Give an hour of your time to the local community on or before ANZAC Day through the Serve for New Zealand campaign. The campaign helps to further share the ideas of the RSA and Student Volunteer Army (SVA).
Serve for New Zealand was created as a gift to the RSA to commemorate their 100th birthday and as a way for Kiwis to celebrate the legacy of service. Serve for New Zealand: Anzac Day was run as a pilot project in 2016 and the inaugural event saw over 6,600 hours pledged.
Serve for New Zealand: Anzac Day is designed to encourage Kiwis to offer an hour of their time in their local communities on a day of national significance. Serve for New Zealand: Anzac Day 2017 aims to be even bigger and better, to create the greatest volunteering impact we can across the country.
Help create the greatest movement possible
You may be working on a current project you’ve organised, or why not create a new project and pledge to Serve for New Zealand Anzac Day. Think about what groups need help in your community – the local school, childcare centre, Plunket, the local park, etc. and go from there.
Encourage your volunteers to show they’ve supported you AND Serve for New Zealand, by pledging their time on the website.
If organising a project sounds too hard, simply go to the website and pledge an hour of your time to an already listed project – it’s that easy.
Serve for New Zealand: Anzac Day 2017 is a partnership between The UC Student Volunteer Army (SVA), the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services’ Association Inc. (RSA) and the University of Canterbury (UC) and is kindly supported by SEEK Volunteer.
