Big Brothers Big Sisters Fundraiser

big brothers.png

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Wellington leads a youth mentoring programme for young people aged 6 to 12 years old to enhance their quality of life by providing a mentor to those who have adverse childhood experiences. This helps to develop a relationship that leads to a positive, long-lasting impact in their lives. We give hope to young people and help them to identify their own potential and to build their confidence by creating one on one, long term, consistent relationships in mentoring. We currently have over 50 matches of a young person to their mentor in the Hutt Valley and Wellington areas.

 

When a new match of a young person to their mentor starts with us, we like to give them a gift of belonging and to ignite some ideas for how they can spend time with each other. Along with a bag, t shirt and drink bottle, we also provide them with a book such as the Edmonds Cookbook.  Our resources are low for the books, and we are seeking your help to fundraise to purchase more books for our new matches. 

 

We hope to raise $400 so we can purchase more books and other resources for our matches.

Thank you so much for your support!

Here's how you can help us:

Every purchase you make from Salt & Oil using our code will mean a donation to us of up to 35%.*

 

Salt & Oil is a family-owned business that makes small-batch bath soak and magnesium oils from natural, ethically-sourced ingredients. Their products are magnesium-based, which is great for relieving tired, sore muscles, improving sleep and easing feelings of anxiety and stress. They're suitable for all the family and make lovely and useful gifts. They also offer wellbeing and homeware items from other small NZ businesses.

What to do now:

1 - Head to the Shop, and choose your items. All gift sets and reduced items receive only 10% as they are already at reduced prices. Thank you for your understanding.

2 - In your cart promo code box you MUST add code BBBS to be counted towards the total. The total is calculated from products only; shipping costs are not included. There is free urban shipping for orders over $75. It can be an idea to collate orders with friends and neighbours etc to save on shipping.

3 - The fundraiser starts on Friday 28 June, and finishes on Friday 12 July.  

4 - If  you'd like to support this fundraiser further, please consider sharing this page with your friends and family on social media, by text or email etc so they can place their own order, no matter where they are in NZ. Every small order can help to make a big difference. 

​​

To give you an idea, if 10 of us buy 2 pouches and a magnesium oil each, and we each get two friends to buy the same, we'll have raised $550 to help support these young people. And have lots of happy, relaxed and calm people in our lives into the bargain!

*  Total sales up to $1000 earns us cashback at 20%. If we reach over $1001 this goes up to 35%! 

Remember to add code BBBS at checkout

PS - A quick bit about the products: 

Bath soaks are not just for granny! The NZ men’s rugby team players use the SO:Active blend to help with muscle recovery after matches. This is a great one to support the sporty people in your life.

“I regularly order the 'So Active' bath salts for my 14-year-old who doesn't like to do warm-down stretches after football training/games. Instead he has a good soak in the bath with these salts, and they work brilliantly to help relax his muscles. I occasionally use them too when I'm feeling sore & stiff and love them - they are our go-to product for sore muscles!”

If you don’t have a bath but would still like to show your support, why not try a Magnesium Oil spray? Choose from unscented or lavender, which is great for relaxing into sleep. Both oils are a great way to boost your magnesium levels. Simply spray onto your skin and rub it in. Great for easing your muscles after a workout or training session.

"This is how you’re going to get some sleep at night. Buy the magnesium spray with lavender. Spray it on the soles of your feet. Done. I’m getting the best sleep in years because of this exact thing."
