FAQs

Who can set up fundraising pages?

Anyone is able to set up a fundraising page! Encourage your friends, or work colleagues to set up pages also.  

If for some reason I am unable to hold my morning tea - what should I do?

We would be grateful for a small donation to cover the costs of the items in the host pack, and the postage to send it out. If possible, please drop the box off to a local Whānau Āwhina Plunket clinic - or donate it to a local foodbank.

When can I hold my morning tea, and when is the last date I can register? 

You are able to host your morning tea anytime over the months of September and October (extended time due to the latest Covid-19 outbreak), and able to register right up until the last week of October.

When will my host pack be sent out? 

For those in Level 2, your host pack will be sent out to you from the 13th September (a later date as a result of the Covid 19 Delta outbreak). They will then be sent out regularly from that date, capturing any new registrations.

Auckland will be sent their host packs when they are in Level 2 - and we will keep you updated with when these will be sent.

Any concerns about when you might recieve your host pack – please email Raiseabundle@plunket.org.nz.

How can I win an extra $200 for my fundraising page?

In your host pack is a Dunk it for Plunket apron. Take a photo of the host, or someone at your morning tea wearing this - be as creative as you like! And then post this to the Dunk it for Plunket event page on Facebook. Each week, for the month of October, we will choose one host to have an additional $200 added to their fundraising effort.

What should I do if I receive cash donations at my morning tea?

The best option is to bank the cash donations against your own fundraising page - so bank the money into your own account, and then make a credit card payment to your own fundraising page for the amount banked. Alternatively if you would like to bank the amount directly into a plunket account - please email raiseabundle@plunket.org.nz.

What is the money raised going towards?

Whānau Āwhina Plunket offers a range of community services designed to empower people in their parenting and connect them to other local whānau or families. These services include car seat advice, our free voluntary home-visiting service Family Start, Health Worker and Kaiāwhina visits, lactation consultants, mental health support, parent groups, parenting education classes and playgroups.
