For some children in New Zealand, life is a daily struggle. Instead of embracing the carefree childhood they are entitled to, they’re followed by fear. At the end of a school day the home should be a place of comfort, not somewhere that’s dreaded because of what could happen to you and your siblings. Help us build the ‘Home of Hope’ and give care back to those that need it the most.
Cashmores is proud to be teaming up with Classic Builders to provide Homes of Hope a brand new, four-bedroom home. Homes of Hope provide foster care for children throughout the Bay of Plenty who have suffered significant neglect and abuse. Children aged 0-12 are provided a stable and nurturing environment and siblings are kept together. Therapeutic care is provided to restore their mental, physical, and emotional health while building self-worth. Homes of Hope gives children a new outlook on life.
Right now the new ‘Home of Hope’ is well underway. Resource consents are complete, the land has been blessed, and the diggers are now busy doing their thing. Needless to say, Homes of Hope are beyond excited (and grateful).
While Classic Builders will kindly build the Home of Hope, Cashmores is on a mission to help raise the $210,000 needed for it to happen. Cashmores & Farmer Autovillage – another business dedicated to this worthy cause are currently organizing a black-tie charity auction event for the new year to help raise some of these funds. If you would like to contribute to this worthy cause there’s a number of ways you can get involved:
· Donate to the Give a Little Page
· Follow the Homes of Hope Facebook page and share with your friends.
· Offer your services or products – there’s a lot involved with building a house and once it’s complete it’s also going to need furniture, food, books, toys and more.
· Offer auction items for the black-tie charity auction event.
This is an opportunity to be part of something big. Your generosity will go towards literally putting a roof over a child’s head so they can sleep easy and smile again. Read more about Homes of Hope here and feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to get involved.
