Helping vulnerable kiwi kids to have a better day and step up to a better life. We are their future.They are our future.
Do all children deserve to thrive?
Do all children deserve access to clean water, healthy food and medical care?
Do all children deserve to have adequate shelter, their own bed, and appropriate clothes?
Do all children deserve to dream, hope and smile?
We think 'YES' is the answer. And we believe that we must look after our own kiwi kids and our own people, first. So we support vulnerable kiwi kids in Northland, Aotearoa, NZ.
We've been helping kiwi kids and their whanau since 2012.
We PARTNER RESPECTED AGENCIES such as Police, Plunket, Women's Refuge, Educators, Iwi organisations, Social Workers and Health organisations because they know who is most in need, and we can support their ahi (work) but providing resources in emergency items (kai, furniture, clothing, bedding).
Our COMMUNITY jumps on board and donates most of the needed goods. We're the middle man passing it on to those partners- free.
Our ANNUAL PROJECTS include:
• Keep Our Kids Warm and Coats for Kids ( warm clothes and bedding)
• Christmas Toy Drive ( gifts for taitamariki-children and young people- from birth to 18yrs)
• Christmas Kai Boxes ( food parcels including hygiene, fresh veggies and meat)
Our ONGOING PROJECTS/PROGRAMMES include:
• Angel Bears (little teddies that go in Police cars, Ambulances and Fire trucks, hospitals and trauma packs for kids in trauma)
• Angel Treats (memory making moments for whanau registered with Hospice Mid North)
• KiwiMANA Kaiārahi (mentoring and Life Skills programmes for youth-we believe that this is the way to a better future and arresting the cycle of hopelessness, poverty and disconnect )
• Angel Emergency Response( our partners can request support for whanau they’ve idenitifed as needing kai, clothes, bedding, furniture)
We do fundraisers every year and rely on the generosity and care of our community sponsors. We have organised fabulous events with our amazing community and even have a Guinness World Record for head shaving 462 people in one hour! We don't do things by halves, man!
We are super charged Angels who believe that stuff just needs to get done - and we're are all volunteers.
We apply for funding to cover admin and running costs so that all our public fundraising goes directly towards supporting our most vulnerable children.
We polish each other’s halos occasionally, and sometimes we smooth ruffled angel feathers because it can become overwhelming and we can feel swamped under the tide of poverty and hopelessness. But we know one child lifted up can impact a whole whanau, and a whanau given hope can impact the next generation. That's making a difference!
We will value and respect all people, guided by Te Whare Tapa principles of wellness. The Physical, Mental, Spiritual and Social health of our tamariki & rangatahi will be our primary focus.
We will lead by example.
“Creating positive change for our tamariki and rangatahi by leading and facilitating community collaboration.” (Whanaungatanga and Manaakitanga principles)
All children deserve to thrive. Together we can make a difference.
So if you can help us, we'd really appreciate your help!
'Bald Angels Charitable Trust' believes all children deserve to thrive & we focus on the most vulnerable. We engage the community in whanaungatanga values: providing emergency essentials, trauma Angel Bears, youth mentoring & whānau support.
Christmas 2023 is happening for 1319 vulnerable children because of you 18 December 2023
Yes, 1319 tamariki will be smiling this Christmas because you cared.
Thank you so much for the amazing support.
of course it's more than just the gifts or the kai...it's knowing people cared enough to pack the boxes, choose and wrap the gifts. And we do care enough. Over 90 volunteers have helped and over 800 volunteer hours went into this 2023 Angel Christmas.
Every gift is chosen by social service partners & Angels who really care about that child. Wrappers pack aroha into each parcel. Our volunteers all gave up time and energy to make a difference, and YOU donated so we could buy the kai and make this happen. So THANK YOU for making a difference.

It was amazing to ‘bump’ into you on that road yesterday - made our day. Thank you so much guys for a very generous donation. It really helps to motivate us to keep riding! We will be passing through your area in late October and you are welcome to ride on the ‘Angel seat’ at the back. When we have done our homework we will post our itinerary. If you subscribe to the blog you can keep up to date.
Hi Trish - Thank you so much for your donation. It was good to meet you and your group of friends and we trust that you had an enjoyable day on the Monday. We are on our way home finally having a rest day tomorrow at Tauranga Bay.
