Foster Hope Pyjama Drive

Mike from Paraparaumu

Foster Hope are running their annual new pyjama drive leading up to winter. There are over 6,000 children in foster care in New Zealand many who arrive at their new placements with little or no belongings. The drive is asking for new summer or winter pyjamas (aged 0-18 years). Many of these children have never had a brand new pair of their very own and knowing that someone has shopped especially for them is a huge boost to their self-esteem.
Bayleys Kapiti at 19a Raumati Road, Raumati Beach are participating as a drop point until 26th June. If you can afford to purchase a new pair of pyjamas, these will be gratefully be received by one of these children. Anything we can do to help them feel loved and valued is a huge part of what we do.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.

Hello Everyone! I would be extremely grateful you could spare a couple of minutes to fill in my online survey

Glen from Paraparaumu

Hi There!

I would be extremely grateful you could spare a couple of minutes to fill in my online survey where I am looking for your views on plastic packaging and single-use bags in New Zealand supermarkets.

The questionnaire is completely anonymous and an important part of the research paper I need to complete my MBA.

You can complete it online at docs.google.com...

Thank you so much for your support, you are all fantastic!

Glen Olsen

PS: If you could also like this post that would be amazing!
