Notes from previous recipients:
*It’s made things for me a lot less stressful when money is low and feeling stink cause I can’t afford much just seeing my kids smile when opening their gifts from the aunties really warms my heart I used to feel like a failure when I couldn’t give them anything.
*when I share the story of where they have come from and getting the personalised notes with in these special parcels their smile on their faces and the korero of giving and receiving something from strangers is the lesson of xmas spirit that brings meaning, hope, appreciation, and love I’m so glad and blessed.
*I was off work and my last maternity pay was on Xmas day. having had several DV events leading up to it if it wasn't for the aunties my children would have had no Christmas at all. Even the Christmas dinner and food for the weeks up to New Years was all because of the aunties.
We work with around 500 people a year to provide access to emotional and practical resources. Primarily this is to women and their families who are seeking to heal from domestic violence.
Your donations will help pay for Christmas gifts for children.
