FROM THE FOUNDER

In 2015 whilst walking out of a friend’s accounting business, I noticed one of his offices stacked high with computers, desks, chairs and other unwanted goods. I asked him what he was going to doing with it all. His answer went something like, “Too hard, not enough me, think about it later…” That struck a chord with me; how many times during my corporate career did I see similar goods simply thrown away? How many times did I leave an unwanted phone, laptop or tablet lying in a drawer?

Thanks to my years of social sector experience, I saw those redundant goods through fresh eyes; they were no longer a waste of space, rather a pathway to bringing about social change in communities throughout New Zealand.

As you learn more about our heart, I hope you will be encouraged to pledge your support to All Heart NZ.
