Every parent struggles with sleepless nights, it's not an easy journey. But when there are added complications it amplifies all the usual new parent challenges and adds a lot of stress to an otherwise joyful time.
At GoGenerosity we believe that by many of us being generous in small amounts often can make a big difference when people in our community need us most. Recently parents of a 6 month old baby with a rare metabolic disorder have been struggling with sleepless nights and a full-on schedule of feeding and specialist visits. Their situation has meant they need to feed every 3 hours otherwise they risk the little one going into a coma, or worse. You can only imagine the stress and anxiety that comes with this situation. These new parents were beyond thankful when offered a free restaurant quality meal through The Atrium Cafe's Koha Dinner.

The Atrium Cafe, based in Otumoetai, Tauranga have been putting on a monthly community meal called the Koha Dinner. They're able to put on this life giving event through the generosity of Victor and The Atrium team and thanks to their customers paying-it forward. Their partnership with GoGenerosity allows their customers to pay-it-forward at point of sale and then the Atrium team turn that generosity into food for local people in need and distribute those meals through things like this Koha Dinner.
