A Skydive for India (UNICEF Covid appeal)

$900 of $1,000 goal
Given by 23 generous donors in around 5 months

To combat the Covid-19 crisis in India, I will do a sponsored skydive for UNICEF!


There have been over twenty million cases of Covid-19 in India, with over 226000 deaths so far. That is the entire population of Wellington! The infrastructure of India cannot handle this kind of crisis.

UNICEF is working to produce install Oxygen Generation Plants in hospitals, provide testing machines, support essential workers and distribute vaccines across the most vulnerable communities in India.

To do this, UNICEF needs every cent we can give. With thanks to Skydive Auckland I have arranged a sponsored skydive! If we can raise $1000 I will jump from a plane (by the way - I am terrified of heights!). I hope you can support me for this initiative! Every cent counts, and will go to funding critical supports for the people of India!

I want to support the people of India, and from the far away lands of Aotearoa/New Zealand, this is the best way to send our aroha and support.

Kia ora team.

We are so close to the goal amount that I have decided to extend the closing date. This is to make sure we get the full amount to India. Every cent helps with this fight.

To paraphrase Nehru, through good and ill fortune we haven't yet lost sight of our quest!

Jai Hind.
