There is a growing concern worldwide for the many millions of desperate families living in extreme poverty in developing lands, the tens of millions of refugees that urgently need help and the increasing awareness of the need to combat climate change.
There are many thousands of charities and worldwide movements, working hard to try and make things better in these areas - the largest of these has 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by world leaders in September 2015 - http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/
The huge effort put forth by those working on-the-ground in developing lands is indeed heart-warming and commendable. They have many experienced teams and highly efficient and effective systems in place - but they need more funding. Our charity main role is to serve as a funder - donating funds so these organisations to help them continue in their work. Our work will see us donating significant funds toward helping desperate and vulnerable families who live in extreme poverty. We will help elevate these families to positions that enable them to live happier, healthier, more dignified and fulfilling lives.
We will also be providing funding to organisations working on ‘sustainable health of the planet’ projects. Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow -http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/climatechange/
The funding we’ll provide will come from the operation of a unique charity/social enterprise fundraising strategy, called the Global Loyalty-Rewards Fundraiser - to help our ‘Planet & People’ - operated by the social enterprise arm of the strategy - AIMS Supporter Services.
While our charity operates in the traditional sense where we gratefully accept donations and receive grants - there is clearly a need for other funding sources. This is where the Global Loyalty-Rewards Fundraiser comes in. The great thing about this program is that it has been specifically designed to bring in significant funds, without it being a financial burden on families and businesses. In fact, families and businesses will be able to receive ‘loyalty’ financial rewards for participating in the program.

Our charity was selected as a finalist in the Community Innovation category of the 2016 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards - where our entry presented the loyalty fundraising program. Known then as the New Zealand Network Charitable Trust, with the fundraising program called the ‘Network Member with Rewards’ Fundraising Program, our charitable works were carried out in New Zealand only. Now working globally the program has fittingly been renamed the Global Loyalty-Rewards Fundraiser - to help our ‘Planet & People’ http://sustainable.org.nz/awards/2016-nzi-sustainable-business-network-awards-winners-2016/
