You can change a child's life

It’s impossible to learn and get ahead in life when you’re hungry, wet and miserable. Sadly, this is the reality for thousands of New Zealand children. Which is exactly why Julie Chapman started KidsCan 13 years ago – to make sure no child goes without the basic items they need.

Today, with the support of other caring Kiwis, KidsCan are able to provide over 177,000 kids with access to food, clothing and healthcare items in partnership with 732 schools across the country. But our job still isn’t done.

For just $20 a month, you can make a real difference for a Kiwi kid in need.
