We are giving you a quick update on our April causes – now that April 2017 has come to an end, we would like to again say thank you to our sponsors and also give you more information on the projects we helped in April 2017.
In April 2017 we decided that the topic “environment” would be our main focus for the month of April – and with a new challenge on our hands it was an interesting month to be a part of – at times we had no idea what community environmental projects could benefit from, but we soon learned of three very deserving projects that had us jumping for joy.
We were so excited to learn about The Common Unity Project Aotearoa based in Wellington, New Zealand. If you read the name again, you will realize it spells out the community project how amazing is that right? Not only the name was an interesting factor, but what they stand for was even more impressive!! They live in a small urban community and one day decided they wanted to get the children and the community involved with growing, harvesting and cooking food! But they needed a space to do this in so they decided to turn a section of an old football field at Epuni School Wellington into a vegetable garden.
So they dug it all up and planted lots of flowers and edible vegetables, they built a fence around it and painted certain areas and then they decided to register as an official community project and non profit! From then on the children of Epuni School and the people of the community started attending the community gardening sessions on how to plant, what to plant and even the cooking classes were a hit.
They rely completely on donations to keep the project running and we are so enthusiastic to say we were able to also help this project by sending around 50 vegetable seeds for this cause to use.
We would like to say Thank You to The Common Unity Project, Wellington, New Zealand for allowing us to share and donate to your wonderful cause in April 2017 – If you would like to find out more about The Common Unity Project or you would like to help simply follow this link: http://www.commonunityproject.org.nz/
Now you are thinking, wow what a lovely cause, how wonderful is that let’s have a look at the link and have a look, but wait, there’s more – yes, we helped not one, not two, but three environmental causes in April that’s a quarter years work for us and we absolutely love that we had the opportunity to do this, and now you’re thinking I better keep reading so I can find out about the next cause – yes well here it is and we hope you enjoy it!
The next environmental project we helped in April 2017 were a gardening project run by Whariki Mental Health House based in Auckland, New Zealand every term they run a gardening course for those recovering from the real life struggles of Mental Health and it is a wonderful program but it came to our attention that they had less than enough supplies to keep this program going and so we ran to the rescue (not literally) and decided to donate over 50 vegetable seeds for this wonderful program! Because we just could not bear to let them miss out – they have a wonderful section around the house. Which they have turned into such a delightful vegetable and flower garden, not only that, but they have also recycled by turning empty soda cans and bottles into plant features and plant holders you are sometimes also able to take a tour in which the guests who have taken part in the program show you how planting and the environment has helped their recovery through Mental Health.
What a wonderful cause to be a part of, we would like to say Thank You to Whariki Mental Health House in Papatoetoe, Auckland, New Zealand for allowing us to share and allowing us to be a part of your program in April 2017.

So now you have cried your eyes out over such a beautiful project we have another one for you to enjoy and indulge in and enjoy – in April 2017 we also went International and brought 10 trees to be planted in India and 5 trees to be planted in Tanzania, Africa – the professional painters are able to choose the most suitable time and most suitable trees to plant through Retree – they also are able to at times provide trees for poverty stricken countries who are in need of food, they are able to plant trees that reduce pollution and the best part is you can choose to buy tree’s in over 30 Countries worldwide and you are kept up to date on when and where your trees are planted isn’t that absolutely wonderful? Why not head over to retire and buy trees now in your choice of country to help us save our earth and protect our environment.
We would like to say thank you to retiring for allowing us to share and be a part of your wonderful cause, if you would like to learn more about Retree and see how you can help simply follow this link: https://retree.com/
