We have created two simple ways to give more joy and kindness - not more stuff:
- Give Good Gift Cards instead of traditional gifts, to enable others to make donations to charities they care about. (If you have a Good Gift Card to redeem, you can do that here).
- 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 you gifts.
We have 65 charities to choose from.
If everyone in New Zealand replaced one $10 gift with a donation to a good cause, that would be $50 million of goodness, heaps less packaging and wrapping going to landfill, less stress for gift buyers, and less clutter in our homes.
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.
