Good Deeds Challenge 2022

We are excited to be running a peer-to-peer Good Deeds Challenge to raise funds for our organisation.
Sign up today and start sharing your journey with supporters. Tasks are to be completed each day from Saturday 9 July to Sunday 24 July. You will need to choose 16 good deed tasks from a list of 40 activities - from giving someone a happy note to introducing yourself to a neighbour to getting in touch with an old friend. We offer a range of tasks so you can choose what suits you best. Everyone’s challenge will look a little different so it can be custom made to suit everyone.
The fundraiser runs through our online platform with additional support through social media. Holding it during the school holidays makes it an excellent challenge for the whole family to get involved. We have some exciting spot prizes to share throughout the challenge too! Our thanks to Synergy Vitality Spa, Motion Entertainment and New World Gate Pa for donating our prizes. 
You can find a list of the 40 tasks on our Good Deeds Challenge website at www.griefsupport.org.nz/challenge2022.
