We are blown away by the generosity of The kids' Store and all their customers, who together, through giving small amount often, were able to clothe 15 kids with $970 worth of premium brand kids clothing! Sam and the team at The Kids' Store, Mount Maunganui, have gone above and beyond with their generosity by giving these clothes to the mums and bubs in need at COST PRICE and really multiplying their impact.

How do they decide who gets the clothes? They've partnered with Tauranga Women's Refuge so the clothing can go to these broken families who are really struggling through the season they are in. Having good quality clothing for their kids really free's these mums up to focus on healing, providing and what the next season holds for them.

If you're new to our community and don't quite understand how that all works, GoGenerosity gives businesses a way for their customers to pay-it-forward to produce goods (in this case, kids clothing) or services for their favourite local charities, amplifying the great work charities are doing in our communities. To unlock your generosity, check out our partner directory to see if you can pay-it-forward at your local.

The Kid’s Store is an amazing example of how a business who provides products can have a huge impact. By unlocking the generosity of their customers, and partnering with a GoGenerosity partner like Tauranga Women’s Refuge, together, The Kid’s Store customers and team were able to massively impact the lives of mums and their kids who are in a stressful time fo life.

Hazel, the manager at Tauranga Women's Refuge told us, “The thing we love about GoGenerosity is that it allows people to pay-it-forward in many ways. This helps us get access to  restaurant quality meals and brand new clothing, which really gives the women and children in our community a sense of dignity in such a tough season.”
