    A lot has happened in the last few years.

    We have sent out over 800 packs and 3,000 Christmas presents to various organisations and families across NZ and are on track to sending out well over 500 packs just this year!!

    We went quite for a while over 2016 as we introduced our final addition to our family 2 months early and with a few complications but she is doing really well now.

    We were very honoured to receive the kiwibank local hero award end of last year (December 2017).

    We are excited for things to come and have a lot of plans to take the organisation onwards and upwards in the coming years!!

    Since starting we have sent our well over 150 packs, in fact 50 have gone out just since January this year :)

    We are currently getting upwards of about 5 packs a week as well as other packs like our Prem packs that get delivered to the local NICU's.

    We are officially registered with the NZ charitable Trust.

    We are also in the process of doing a big re-launch (by August 2015)

    We have an amazing new volunteer and 2IC Helen :)

    We have a new pack being developed, see keep an eye open for that :)

    We have finally (sorry my fault) applied for our official ird no, which will make us tax approved and will give you the chance to claim back on any donations you make to us. So should be set up by next week (will confirm).

    We have some new sponsors too woohoo!!!

    Lastly for now, but certainly not least I will be setting up a fundraising store page on our website where we will on sell items that can't go in our packs in order to help cover the ongoing funds required for our packs :)

    Thank you everyone for your ongoing support and sooo proud to be able to make so many awesome updates.

    Kindest Regards,

    Chercara Thompson
