Gift a Safe Night

For most New Zealanders, when we need an escape we simply jump online and book a getaway. But for some of us that isn’t an option. Every night in this country, over 160 women and children are too afraid to stay at home because of family violence. Find out how we helped Women’s Refuge develop a radical new approach to fundraising.

Have you seen this squirrel?

The launch of Fix & Fogg's Chocolate Hazelnut butter and Chocolate Almond butter created a bit of a stir in Wellington, home of the best nut butters. There was a lot of interest from one particular fan; a six foot tall, cheeky grey squirrel.

Team Talk Coasters

Unfortunately, mental health is a growing issue among Kiwi men, and we know that problems don’t seem quite so big if we share them.

We’ve teamed up with Movember to create a series of Team Talk Coasters that will raise money to help fund programmes aimed at tackling issues concerning men’s mental health.

The Wellington Effect

We worked with WellingtonNZ (WREDA) to create a campaign centred around the thought that Wellington inspires and invigorates all those who visit, making you feel young again. It suggests that a break in the Capital may be able to reverse the aging process; something we call The Wellington Effect.

Support Women's Sport

Coverage of women’s sport in New Zealand is no laughing matter. We want to increase the profile of our female athletes and champion greater media coverage. If we’re serious about making change, let’s do it on a scale never seen before, like gaining the naming rights to the Basin Reserve.

An act like this requires your support, so please help us increase visibility for our women in sport and make a donation today.
