Welcome to Whole Lotta Life Foundation

Another new Charity that has signed up this month.

Welcome to Whole Lotta Life Foundation.

THE TEAM AT THE WHOLE LOTTA LIFE FOUNDATION ARE COMMITTED TO BREAKING DOWN THE BARRIERS FACED BY YOUNG ADULTS IN NEW ZEALAND DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER, AND CREATING A COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT.  

Young adults dealing with cancer face a multitude of SOCIAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, and MEDICAL hurdles. 

While most other young adults are leading healthy, active, and busy lives, a cancer diagnosis often makes it difficult to keep up socially, academically, and professionally, as well as relate to others. It is challenging for young adults with cancer to find strong, reliable peer support as they face their illness, resulting in feelings of isolation and despair.

Throughout New Zealand we run regional Meet-Ups, yearly retreats and an online presence through our social media channels.

The Whole Lotta Life Foundation will remain unwavering in its mission to work for and with young adults and their families by offering support, resources, and a community that recognizes the profound effect of cancer on young people’s lives.

Welcome aboard and best of luck to your cause.

 

 

 

Welcome to Just Peoples

Another new Charity that has signed up this month.

Welcome to Just Peoples.

Just Peoples connects Kiwis who want to make a direct impact on poverty with grassroots community development organisations run by local people in Asia and Africa, that need around $1,000 to run their micro-projects. Kiwis choose the micro-project they feel passionate about and fundraise to fund the full project and make it happen. We then provide the funders with personalised feedback from our local partners once the project has been implemented so they can feel their impact.

Welcome aboard and best of luck to your cause.

Since 1995, Farida Sultana has been at the forefront of addressing domestic violence against ethnic women in New Zealand. Being a survivor of domestic violence herself, her vision was to create a safe space for ethnic women seeking support and shelter outside an abusive relationship. In 1995, she founded the Shakti Asian Women’s Support Group Trust with 7 other ethnic immigrant women, in Auckland. Spurred by the needs of ethnic women and families within the Asian, African and Middle Eastern communities of New Zealand, the Support Group expanded nationally and was reconstituted as Shakti Community Council Inc.
