Glam up & Give

“She is quick to assist anyone in need, reaches out to help the poor.” - Proverbs 31:20

‘Glam Up & Give’ is a global social media movement launched on Friday 8 May and since then a number of counties including the UK, Australia, New Zealand have joined with the USA, India, Asia and Europe set to follow.

COVID-19 has created particular challenges for vulnerable people around the world and the same is true for vulnerable people across New Zealand. Whether they’re disabled, homeless or victims of abuse. Whether they’re young, old, or have mental or physical health conditions. Right now, there is an urgently need to raise money for the people we support. But we also know that other organisations’ needs are just as pressing.

So, cbm NZ has joined with 10 well-known charities in New Zealand who are each working hard to support vulnerable people in lockdown. The charities taking part are The Loft, Barnardos New Zealand, cbm New Zealand, Child Fund New Zealand, Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand, Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand, Music Helps, Shine New Zealand, The Aunties and The Salvation Army New Zealand Trust Te Ope Whakaora. We’ll all share equally in the money we raise.

Collectively we have the potential to be part of something global and genuinely ground-breaking. What’s more, we can bring the nation together with a much-needed dose of GLAM!

Glam Up and Give

Glam Up & Give is about coming together,
spreading a little sparkle, and supporting
people in need. Whether it’s a one-off
shimmering selfie or a full-blown glamorous
party night in, all you need to do is follow these three easy steps.

1. Dress up

That special occasion outfit, those
stunning stilettoes or shiny shoes…
even your wedding dress or suit –
put on your party gear to
Glam Up & Give.

2. Share the love

Make a heart with your hands, take a selfie, and choose the friends and family you’re going to ask to glam up too. You’ll be one of the first to take part in a global fundraising phenomenon. But only if you act quickly and get your nomination chain going with as many people as you possibly can – family, neighbours, friends, old colleagues – we want to make this BIG!
