EVENTS AT THE MAKERS
We are a community-conscious business and hold Christmas fundraising events as a way to feed back into the community. We choose organisations that reflect our own interests and passions as women in business, mothers, aunties, and as fortunate human beings.
If you would like to help us in any way with our fundraising and charitable efforts please get in touch. We're always looking for extra support from other businesses and empathetic individuals. We have had help in the past from musicians playing our events, breweries and wineries donating drinks, and donations of gift vouchers and other prizes from all sorts of organisations.
For Christmas 2018 we were proud to present our annual charity fundraiser, this year supporting Positive Women, an amazing charity doing amazing things for New Zealand women living with HIV/AIDS.
Our special events in Wellington and Christchurch saw lovely folks buying, supporting and enjoying bubbles and live music.
As we have done for our past Christmas events, we have donated 25% of the sale price of each piece of jewellery sold on the night. We also held a raffle with some incredible donated prizes and a Facebook auction of donated jewellery.
We love providing lots of ways for people to give!

For our Christmas 2017 fundraiser The Makers worked with Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Trust NZ.
Our very successful fundraising event was held on the evening of the 1st of December in-store, with live music, beautiful jewellery and delicious refreshments.
We also held Facebook auctions with pieces generously donated by our jewellery making community. 100% of the sale prices went directly to GRG.

In 2016 Foster Hope Charitable Trust was the focus of our efforts and a special charity event on the evening of Friday 2nd of December at our Wellington shop. With support from other local businesses, musicians and our friends we were able to raise over $1300 for Foster Hope.
Thank you you to all of you wonderful people involved in making these events happen!

For Christmas 2015 we chose Wellington Women's Refuge for our charity.
Women's Refuge helps women and children who are in difficult situations and always need extra money to aid them in this.
