We are fundraising so our awareness campaign can be completely independent of government and so that we can spread the messages that you tell us are important. Funds raised through Give A Little are all used in raising awareness and spreading the message that violence is never the answer.
Please support us with your own fundraising activities, and by making donations to our campaign. Your financial support will ensure a better New Zealand, free from violence.
