Kitchen Takeover Rotary fundraiser
We want to say a massive thanks to Carol and the Rotarians at the Papamoa/Te Puke Rotary Club. They recently held a “Kitchen Takeover” where each fellow Rotarian hosted a meal in their homes inviting friends/colleagues/neighbours, with all the proceeds being generously donated to Live for More. They raised an incredible $6,167.00. Such an incredible and innovative idea! THANK YOU so much for all your hard work and effort, we are very grateful for the support it means so much to us.
Thank you Tauranga
Live for More would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Tauranga City Council for their grant to us for $30,000 to go towards our Tai Tautoko surf therapy programmes! We are so honoured and stoked to get this support and it means heaps knowing there are people truly believing in the work we are doing. Thank you TCC!
Thank you Trinity Lands
Thank you Trinity Lands from the whole team here at Live for More!
We are so blown away by the generosity of Trinity Lands. They have pledged $35 000 for next three years to support expanding our Tai Tautoko programme . This is the programme that supports graduates to continue to get free from their pasts and inspired to live positive and fulfilling lives. This support will help us achieve the main outcomes we have for Tai Tautoko:
- Out of the justice system
- In employment or course
- Drug free
- Overall mental wellbeing
- Not associated with organized criminal groups
- Out of Prison
Just quietly we have been surveying these results and we are very proud of our graduates so far. Watch this space as we will publicize these outcomes and how we are tracking with them once we have finished surveying the past graduates.
Thank you so much Trinity Lands, your generosity and support means a lot to us. It will help us to really achieve these outcomes for the graduates seeing them living positive, fulfilling lives!
Massive thanks to the Honey Badgers
We are so grateful for the support of the Honey Badger’s that have selected us as one of the charities they are supporting this year.
“This year, we really wanted to focus on child and youth development, and anything to do with supporting mental health, particularly in areas like adolescent suicide prevention.” -Honey Badgers
Live for More most certainly works in these areas and is so appreciative of the support and funding.
