TPG recently supported KidsCan's Back to School appeal to reach their goal of $350,000. This campaign helped change the lives of 40,000 Kiwi kids, who would have headed back to school without the essentials.
The funds from this appeal have made an incredible difference in many kids’ lives as they start the school year with the breakfasts, lunches, jackets, shoes and school supplies they would have otherwise gone without.
Providing these essentials is fundamental in helping break down the barriers to kids’ learning, and to help set them up for success with their education.
1 in 5 children experience hardship in New Zealand, and KidsCan help by providing food, jackets, shoes, period care and other health products to low-decile schools and early childhood centres across the country. The charity reaches over 200,000 children in 829 schools and 110 early childhood centres, sending over 5 million items from their Auckland warehouse each year.
KidsCan are on an urgent mission to find more monthly donors to support even more Kiwi kids. Find out more about KidsCan here and how you can help make a real difference in the lives of those in need.
