This time last year, our country was in lockdown. And many New Zealanders found themselves in dire circumstances.

But many other New Zealanders came to their rescue—and you’re one of those people.

A year can make a big difference in the lives of those in need. With your support, we are able to wrap an array of services around them. Your donation has the ability to change lives.

Whilst this year the virus seems under control, the devastating social and financial effects are still with us.

There are New Zealanders who are still struggling. Please open your heart and help make a difference—by making a donation.

A Note From our PR Director

You may have recently received our Red Shield Appeal letter. Unfortunately, due to human error, a prepaid reply envelope was not included with this mailing.

As Kiwis in need are relying on your donations, we have rectified this situation by sending a reply envelope to those who recieved this mailing, so that you may send us a donation if you wish. The Salvation Army has not incurred any additional cost for sending you this reply envelope.

If you would like to send us a donation in the meantime, you can use any plain no window envelope and write on the front the following:

FreePost 3100

The Salvation Army

PO Box 27001

Marion Square

Wellington 6141

Your envelope can then go into any post box, without the need for a stamp. 

We are sorry for this error, and hope that you will still give, so that New Zealanders in dire circumstances have the opportunity to see what a difference a year can make.
