“She is quick to assist anyone in need, reaches out to help the poor.” - Proverbs 31:20
cbm New Zealand has just signed up to be part of the world’s single biggest global fundraising response to COVID-19. It’s called Now Share the ❤️.
Well over 100 of the world’s most vital and best-loved charities have joined forces in a spectacular show of radical collaboration and collective kindness and cbm New Zealand is fortunate to be part of it – and with your help, it may be something really big.
As you know, COVID-19 has created particular challenges for the vulnerable people we serve. The same is true for people across New Zealand and around the world. Whether they are disabled, homeless or victims of abuse. Whether they are young, old, or have mental or physical health conditions. However they are socially or economically disadvantaged, right now, people urgently need support during this unprecedented time.
Share the ❤️ is a worldwide response to these challenges. A small team of experts working from their homes have given their time for free to create a campaign to raise funds, support people urgently in need, and lift all our spirits.
In New Zealand, the charities taking part are cbm New Zealand, Barnardos, Shine, The Loft and Music Helps. Each charity will share equally in the funds raised. Charities around the world are doing the same.
If collectively, you, your loved ones, friends, and neighbours get involved, you will all be part of something genuinely ground-breaking. What’s more, together we can help bring our nation – and the world – together by spreading some much-needed love.
