For a child living in hardship, this can be the toughest time of year. Without enough food, warm clothing or shoes, these kids are facing a miserable winter.
As the temperature drops, so does their wellbeing - and children in schools and early childhood centres across New Zealand are waiting for your help.
Will you make a monthly donation to KidsCan to support a child in need? Just $30 a month will give a Kiwi kid the essentials they need to participate in learning: hot lunches and nutritious snacks, fleece-lined jackets and comfortable shoes and socks. Join us and help give all tamariki a fair start at life.
