For people who give a %
We set out in 2012 to evolve the regular giving experience into something better and grow a movement. Now with over $985,000 dollars raised and thousands of lives positively impacted as a result of these donations, we’re ready to supercharge the Collective and aim for 1,000 members by the end of 2018. But we believe that’s just the beginning. Will you join and be a part of those first 1,000 people to give a %?

Te Aro School is about as vibrant and bustling a learning environment as any kid could hope for. Hidden away at the south end of The Terrace, Te Aro is overseen by its remarkable principal, Sue Clement, and teaches children from over forty nationalities and cultural backgrounds. Te Aro is one of six Wellington schools engaged in the Garden to Table program.
If the walls of the Orongomai Marae could talk, there’s a good chance they would never stop. For over forty years, Orongomai has been at the centre of Upper Hutt, providing support, community and an incredible number of social services to people throughout the region. Our partner charity Kaibosh, provides food for one of these social services. We had a chat with the lovely Cameron Morrell Kapua about the history of Orongomai and what makes it such a special place.
To start this piece-of-words thing I thought I’d come up with a clever title. What is the opposite of tunnel vision? Bridge vision? Panoramic vision? Paddock vision!? Not as clever as I’d hoped for, but has a bloody decent Kiwi ring to it so I’ll stick with that.
What is happiness? A perfect sunset? A mansion on the hill? A dog walking on its hind legs? It’s the question that lingers in our minds when we consider which job to take, what to have for lunch and the sort of person we should spend the rest of our lives with. But do any of us have the answer? Sigmund Freud was not convinced and insisted that ‘the pursuit of happiness is a doomed quest.’ Fortunately, it seems that few of us agree.
In true Kiwi fashion, over a hot cup of tea, we sat down with two of New Zealand’s most fascinating people to discuss the state of the world around us, what the future looks like and what matters most. Melissa Clark-Reynolds (ONZM) is a digital strategist, technological entrepreneur and Future 50 donor of ours. Sarah Longbottom (MNZM) is the founder and former executive director of Ngā Rangatahi Toa. Smart, successful and more than a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, Melissa and Sarah share with us four key areas to help unf*ck the world.
Get amongst it.
