We are a charitable trust focused on putting the sparkle back into disadvantaged kiwi kids and their families.
Donations received on this page go directly towards helping disadvantaged kiwi kids and their families!. We need your help and support to do this.
At The Sparkle Foundation, we see it as all of our responsibility to ensure that all kiwi kids are provided with the opportunity to thrive. We believe that all people are always doing the best they can at the time. When we look at children and their families with this lense, we work alongside them to provide the unique support that they require without judgement.
It's easy to judge others, but until we have walked in their shoes we can't begin to imagine what life is like for them. Most people are doing the best that they can and aren't squandering their money on things many of us deem inappropriate or wasteful at the expense of their children. And where parents are squandering their money, this is usually a sign of larger issues a family needs support with and many are continuing the cycle from when they were once a child living in poverty themselves.
At The Sparkle Foundation, we seek to work with families to assist in resolving these inter-generational and systemic issues; many of which are all that they know from their own upbringing. We recognise this and seek to support those at this root cause level so that we can help create a better future for our kiwi kids and their families.
