My Story

Last year I sat in a freezing cold tub of ice for six long long minutes to raise money for the children of NZ suffering heart defects, in support of one of my team who has experienced this first hand. I said I would never do it again as it was pretty horrendous, but the thought of being able to make a small difference in the lives of those kiddies and their families has me signing up again – and YOU can make a real difference to those kids and their families by clicking below on the Give Now button and giving generously to this awesome cause. Please!

Heart Kids NZ help supports kiwi kids born with heart defects, the highest occurring serious birth defect in New Zealand.

Please help me help them by giving whatever you can, and the more people that know about Heart Kids, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Your big heart can help these little hearts face what no child should ever have to go through. However big or small, every donation helps!

• $10.00 can provide a meal for a parent as they sit bedside with their child in Hospital.

• $25.00 can provide a family with a visit from a Heart Kids Family Support staff member.

• $50.00 donation can provide a family with food or petrol vouchers while they are supporting their child in Hospital.

• $70.00 will cover the cost of a Medic Alert Bracelet for a heart child.

I would love to see you at the event, please come along and have a laugh with me and my team as we take the icy plunge!

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!

In a couple of weeks were going to FREEZE ourselves to raise money for the charity Heart Kids, who provide support to families of children born with congenital heart defects.

We're clearly a bunch of nutters because for most of the team it'll be the second time (last time we were the Frozen Coconuts)!

This time we'll dress as super heroes...for the kids...

So we need you to please donate to the cause!

Heart Kids supports kiwi kids born with heart defects which is surprisingly (and unfortunately) the highest occurring serious birth defect in New Zealand. They do some pretty amazing stuff like…
- Assist in navigating the processes & procedures involved in ongoing medical care
- Help explain the medical procedures & acronyms (so many acronyms) involved
- Provide counseling for heart kids (and parents / siblings)
- Arrange support for families suffering financial hardship (e.g. while in hospital for long periods or stuck in Auckland away from home)
- Visit the kids & families in hospitals around the country and can arrange volunteer minders to give parents a chance to get a short breath of fresh air
- Organise heart kids events, camps, & trips with professional medical teams on hand*
- Supply frozen meals to the Starship Children’s Hospital heart ward (I can attest to the quality of their spag bol and mac’n’cheese)
- And so much more…

  • They even arranged a medically supervised trip overseas recently as a lot of the kids can’t leave NZ because they’re unable to get medical travel insurance – So that was literally a trip of a lifetime for a lot of them.

Any support you can give would be very much appreciated and you’re more than welcome to join the team as well or come along and laugh while we freeze our giblets off…
