Please, also, if what you’re looking to donate is not on this list, email me. Or if you’d like to phone me, do that. I’m on 0275228115. Basically, if it’s not on the list, we don’t need it. 

Things we need all the time: 

The whole idea of the Aunties is that our people get the best we can get them, and we intend to keep it that way. If you have designer clothes that need a home, we now have The Aunties Shop.  These clothes not only go on sale, but are also for the women who come to the storage unit. They have made a lot of women very very happy. Lara has put in place a very simple and direct way of buying these items as cheap as chips. 

Please always bear in mind that, in any given year,  we  service and care for a lot of people, most of whom are dealing with the fall out of family/street or intimate partner violence. Their needs are many, and our aim is to provide them with as many of those needs as is practicable. We keep up with most needs but we always need more. And our kaupapa is meeting needs with aroha. If you don’t give with love, then please give to another charity, and not to us. This is the way this has to be. 

So what do we need, all the time? And how can you help us?

1) Money! 

Just go to our DONATE page, and it will give you all the details, including the form to download for payroll giving.

  • Undies/socks for women and kids in all sizes
  • Toiletries (hotel) for the NZPC, and normal sized ones for our clients. Nothing opened. Nothing used. 

 

The biggest way you can help us to get our whānau what they need is to share this blog, and/or find us on Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/refugeaunties  – I keep the Facebook page updated daily with needs, and stories. 

 

Many thanks for your interest, and compassion. We can’t  do this without you.
