    With 5 days to go, we're so incredibly excited to share the hard work of the Two Hands Tattoo crew (pictured) in Ponsonby who raised $4320.00 towards our project and pushed us over the finish line by 19%.

    The team at RainbowYOUTH would like to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts who donated and shared this crowdfunder. When we print our next batch of resources because of these funds, everyone that donated will be included in our 'donor wall in the resource.

    We can't wait to see where the I'm Local Project goes next, and it's because of you all that we'll get there!

    Big aroha from the team at RY!

    As of yesterday, we officially hit 75%. That means that we have just over a month to dig deep and push to 100%.

    We'd like to thank every single of of the donors who have given so far. A lot of you have a personal connection to the work RY does, or know of of the people working on it. We thank you so much for acknowledging that it takes a village to make change.

    If you haven't already, make sure you let others know about your generosity, and encourage them to give what they can.

    Lets go all the way whanau! Coz every kiwi kid deserves to be loved and supported by their local community.

    Wow! We are amazed by the amazing generosity of those who came along to our launch at Mexico Ellerslie. It was an awesome night full of tacos!!!

    We're now 23% of the way to our goal, and we are so excited to see this campaign grow.

    It would be so great if our backers could do us one more wee favour: share this link on your social media and let your friends and family know about your generosity and about what we're trying to achieve.

    Every little bit helps!
