January 2013 Scorecard

While New Zealand was at the beach, 1231 online donors donated $107,430.51 to 157 kiwi causes on That’s 3 times more than January last year.

Average donation was $82 and the largest single donation was $10,000 made to help little Jesse Bessant get to treatment in the USA for his inoperable brain stem tumour.

There were 12,654 visitors to and the grand total jumped to $2,820,386.91.

Top beneficiaries of January donations were:

1. Rodney Gordon Trust by the Auckland Grammar community
2. Help the Prebbleton Fire victims by Selwyn District Council
3. Friends helping friends by Nick Marshall & Ben Roberston

There were 27 charity champions in January. Our favourite had to be the stellar efforts of Auckland mum Elaine Webb. Elaine ran 750km to raise $11,000 for Auckland Neo Natal Trust to pay forward the support she received during her premature baby son’s 51-day stay.
