Every day Red Cross volunteers across New Zealand deliver services to vulnerable people and communities.

“Love and prayers to the Samoan communities rebuilding their lives & to all those helping them.”
“Awesome work Maitangi school with your Bob 4 Job appeal and raising funds!”
“Talofa lava. Stay strong, keep spirit. Build again and live for the future.”
“All 60 students at our school wanted to raise money for the children of Samoa so they did jobs around the home to earn money "Bob 4 Job"”
“I have such fond memories of my time spent in Samoa, the people, the places, all so beautiful. Can't wait to return again soon.”
“I was so sad to see a place with such fond memories completely destroyed. It's my dream to see both Coconuts and Sinalei back up and running in the very near future.”
“Our small remote village, Kohukohu, held a community concert to raise funds to help the Samoan people restore their lives after this tragedy. I believe by donating it through Red Cross, our contribution will be directed to where it is most needed. Thankyou.”
“For the people of Samoa”
“Great effort! Really impressive. I look forward to meeting you on one of the Sunday runs!”
“Awesome achievement Louis! Good luck with your next epic adventure, whatever that may be!”
