Together we want to raise awareness of maternal mental health, get fit and have fun while raising needed funds for Mums4Mums.
By supporting Mums4Mums you are supporting local mums/families with babies and providing for better outcomes. Each donation helps us to keep going with this crucial and important mahi in our community. Together we are making our community stronger! Aroha in Action.
Our goal is to raise $50,000 to support Mums4Mums and their 3-chapter locations (Tauranga, Whakatane & Rotorua)
New Zealand has the highest suicide rates in the OECD countries and it's 7x higher than the UK for pregnant and post birth mums. A staggering statistic for a small country. Maternal Mental Health is the BIG elephant in the room and Mums4Mums is on the front line of this crisis ensuring mums and pēpi are well supported for best possible outcomes. We need your support so we can keep doing our crucial and important mahi.
Funds raised will be used to cover our general operational expenses, such as salaries, travel costs, insurance, rent, breast pump rentals, capsule rentals, printing of brochures, training costs, etc.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Charity Footprints?
Charity Footprints is a social enterprise that connects fitness and charitable giving. We empower people just like you, to get fit & give back.
Our Virtual Races allow non-profits to challenge their patrons to run, walk or ride and raise funds just as they would in a fundraising walkathon. The best part - charities save over 45% in event and logistical costs. So, the dollars that you pay to register or fundraise, go farther.
What is the campaign registration fee?
Campaign registration fee is the amount that you'll need to pay to enroll in this virtual race. This fee (less transaction charges) will go to the non-profit running this campaign as a donation.
The registration fee along with the funds raised through your individual fundraising page will enable the non-profit to fund various programs and pursue their organization's mission.
How can I create my fundraising page?
Well, you wouldn't have to create a separate fundraising page. Once you register for this campaign, we'll give you the link to your fundraising page.
I am an international donor (non-US), what are my donation charges and tax-deductibility?
All donations are made in US dollars, so the donations may be levied an exchange rate fee via your bank. Donors will want to connect with their bank to determine exactly what that fee may be. Additionally, international donors will need to reach out to a tax professional to discuss if and how tax deductibility will apply to their donation.
Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?
The short answer is - everyone. The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to.
That said, there are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.
Last, if your employer has a gift matching program, check with the human resources department to support your favorite cause as well.
