    Dear Friends and Supporters,

    As we all start to wind down for Christmas, we just want to take a moment to say a huge thank you for your support over the past year. Whether you brought a t-shirt, shared our Facebook page, donated to us, or talked about our cause to friends and family, we are so incredibly grateful for your support.

    Even though it has been a challenging year, we were excited to achieve a big milestone by holding our first "Wellness Workshop" with our organisations’ wellness experts. We have some big plans for 2021 and will make sure we keep you updated.

    We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and take some time to rest, recharge and enjoy our amazing kiwi summer.

    A very special thank you to those who are working through the holiday period, doing an incredible job to look after us and protect us - we appreciate you all! The below quote really resonates with us, we understand the sacrifices you make and the challenges you face at this time of year.

    "This is going to be a tough week for first responders. This week we will respond to car wrecks filled with bodies and Christmas gifts, we will respond to cardiac arrests during family dinners, we will respond to suicides for the people where this isn't the happiest time of year. We will respond to drug overdoses, murders and sexual assaults......and when our shift is over we'll return to our families, act like none of it happened and try to enjoy the holiday season. Let's stick together this week everyone and be safe. " - DanSun

  • Wellness Workshop

      23 November 2020

    On the 9th/10th November we held our very first wellness workshop! We were very fortunate to utilise Huntly House as our stunning venue for this two day event.

    The purpose of this workshop was to bring wellness representatives together from across the various organisations in a unique opportunity to collaborate, share their knowledge/experience, find out what others are doing well and where they might be facing similar challenges.

    It was also a great opportunity for us to share our vision for Te Kiwi Māia and allow them to provide some guidance on the areas they see us being able to add the greatest value.

    This would not have been possible if it wasn't for all your kind donations. We really appreciate

    your support and help to spread the word of Te Kiwi Māia.

    Thank you to all who attended and for your outstanding contribution and making this an incredibly successful event.

  • World In Union - Rebecca Nelson and The Band of the Welsh Guards

      9 October 2019

    We are very excited to announce the album 'Reverence' by Rebecca Nelson. All profits made from album sales are going to Te Kiwi Māia!

    This track 'World In Union' features on the upcoming album, due to be released in November this year.

    Able Musician Rebecca Nelson from Royal New Zealand Navy, SOL3 MIO star Moses Mackay and The Manukau New Zealand Police Choir (with some support from Fire and Emergency NZ) have teamed up to show their support for the mighty All Blacks as they attempt to win a third successive World Cup title, with this awesome rendition of World in Union!

    Not only does this song show support for the All Blacks, but also to their fellow first responders and NZDF personnel.

    To give credibility to the title “World in Union”, the band featuring on the track is courtesy of another rugby powerhouse nation, The Band of the Welsh Guards.
