12 Rays of Christmas

Cause page image GivealittleThe 12 Rays of Christmas is a KCE-led Christmas initiative for the whole King Country community to get behind this November and December.

It’s designed to help those organisations who are focused on helping others at this time of year.

We’re spreading a special $6000 Christmas donation across 12 carefully-selected organisations within the areas we operate this Christmas as a way of saying ‘thank you’ for their social contribution within our community.

Between 1 and 12 December our KCE Trees of Light (in Te Kuiti, Otorohanga and Taumarunui) will shine in recognition of these great groups.

Here’s your part. We’re challenging you – the generous King Country community – to join in the 12 Rays of Christmas by fundraising and/or making your own donations between now and 12 December. 

As an incentive to rally together for your preferred cause, KCE promises to match dollar-for-dollar the organisation with the highest community donations at the end of 12 December, up to the value of $6000. So, get your friends and family to fundraise and/or donate too!

Get involved

  • Choose one of the 12 causes (listed below) to get alongside. Consider hosting a small 12 Rays of Christmas fundraiser for them before the donation deadline of 12 December. It might be a cake stall or a donation bucket at work – it’s really up to you! Get organising today…

Donate

  • Donate the money from your fundraiser (or simply make a personal donation) to your preferred cause via the individual Givealittle pages listed below. Remember, donations are open until 12 December only.
