50+ ideas for giving to kids

Housing quality and affordability are big issues facing New Zealanders, and are particularly critical for children in poverty. Some low income families pay more than half their income on rent. Many cannot afford to heat their homes which contributes to dampness and mould. Poor quality, unsafe housing and over-crowding are causes of injuries and many health issues for children. These ideas aim to make homes healthier and safer for children.
