We're giving thousands of New Zealanders the power to do good, with donations to causes they care about, instead of unnecessary gifts.
If every person in New Zealand replaced one $10 gift with a donation to a good cause, that would be $49 million of goodness (as well as less packaging and wrapping going to landfill, less stress for gift buyers and less clutter in our homes).
We have created two simple ways to give more joy - not more stuff:
- Create your own Good Gift Registry for a special event (e.g. a wedding, a child’s birthday, a milestone birthday) and ask friends to donate to a charity you choose, instead of buying gifts.
- Give Good Gift Cards instead of traditional gifts, to enable others to make donations to charities they care about.
The Good Registry was co-founded by three Wellingtonians who are all passionate about doing good things: Christine Langdon, Tracey Bridges and Sue McCabe. Christine is our Chief of Good (aka Chief Executive) and Tracey and Sue are directors.
Our Wider team includes Trustee Rebekah Swan, communications whizz Ainsley Harris, and a small army of generous volunteers and pro-bono partners.
Our core pro-bono partners include Deloitte for financial services, MageBinary for IT, Duncan Cotterill for legal, and the BizDojo for office space.
