Women's Refuge NZ
Christmas is supposed to be a happy time but for some it is filled with sadness...
This Christmas we are lending a helping hand to Women's Refuge NZ again. For the past five years, with the support of our family, friends and loyal customers TORY & KO. have raised over 200 brand-new gifts for all the children who find themselves in a Refuge shelter during Xmas.
To provide a Xmas gift for every child at a Women’s Refuge shelter this year. Bring in a new child's present to our store to put under our tree.
There are over 250 women and children on any one night in the 44 Refuges across New Zealand over the Christmas period. We feel strongly about giving back to the community and when we heard of the situation over Christmas for a lot of mothers and children we decided to help make a difference.
Every Christmas TORY & KO. ask customers, family and friends to donate a brand new gift to be given to children who find themselves in a shelter during Christmas.
The past five years customers and friends have continued to help TORY & KO. make Christmas a little brighter for the children and their mothers who need the safety of a Refuge House around New Zealand.
