Raising funds for the purposes of NZ Bear Hunt Charity.
NZ Bear Hunt started as an activity in response to the Covid 19 Lockdown. It activated the Bears in Windows campaign with a supporting Facebook page, map and website.
Post lockdown, the founder Deb Hoffman is pursuing Charity Status where any funds raised through givealittle will be directly applied to the charity purpose - being to:
Create a sense of solidarity in the NZ community by supporting mental health and wellbeing in times of crisis in New Zealand.
This will be done by:
1. Activating the “Bears in Windows” Campaign at times of significant crisis in New Zealand that causes loss of life or significant damage. (E.G. Christchurch Mosque Shooting, a natural disaster such as a significant Earthquake or volcanic eruption, mining disaster).
2. Provide a toy teddy bear to children and youth at times of “Crisis Touch Points” in New Zealand, distributing through major organisations on the ground in these incidents.
3. Continue to Partner with Motion and Light to continue “Anthony’s Windows” production bringing a message of support towards mental and emotional wellbeing through the scripts and eventually forming an educational arm from this series for teachers, parents and other sectors.
I am the founder of NZ Bear Hunt, the bank account has been set up with the same name under the personal bank of Debra V Hoffman.
Funds will go towards charity purposes, putting wheels on the goals and objectives of the NZ Bear Hunt Charity. If for any reason, the charity does not go ahead the funds will be donated to charities supporting mental health and wellbeing e.g. I Am Hope.
