Fundraising with others is a great way to stay motivated and reach your goal. The simplest way to fundraise as part of a team is for you and your friends to create your own individual fundraising pages. Then you can create a team page and invite your friends to join your team. If a team already exists, you can find and join the team from your fundraising page in My World Vision or our app. Download our new app now from Google Play or Apple Store

Get started now by creating your own individual page and your team page.
From your fundraising page in My World Vision or World Vision New Zealand app (download now from Google Play or Apple Store) you can email your contacts to ask them to support you and your cause. Inspire others to help you change the world by sharing your fundraising page on social media. The more you spread the word, the more you’ll raise and the more children you’ll help to reach.
Where children are vulnerable to poverty, violence, exploitation and life-threatening circumstances, World Vision is there. That’s where the funds you raise go. Where they are most needed. 

Your fundraising dollars help provide life-saving aid in emergencies and build sustainable, thriving communities. World Vision reaches 1 new person every 10 seconds with clean water, provides millions of children with nutritious food, healthcare and education, and protects children wherever they are vulnerable, all with your support. 

Last year, 82.7 per cent of all the money World Vision New Zealand received went to our development work overseas. For a detailed breakdown please read our Annual Report.
Every fundraising page has an end date of three months from when you start so that your hard work can start transforming the lives of children around the world as soon as possible. You can edit your end date when you create your fundraising page or afterwards in My World Vision or our app (download now from Google Play or Apple Store).

Once your fundraising has reached its end date, your page will no longer accept donations. Your page will still exist, so you have a record of the difference you have made.
