Our story begins in June 2010 when a Tauranga kid named Max was diagnosed with Cancer.
Fast forward 6 months and Max’s Dad and a group of mates decided that they wanted to do something awesome to ‘pay forward’ the terrific support that Max received during his initial treatment at Starship Hospital.
In January 2011 the 4good charitable trust was formed and the scene was set. As a group, we were sick and tired of traditional fundraising methods where people gave based on guilt (picture malnourished African child) or because they couldn’t cross the street to get away from the collector in time (we love the environment too but leave us alone!)
The concept was pretty simple. We wanted people to feel good about giving and we didn’t want the dollar amount or having to choose a charity to get in the way.
Who is on the 4good team?
The 4good team is together because we believe in doing good things for people who need it. We all volunteer our time, because we believe that every donated cent should go to the charities we support.
Our team is:
