Over the past several months, we have been collaborating with Variety - the Children's Charity on a campaign about child poverty in New Zealand. That campaign was finally launched last night. It is called #DearNewZealand.
In a nutshell, we asked a group of Kiwi kids growing up in poverty to write a letter to New Zealand to share their stories, and to give New Zealanders an insight into what their lives are like. These incredible children and their families welcomed us into their lives and homes with one shared goal: they wanted to help others.

This is her story.
