A little bit of context
Jane wants this Christmas to be special for her two young children. But even putting food on the table, let alone buying presents, is going to be a real struggle this year. (Click 'play button' on the 'X' to see a short video clip.)
But there’s a problem
Jane's family is one of hundreds in Christchurch that is filled with dread about Christmas. She just can't see how she can afford it.
How do we know? Kingdom Resources provides budgeting support to people across Christchurch, including Rangiora, Kaiapoi, Leeston, Lincoln, Leeston and Burnham. This year, our 29th year of operation, we've helped record numbers of people in need. One budget advisor said that she'd never seen such financial hardship before, and she's had over 10 years of experience.
Here’s what we’re doing about it
To help make it a bit easier and less stressful, Kingdom Resources is joining with Christmas Box to give 50+ families in need a real helping hand, at a time when it's really needed.
You can join us
Just $30 (plus small processing fee) will give a family a special Christmas Box, worth so much more, thanks to the generous sponsorship of a number of different businesses and donations. While $30 is the cost for a Christmas box, ALL DONATIONS, are welcome and will help to make a difference.
