February was another stunning month of Kiwi generosity! 2008 online donors donated $133,690.65 to 232 kiwi causes on Givealittle.co.nz. That’s 20% up on January.
Average donation was $66 and the largest single donation was $5,000 made to support the family of wee Kiriana Ronaki who was diagnosed with a brain tumour in January.
There were 23,038 visitors to givealittle.co.nz and the grand total jumped to $2,938,719.56
Top beneficiaries of February donations were:
- Angus Little by Campbell Live, the Black Caps & the Little Family
- For Kiriana by the Ronaki family
- Giving Kirstin a better quality of life by Nicole Edwards
There were over 45 charity champions in January. This month we honor the efforts of Kate Roper, who confined herself to a wheelchair for a week to raise funds and profile for her cousin Kane who is fundraising for stem cell treatment to combat his Multiple Sclerosis. She was even featured live on Breakfast TV.
