50+ ideas for giving to kids

Children living in the poorest areas are less likely to be able to take part in activities (such as sports clubs, kohanga reo, community centres) because of the limited resources in the community. Yet volunteer-based, local organisations with strong roots in their communities provide direct support to families and children. These ideas include ways you could advocate for the needs of children in their communities, support local organisations to do even more, and invest in communities so children have the option to take part.
