On any given day, more than 20,000 kiwi children have a parent in a New Zealand prison. When Daddy Comes Home, a children's book written by well-known New Zealand author Tommy Kapai, is a landmark project to initiate a brighter future for these children and their parents.

When Daddy Comes Home is not an ordinary book. Tommy has written this book to connect children of prisoners with their parents and inspire the parents to lead a positive life for their children.

Research shows that these children are 9 times more likely to end up in prison. It also shows that if ex-prisoners reconnect with whanau they are 40% less likely to reoffend.

To get the book into the hands of the children, author Tommy Kapai has established this fundraising campaign in conjunction with Pillars, the charity that supports positive futures for children of prisoners in New Zealand.

Every 10 dollars donated will see one child affected by a parent in prison, receive a copy of this book. From that 10 dollar donation $6.00 will cover the cost of production and distribution, with the remaining $4.00 being donated equally to the Charity Pillars, and Te Tuinga Whanau Support Services Trust.

Donations will be paid into a verified account of Tommy Kapai to allow funds to be distributed as aforementioned.

A donation of $10 will provide one book per child and people and organisations have been asked to donate based the number of children they would like to support. $2 from every $10 donation will also go to the charity Pillars and another $2 to Te Tuinga Whanau Support Services Trust which provides advocacy, information and support for reuniting families.
