Thank you to everyone who supported Change Wars 2018.
Collectively we raised around $8000 (with donations still coming in)!!
The money raised will help in providing vital services to children dealing with mental health issues.
Your donation and support will truly make a change. Thank you.
Look out for Change Wars back in 2019!
What is Change wars?
Change Wars (previously Jeans Day) is Napier Family Centre’s annual appeal. Once a year we go to the public, groups and local business community to seek support for the important work we do supporting vulnerable children and families in our own backyard.
Through some friendly competition (with someone you just have to beat) we want organisations across Hawke’s Bay to help us raise money for children’s mental health – which, let’s face it, is seriously underfunded and yet absolutely essential children to become well adjusted, contributing members of our community.
How does it work?
You can register a business, workplace, school, team, group or even yourself, and for a bit of fun, find and opponent to go up against and raise as much as you can. Beat your opponent for bragging rights for the whole year!
We’ll support you and your fundraiser too! We can do shout outs on Facebook and in our communications to help promote your business and fundraisers. We’ll do as many as we can to really get Hawke’s Bay listening… so join us and let our community know it’s not OK for our children to be battling depression, anxiety and bullying. We can help them and we can put a stop self-harm and suicide!
Choose your battle:
You can choose any opponent you’d like or we can match you up with someone. Here are a few ideas if you fancy a bit of friendly competition:
Not so keen on competition but want to support the cause?
That’s ok too, just register yourself and let us know what you’d like to do to raise money and we’ll do a shout out on our Facebook page.
How can I raise money?
If you’re stuck for ideas on how your workplace/team/organisation can raise money, here are a few to get you started:

Why support children’s mental health?
So let’s get to the guts of it; children with mental health issues really do need more support. Think of it like first aid for a wound that could turn nasty…
OK, I’m in, what next?
Thank you as always to our amazing sponsors, we couldn’t do this without you!
