Hey, New Zealand! Let's Step Up!

Hey everyone!!

So I’ve signed up and to join Red Cross Journey and to fundraise for the amazing work Red Cross do locally and internationally. They’re an incredible organisation that they provide relief to Kiwis affected by disaster, deploy specialist delegates overseas, and help former refugee families settle here in Aotearoa.

The challenge is to walk 10,000 steps a day for 21 days through September. The further I walk, and the more I fundraise, I’ll be learning about the incredible real-life journey of Donna, a Red Cross nurse who has worked all over the world to help people affected by conflict and disaster. She has seen immense pain and suffering, but also joy in the people she has helped along her journey.

Red Cross has an incredible far-reaching impact on communities worldwide. In case you’re wondering what kind of work Red Cross does and where the donations will be going, here’s a list of just some of the places that they provide aid and assistance…

• Our disaster response teams support people affected by events such as Christchurch in the March 15 attacks; Nelson during the devastating fires; and Christchurch after that frightening gas explosion just the other week.

• Settle former refugees into life in New Zealand.

• People get Meals on Wheels delivered to their door and taken to medical appointments.

• Our highly-skilled international delegates work in areas of conflict and disaster around the world.

 

I’ve created a team and would love you to join me in fundraising and supporting this cause!
Be sure to link up with me on social media (@brontecoluccio) to stay up to date on events, get some ideas on how to keep those steps up, and on other ways you can support if you’re unable to participate yourself!

Hopefully this has been enough to convince you to either sign up and fundraise along with me, or to donate to a fantastic cause. Every donation is so valuable, so thank you so much in advance for all your support to both me and the New Zealand Red Cross!

Thanks,

Bronte Coluccio
