4good Charity for October 2017……..

Thanks to all who voted for the charity to support in October 2017.

The NZ charity with the most votes from the 4good community in October is………  

Catwalk Spinal Cord Injury Trust

Imagine A World Free Of Paralysis Caused By Spinal Cord Injury.

We fund research that aims to fix paralysis following spinal cord injury. CatWalk is dedicated to supporting world-class research and innovation. Our goal is simple, to get people out of wheelchairs and back onto their feet.

The CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Research Trust was founded in 2005 by Catriona Williams MNZM, formerly one of New Zealand’s leading international equestrian riders. Following a riding accident in 2002, she is now C6/C7 tetraplegic and confined to a wheelchair. Initially, a group of friends planned to fundraise for Williams herself – but a bigger picture quickly became clear. A cure for paralysis was Williams’ dream – and so CatWalk was born. We believe in supporting researchers in the very realistic bid for a cure for spinal cord injuries.

Catrionas’ illustrious equestrian career saw her reach the pinnacle of the show jumping and three-day event world. She represented New Zealand on the international stage at Badminton and the Open European Championships with the key target being the 2004 Athens Olympics.

Since that life changing moment in 2002, Catriona has completed the New York City Marathon and climbed to Everest Base Camp on a handcycle, was a finalist in the 2014 KiwiBank New Zealander of the Year, recognised in the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Honours list as a Member of the New Zealand order of Merit and most recently was the Community and Not for Profit sector winner at the NZ Women of Influence Awards.

Our key objectives are:

  • Support the scientific opinion that a cure for SCI can be found.
  • Promote and generate funding for research into a cure for paralysis.
  • Identify and assist in medical research and development into techniques designed for the
  • regeneration of the effects of spinal cord injuries.
  • Monitor the research progress of all scientists funded by the Trust.
  • Provide targeted assistance to organisations working on projects that promote the purpose of the Trust.
  • Foster cooperation between all disciplines engaged in central nervous system research, regeneration and direct relief.
  • Disseminate information about research into SCI.
  • Cooperate with international efforts in this field.

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.
