Take My Hands

Take My Hands connects those that have with those that have a need, by rehoming usable medical equipment from NZ to those working with people in need in the Asia Pacific region.

Over 300 givers have collectively raised $219,962.22 for Take My Hands. That has helped transport around 175,970 kg of much-needed medical equipment to our Pacific island neighbours.

What We Do.

We work with hospitals and health providers collecting the usable medical equipment and resources they no longer need. We also work with organisations in the Pacific and Asia that work with people in need. They provide us with lists of what they need, and we match that with the equipment our hospitals and health providers give us. We then work with warehousing, transport and logistic partners utilising the spare capacity that exists in their business (as much as we can) to collate and transport that equipment to our recipient organisations in the Asia Pacific Region so that it can be used where it’s needed most.

As a giver we’ll never hassle you for more money, call you or send you envelopes in the mail.

How it Works

Choose your charities

We’ve partnered with 15 trusted Kiwi-based charities. Choose one, some, or all. Tell us how much you want to give and how often. Set up once, then we’ll do the rest. Easy!

100% to charity

When you donate to a charity via One Percent Collective, a dollar given is a dollar received. The charity gets 100% of your donations. We don't take a cut.

See your impact

We’ll make sure you know what your dollars are doing. The difference they're making, the lives they're changing, and the stories they're creating.*

Don't just take our word for it.

I like the cause, the simplicity, and the flexibility of One Percent Collective. Keep up the great work!
