Firstly thanks for checking out my page!!

I have started this endeavor because of a recent conversation when I thought if I could only get a million people to give me one dollar each I would have a million dollars, so with that in mind I have decided to see if it's possible.

I know this seems outrageous or even impossible but stranger things have happened!

I in no way want to take anything away from the truly worthy give a little pages for people who desperately need it, I am just inspired to see what can happen for a very typical nz family.

I have given myself 6 months to see if this is achievable with what I hope the end goal being the ability to purchase a home for my family, obviously I don't need a million to do this but hey why not aim big!!

So please join me on this exciting journey to see what we can achieve.

The only thing I ask is that individual contributions are a maximum of $1.

Emma Taylor's involvement (page creator)

I'm a working mum with a young family. Myself and my partner both work full time but like most Nzers we struggle with the rise of the cost of living. We would love to own a house for our children but the idea of even having enough for a deposit just seems impossible.

hello again  12 March 2016

Well with a little over 2 weeks to go i thought I would pop in and say hello and thank you. Thank you to those who have supported me in my cause and even though I am a little short of my overly ambitious (if not slightly ridiculous) goal as at today I am $548 closer than not to my goal of being a home owner. I have appreciated the support and donations from people that saw my page for what it is . . . An idea. For my own personal reasons after a few interviews and media interactions i did step away from the hype that my page originally caused and maybe that was to my detriment but netherless I have no regrets except to say once again that if I did cause offense or upset to anyone with my cause I am sorry. My journey with this has ticked along in the background while I continue on my path to home ownership which one day I hope to turn the dream into a reality for myself and my family. So once again thank you so much and good luck with your own dreams xo

    Good on you, Emma :) I got the idea of $1.00 internet sales years ago, before the banks would do it, so go for it! I believe in sharing the wealth, and how hard is it for all of us to help each other get a home like last child leaves home in a year or so, and then I'm planning on living in a bus, so at least it will be mine! lol Arohanui :)
