We’re not giving Christmas presents this year, knowing the money saved is going to people that need our ongoing help more than presents this Christmas.

What’s in it for you? 

  • A great way to show your support for the people that need it the most
  • Be a good Citizen of Taranaki 
  • A good news story to share with your family, friends, business community, clients, customers  
  • Feel good knowing you are helping others and making a difference
  • Recognition on Te Karaka’s website, Facebook page, radio and newsletter 

How to do it 

  • Let us know so we can help publicise your good deed 
  • Tell your friends, clients and community what you are doing and why  

(e.g. e-card, newsletter, Facebook, website, news story) 

  • Sit back and feel the happiness that giving to others brings

What impact will it have 

Your gift will have a powerful impact on the lives of many and the things that matter most to you.
