How it works

How it works

Go green this October and you’ll be raising money for the Cerebral Palsy Society – the only charity in New Zealand dedicated to helping people living with Cerebral Palsy Hōkai Nukurangi reach their highest potential and have more independence, freedom and choice.
The funds you raise will help provide vital funding, care, support, research and advocacy for Kiwis, young and old, living with Cerebral PalsyHōkai Nukurangi, and their family and whānau.
All you have to do is go green and make a donation or ask for donations. Simply head on over to our Givealittle page to donate. 

Taking part in Be Green & Be Seen is easy


Decide HOW you are going to go green

You could sign up for #beACTIVE and set a physical challenge that works for you. You could roll, ride, run or row.

Set up a fundraising page and then ask your family and whānau, friends, colleagues and neighbours to support you by donating to your page. Be sure to share your fundraising page far and wide by social media and email so that everyone knows what you are up to, and has a chance to support you. This challenge is perfect for individuals, teams of friends or family, schools and workplaces. 

If getting active isn’t your thing, you could:

  • Host a workplace green morning tea – think spirulina smoothies and green cupcakes!
  • Have a ‘wear green’ casual Friday or mufti day, at school or work, or dress up as your favourite green movie character
  • Hold a green quiz with your friends or colleagues
  • Colour your hair green (temporary products recommended!)
  • Host a green fashion show where people can vote for their favourite outfit
  • Create green-themed art and host an auction or raffle to sell it and raise funds
  • Run a face-painting competition for children
  • Raffle off a jar of green lollies or a hamper of green-themed goodies
  • Decorate your office or letterbox green.

There are plenty of green ideas out there – we’d love to hear yours! 


Decide WHEN you are going to go green

The official Be Green & Be Seen day is October 6, to coincide with World Cerebral Palsy Day.
But we’re going to be celebrating Be Green & Be Seen – Kia kākāriki, kia kitea throughout the month of October.
So feel free to go green and #beACTIVE on any day that suits you – heck, why not join us and go green for the entire month?

If October doesn’t work for you – no worries. You can do your green-thing whenever it suits you! 

You can use these awesome Be Green & Be Seen resources to help promote your green event. 


Time to donate

It’s super easy to donate to Be Green & Be Seen – Kia kākāriki, kia kitea.
