Painting for a Koha

$4,430 of $5,000 goal
Given by 31 generous donors in 21 days

I want to encourage as many people as I can to give big this year to enable this service to keep on helping our kids.


I want to tautoko the amazing work done by my husband Mike King and the I Am Hope team raising funds for Gumboot Friday.

The fund gives young people across NZ access to free counselling and is filling a massive gap that no other service currently provides.

It is essential that children have access to help and with this fund they can avoid weeks stuck on waiting lists and can find a counsellor to suit their indivisible needs from one of the 3000+ registered to the Gumboot Friday platform.

Joanna King's involvement (page creator)

For every $100 donation I will gift a painting to the donor and we will all watch the painting series grow as the donations grow. The themes will be around the Gumboot Friday/I Am Hope kaupapa and I will do as many as required to match the donations.
