Voting is now open for 4goods June 2013 Charity and with your help the Malaghan Institute could be the chosen charity!
4good has over 300 supporters who each donate $4 a month, with the pooled funds for each month going to a different worthy cause. Last month over $1,200 was donated to the Hawkes Bay SPCA.
Please take a second to vote for the Malaghan Institute on the 4good Facebook page, or if you dont have a Facebook account you can place a comment on their blog article here and they will treat it as your vote (theyll add it to the tally at the end of the month).
All it takes is a click of a button and you can help us be the recipient charity for June. You can also help us spread the word by asking your friends and family to join you in voting Malaghan!
In June 2010 a Tauranga kid named Max was diagnosed with Cancer.
Fast forward 6 months and Maxs Dad and a group of mates decided that they wanted to do something awesome to pay forward the terrific support that Max received during his initial treatment at Starship Hospital.
In January 2011 the 4good charitable trust was formed and the scene was set. As a group, we were sick and tired of traditional fundraising methods where people gave based on guilt (picture malnourished African child) or because they couldnt cross the street to get away from the collector in time (we love the environment too but leave us alone!)
The concept was pretty simple. We wanted people to feel good about giving and we didnt want the dollar amount or having to choose a charity to get in the way.
