    Thanks to you all - our Generosity Generator campaign to raise funds for the working drawings for our new build has been more successful than we ever imagined!

    We have been continually blown away by the support from our community - both businesses and individuals.

    So... how much did we make???!

    We are humbled to announce that on Givealittle we raised a total of $21,092!!!

    BUT.. then thanks to the very generous donations from Blackwell's Department Store in Kaiapoi and our amazing lawyers Helmore Stewart - they took us over the $30,000 mark!!!

    Then we received two more surprise donations one from an anonymous donor through The Gift Trust and also St Vincent de Paul Kaiapoi. Meaning we ended up with a whopping total of......$31,392!!

    If you're not already on our database, and want to be kept up to speed with all the amazing work that we do (including receiving updates on progress we are making with our new forever home), please follow this link to sign up to our newsletter.

    Thank you all once again!

    How incredible that we have raised over $15,000 on our crowdfunding campaign in less than a week! This shows us how much you all care about the work that we do, so thank you so much.

    Could we ask you all for one more bit of support? We are so close to reaching our target, we thought that if everyone that donated forwarded this email to at least 3x people who are passionate about community and environment, they may be inspired to donate (just like you did) to help us reach our goal. Link below for ease;

    Our last match funder is still running, and only has a few hundred dollars left to go....they should get in quick!

    Yesterday we received a phone call that made us jump up and down and smile ear to ear for the whole afternoon!

    We were told that an anonymous donor would like to make a $1,000 donation to Satisfy through The Gift Trust in Wellington We were blown away! How incredible that someone had heard about our crowdfunding campaign and wanted to support us.

    To our anonymous donor, yesterday you provided the gift of joy! Your generosity will go a long way to helping Satisfy help our community.

    Thank you from the bottom of our heart. x

  • What a roller coaster ride!

    We have been absolutely blown away by the support for our Generosity Generator Givealittle campaign. We are only three days in and we have smashed the mid-way mark! How awesome is that?! There's still a way to go, but we know that our supporters and the wider community have our back.

    Thank you to First Windows and Doors Christchurch - who were our inaugural match funder and helped kick things off - to an absolutely flying start! Match funding allows every generous donor to double their impact. So for every dollar you donate our generous business supporters will match your donation. How good is that?

    We have three other match funders coming up this week that we would like to thank:

    RW Design -

    Kaiapoi Aluminium Joinery -

    Men at Work -

    So if you haven't donated yet and you can spare a few dollars, please consider donating as soon as you can to allow your impact to be doubled!
