What is it?
We need you to help us to Help Our Kids. The Herald is running a major campaign to try and raise at least $150,000 for our national childrenâ€™s hospital, Starship. Each year, more than 9000 Kiwi kids from right throughout the country are treated in Starshipâ€™s theatres. Now itâ€™s our turn to help the hospital and staff that Help Our Kids.
The Help Our Kids fundraising campaign for Starship's operating theatres has passed the $100,000 mark.
This afternoon's update on the Herald, and Starship Foundation campaign shows it has raised $103,526 - more than two-thirds of the way to the target of $150,000.
The campaign is to help raise money for equipment in the new theatre being built at the Auckland-based Starship, New Zealand's national children's hospital, and for four other theatres that are being refurbished.
Last week actress and Starship foundation board member Lucy Lawless tweeted her appreciation when the total passed the halfway mark: "Kiwis are amazing! We are 1/2way to our $150,000 total to #HelpOurKids with "@captainstarship: and @nzherald THANK-YOU!!!"
