated art action lead by artists Bernie Harfleet and Donna Turtle Sarten, and run across the greater Auckland area.

Each Winter since 2015, ’Give a Kid a Blanket’ has gathered blankets and other winter warmers, which are given to children and families in need through social workers, public health nurses and other community workers.

For those who receive the donations, the idea is that they not only feel warmer but importantly, valued by the wider community.

While the projects results in growing numbers being helped to be warmer, it’s focus is on the simple act of kindness that so many can make and how collectively as a community we can make a difference.

Over the last four winters we have given out 30,000 blankets plus other warm items. This year we are doing it again, but as the collection has grown each year so have the costs of running it. This year in order to ‘Give a Kid a Blanket’, we are hoping people will ‘Give a Little’ too.
