Let's show these young visitors that New Zealand is better than this and help them replace their stolen items.

Main image

This page is to raise money for Greta and Theo who arrived in New Zealand on the 2nd of January and four days later had everything stolen from their car. They’re 18 and 19 respectively and this is their first trip so far away from home. We hope this covers their losses and will show them that New Zealanders are decent people and their experience is not typical. Thank you.

Abby Ross' involvement (page creator)

Acquaintance. Found out about their plight from a friend and wanted to help.

Use of funds

Any money raised will be given to Greta and Theo to replace their stolen items. We hope to reach our goal and will stop fundraising when we do. Any surplus will be donated to the Australian bushfires

Thank you all so very much for your kind words and donations. We've spoken to Greta and Theo and they're overjoyed with New Zealander's response. Once we've worked through the detail of receiving the money as early as possible we'll work with Greta and Theo to find an amount that covers their costs and the remainder will go to an appropriate charity dealing with the Australian bushfire victims. Thank you again.

From Greta and Theo: "We lost a lot of hope and now we are just amazed by the kindness and gratefulness of the New Zealanders. We are in love with this spirit and cannot thank all of the people enough!"

Hope the scumbags who stole your packs don't stop you from enjoying the wonderful things which NZ has to offer. Best wishes for the rest of your trip.

Please get a car with a boot/trunk so your valuables are out of sight. Unfortunately there are low life thieves in most countries. I hope you continue your trip and love our beautiful country, take home amazing memories and have fun from now on.
