KidsCan is fortunate to have the support of some great companies and brands.

Some of them back us financially while others provide us with vital supplies in kind. We appreciate the generous support they offer and are proud they choose to align themselves with our cause. We would like to give our heartfelt thanks to all the companies, trusts, foundations and individuals who have stepped up to the challenge and helped us get the KidsCan programme into New Zealand schools.
