Bluff Hill 24hr for Ukraine

  • Thank you

      1 April 2023

    It's been more than a month since the fundraiser but the kindness and generosity of people keeps leaving me in awe. You've donated nearly $3400 altogether which is absolutely incredible and I can not thank you all enough for showing solidarity and making this world a bit better a place through your kindness and selfless acts.

    Tenby and his team at Kiwi KARE keep on working hard in Ukraine supporting and helping the people who are living through the nightmare that this war is.

    It brings light to the darkness knowing that a year on people still care and keep on standing with Ukraine - and we must keep on doing so.

    So thank you once again.

  • Words of Gratitude

      26 February 2023

    Dear people,

    One would think that 24hrs would have given me enough time to think of words to describe my gratitude with but no, here I am, at absolute loss for words;

    I've been left so speechless and deeply touched by the kindness and beauty of humanity I've had an honor of witnessing while I spent 24hrs stomping on on the track (total of just over 96km according to my calculations!) as well as leading up to it and after it.

    From my nursing student friends living on allowances to friends and family around the world to complete strangers - generous donations and encouraging words have kept coming in - they gave me a boost of energy when at 4am after a 5min snooze I pulled shoes back onto my sore feet and carried on walking, time and time again they had me doing a little happy dance in awe of the generosity of you all.

    Like the sunrise after the darkness of the night, you lot bring so much light to this world with your kindness and care for people in need.

    And you did it guys - the target of $2400 was reached.

    However, it was a rather arbitrary target, just something to match the 24th and 24hrs really, so I'll leave this page open for donations for another couple of weeks - all funds raised will go to Kiwi KARE aid organization that's on the ground in Ukraine helping the civilian victims of this terrible war.

    Thank you everyone, once more.

    Your kindness makes the world a better place.

    Slava Ukraini ! 💛💙

    With love,

      Hanni - your amazing and selfless effort still resonates with donations incoming. You have put into action what many talk about. As Oscar Wilde said, “The smallest act of kindness is worth more that grandest intention”. And yet your act of kindness has also been demonstratively grand and we are very grateful to you. Thank you Hanni! 💙💛

  • Less than a week to go!

      19 February 2023

    Kia ora koutou,

    less than a week to go until I start walking... and keep on walking until the sun has set and risen again!

    With the horrific natural disasters recently from a earthquake in Turkiye that left tens of thousands dead to the cyclone that hit our little Aotearoa and left thousands homeless and killed 9 with many still missing, I acknowledge there are a lot of people in need.

    I just wish to say - whatever the cause, I applaud each and everyone of you who has donated to help others. No sum is too small and together we can do so much more.

    I am so grateful to everyone who has donated to this page so far - your kindness will be such a huge motivator to keep me walking through the sleep deprivation.

    Thank you.
