Happy NZ Day.

From the NZ Day Facebook page:
NZ DAY 07.12.13
The very first ever NZ DAY!

#itsagooddayto …celebrate our Kiwi spirit.

Today (07.12.13) we are bringing Kiwis together to do some good and to be the very best we can be for ourselves, each other, our communities and our environment.

It’s the Kiwi way. It’s what we do.

And we are having a load of fun while we’re doing it!

We are creating history today and in a few years we can look back and proudly say we were right here at the very beginning.

Get behind it and get involved. . .

And

HAPPY NZ DAY!

THANK YOU so much for being passionate Kiwis and getting behind it and getting involved. We are creating history today and in a few years we can look back and proudly say we were right here at the very beginning.

Have an awesome celebration and please take some pics, tag NZ Day, and use the hashtags #nzday and #itsagooddayto.

We hope you have a thoroughly enjoyable day with your friends, whanau and communities.

NZ Day – let’s celebrate

18/10/2013

We ought to have a proper celebration as Australia and many other countries do on their national days.

This statement is often made and now someone’s acting on it:

NZ Day is being celebrated on Saturday December 7th:

NZ Day.
It’s a good day to…do good.

New Zealand is pretty damn great. NZ Day can help make it even better. It gives all us Kiwis the chance to roll-up our sleeves and do some good, while celebrating just how bloody lucky we are.

Simply search for events to join in your area and on Saturday 07.12.13 get involved. You can also share your ideas on how to make it a good day and then create your own personal events based on those ideas.

If you know of a cause or group that would be interested in creating a public event then please tell us about them.

What’s it about?

NZ DAY IS ABOUT BRINGING COMMUNITIES TOGETHER TO
DEMONSTRATE & CELEBRATE WHO WE ARE.

New Zealand could really benefit from appreciating and projecting our shared values. As we witness more and more Kiwis yearning for ways to significantly and positively contribute, and to voice through action what is important to them.

TOGETHER WE CAN CREATE A UNIFIED CELEBRATION OF WHO WE ARE AS KIWIS BY FOCUSING ON OUR GALVANISING SPIRIT OF GENEROSITY.

NZ Day offers the awesome opportunity to demonstrate this spirit by encouraging and supporting Kiwis to do good acts in their communities. It’s a day on which we can all be the very best we can be for ourselves, each other and our environment.

NZ DAY IS PLANNED FOR THE FIRST SATURDAY IN DECEMBER, 07.12.13.
IT’S A GOOD DAY TO… DO GOOD.

SO, WHAT EXACTLY DO KIWIS DO ON NZ DAY?

It is an open opportunity to do some good for something that is important to you. The only prescribed element is the “doing of good”, the rest is up to each individual. Some Kiwis might elect to do a beach clean-up, others might help plant a community garden or host a BBQ for their neighbours.

The New Zealand Day Trust is focused on coordinating, profiling and promoting events and activities that are charitable, of benefit to a community, or benefit other existing charitable/community groups.

You can also share your own ideas and initiatives on how to make it a good day on the IDEAS page.

If you know of a cause or group that would be interested in creating a public event then please tell us about them.

add a group LET’S MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Many hands make light work and the success of NZ Day will be based on the collective effort of many. We are confident we can help inspire a great day, but we need other passionate Kiwis to get behind it and to get involved.

They’ve got a Facebook page where you can get a badge like this:nz day badge

(It comes in a variety of colours but I have a penchant for blue).
