Cheryl Spain, The Gift Trust’s Executive Director, had an inspiring day out of the office to visit Wairio wetland in the Wairarapa, where we have made a donation on behalf of donors recently.
The Gift Trust and some of our donors partnered with local Wellington businesses to help raise funds at an event for the Wellington City Mission. Gift Trust donors generously contributed over $11,000 and together we raised $72,927!
If your heart stops beating, a 10 minute wait for an ambulance might be too long. Every minute without CPR reduces a victim’s chance of survival by 10 percent. A donation from a Gift Trust donor has launched a new smartphone app to link trained nearby first aiders to people who are having a cardiac arrest.
