Where does the money from Fun Run registration fee or Gift Box purchase go?
We’ve had to dramatically and rapidly change what we deliver, and how, due to COVID-19. Many of our nurses have been redeployed to help the health sectors frontline response, and PlunketLine where the amount of calls we're receiving have soared. A major chunk of our fundraising has been halted and we’re facing a serious shortfall of over $1M. But babies are still being born – 500 in the first week of the lockdown alone.
We need to raise $250,000 to shift our services online as soon as possible, so we can be there for the families who really need us. Every cent raised from this Mother's Day celebration helps us to do just that.
Is there anything else I can do to help?
The more money we raise, the more families we’re able to support. If you are able, you can make a donation online at https://raiseabundle.org.nz/donate/plunket
