My grandson Reuben Miller aged 11 was so moved when he watched Campbell Live last night about children who are hungary, he asked if he could set up a table "like Daffodil Day" and ask for donations for the Kidscan appeal. Along with his 2 friends, they sat outside the local Four Square Supermarket today and raised $69.80 cents - well done Boys! Proud Grandmother Joy van Lier

Auckland Energy Consumers Trust cheques of $320 were just issued to Auckland power customers.
Instead of choosing Direct Bank Deposit or Cheque - there should be an option to donate - then each year your dividend would go to school lunches.
Only 1000 people have to select donate and $320,000 will be raised - every year!
I'm sure you can convince AECT to promote the donation option

Can always vote Labour as Labour intends to handle the so-called poverty issue by lowering real wages through devaluation of our dollar and higher inflation. Lower real incomes always sorts out so-called poverty.Ie vote Labour and you can see our current $13.50 min wage reduced to around $10 value today. Sure, you will have more dollars in your pocket, but your income will have gone down with what you can buy.The problems of so-called poverty today have never been about money, its education. till we look at how people on the same incomes live and succeed on just as low incomes and learn from it, we wont magically fix poverty.One associated problem is Labours RMA which has created a housing shortage which has driven up prices and rentals.Another problem is people now demand better housing and are not prepared to have even 'average' housing.Eg earlier this year we had the central Auckland apartments covered by Campbell Live which were very basic, a small room for $40-50,000 right in the centre of Auckland. Kiwis wont use the, as they are too basic with their shared facilities so typically only foreign students will use. But add it up, the interest on the mortage of such a room is around $50 a week for central Auckland, but the so-called poverty could reduce their demands for better to use something as basic. There are choices that can be made, but people want handouts vs get off their own backsides to help themselves. If cant afford your rent, find another cheaper option by moving.Can always apply for a green card for the USA. There they have their much higher min wages ... Oh wait, their min wage is $7.25 US or call it $9 NZ ... when ours is $13.50! Our min wage was in 2011 the 9th highest in 197 countries listed, and since then with the recession others higher than us have used devaluation and inflation to lower their real incomes so we are probably about 5th highest in the world.

Some ideas for future fundraising for various groups. For companies, groups and individuals it is a great way to advertise and gain tax rebates: Auction of childrens art. Framed mural, quilts, ethnic art, mosaic, wall hangings, textile art; the scope is limitless. Festival, concert, musical by children. Short film/ video, made by kids, screening . $5 buck a head concerts by local bands.

For the past 3 months myself and my partner Leanne who are the year 12 leaders of 'Interact' at Mount Albert Grammer School have been planning a Can Drive for KidsCan. This is happening this week. From Monday till now, we have collected 1091 canned products from students and tomorrow we expect to get 1000 more.
