OKV Sustain 2000 Fundraiser - Kotahi Queens


This November The Community Builders NZ Trust is fundraising to sustain all their Ōtara community projects to remain in place for another two years. Covid recovery is going to take a long time, and initiatives under the trust help to relieve and uplift Ōtara residents. You can see their work through:

- The Ōtara Kai Village

- Ōtara Bike Burb

- Ōtara Youth Hub

- Pātaka Kai

- Ōtara Maara Kai

- My Street Movement

- Clover Park Community House

- NCLSV Apparel

Kotahi Queens are the mother and daughters team of Shar Renata, Memphis Luke and Candice Luke (Candy L'amour). Starting on the 15th of November, Kotahi Queens will take our first steps of 100km (walking or running) to fundraise for these amazing and vital community initiatives. So give us a hand, pick a number, and donate the corresponding amount through this Give-a-Little page. Follow Candy L'amour on Facebook to track out progress!

Donation/Koha Example:

1 = $1 koha

100 = $100 koha

Thanks for your koha! Lesgoooo!!! And don't forget to follow all the initiatives on social media!

Ngā mihi nui ki a koutou!   10 December 2021

Thank you to everyone who saw our plea for help and responded with kindness, aroha, and putea! $750 on behalf of the Kotahi Queens supporters will go into the Community Builders NZ Trust main fundraiser for Sustain 2000 Campaign. This helps to continue serving the community through activations, Kai parcels, youth empowerment, safer cycling initiatives and community rides, celebrating the diverse cultures in our hood and so much more!

It’s also bitter sweet as a final contribution on my behalf, as a new pathway has opened and I will be leaving The OKV in the new year to pursue a career in journalism. It’s my goal to return and report on all the amazing mahi of my team and others making a positive impact in South Auckland.

To keep an eye on what the crew get upto from here, be sure to follow The OKV on Facebook, Instagram and Tiktok.

Once again, much thanks and love goes out to you for opening your heart and wallet to our fundraiser. Have the best Christmas and happiest Gregorian New Year.
