Being a responsible company is not just about making profits and employing staff. It is also about ensuring our company gives back to the community and the country by supporting worthy goals and causes. Kiwiwebs and its team have a long tradition of supporting and here are a few of our more recent examples.
New Zealand Companion Animal Council
Kiwiwebs was very pleased to donate a new website to the NZCAC. Having worked with the Council for many years, Kiwiwebs felt it was a small token gesture to make, compared to the amazing work this organisation has achieved. Visit www.nzcac.org.nz.
Bason Botanic Gardens
Kiwiwebs is very proud to have created a site for this unique attraction. The gardens feature a variety of attractions that make it a jewel in the crown of Wanganui reserves. By providing a subsidised fully responsive and modern website it will allow the gardens to target even more people living in, and visiting, Wanganui to get them to visit. www.basonbotanicgardens.org.nz
Community Cat Coalition
Kiwiwebs is very proud to have donated a new site for the Auckland Community Cat Coalition. This dedicated group of cat carers provide an invaluable service to the stray cats of Aucjkland. Visit www.catcoalition.org.nz.
Tucker R THOMPSON SAILING TRUST
In January 2014, Kiwiwebs owner Nygllhuw decided to help the R. Tucker Thompson Sailing Trust by selling an historic telescope on TradeMe with a promise that 100% of the sale price would be donated to the trust. Surpassing expectations, the telescope sold for $4,610.
The donation was used to help fund a special voyage that was offered to students with limited ability to pay. The voyage was named the Puffin Voyage, after the name of the sail boat. 12 young people had the opportunity to experience a 7 day youth sailing voyage that they could not have afforded without the donation. We are very proud to have helped with this great cause.
Following the 2011 quake, Kiwiwebs and Animal Register Limited (both owned and managed by Nygllhuw from the Kiwiwebs offices), worked together to help Canterbury SPCA by providing a 24/7 tollfree 0800 lost pet helpline for both chipped and non-chipped pets. In 12 weeks over 25,000 phone calls and faxes were received, and over 800 adverts were placed. ARL also donated its time and share of 12,500 free registrations for Canterbury pet owners. The value of this support was over $80,000.
