Raising money for local children in need to honour our angel baby on his first birthday.

Tauranga, Bay Of Plenty

This October 9 marks one year since we met and lost our baby Patrick Mylo Russ and we want to honour him on his special first birthday.

While too many parents have empty arms, there are far more children in need of love and support.

So, to commemorate Patrick, we have set up this page to raise money for Homes of Hope NZ. It is an amazing local charity here in Tauranga, New Zealand which offers foster care and therapeutic support to children in need in our community.

Homes of Hope focuses on giving children who have experienced neglect or abuse a loving and safe home while they wait for their forever home. They have three foster homes and look after around 12 children at any one time. They make sure to keep siblings together and look after some children for up to four years.

We think this is the perfect charity to raise money in Patty's name and every dollar you donate will go to good use. Thank you everyone for your love and support as our family creates a lovely lasting legacy for our little man.

Love from Nick, Rachel and Ethan
