Background

As you may be aware, our annual Bike-a-thon was due to be held on Wednesday 8th April.  As we were in the middle of a nation-wide lockdown this event did obvioulsy not go ahead, but we are happy to announce that we have a rescheduled date!  The Bike-a-thon will now be held on Tuesday 30th June. This is a fun day for the students, who complete laps around the school bike course, in order to raise money for the school.

We understand that the last few months may not have been easy on a lot of families financially and otherwise.  Any donation is appreciated and will assist us in continuing towards the fundraising efforts for our school.

How will this fundraiser work?

This year we have partnered with New Zealand based online fundraising company Raise It.  Raise It specialise in working with New Zealand schools to maximise their fundraising efforts.  Collecting sponsorship online makes it super easy for everyone – no more door knocking, your child can collect more donations from further afield (e.g. friends and family living overseas, work colleagues etc) and no need to worry about handling all that cash and bringing it into school!

How do I sign my child up to fundraise online?

Each child can sign up for their very own web page to send out to collect online sponsorship.   The first 50 students to sign up will receive 100 houseplants, a chocolate bar and a Choice Hotels cap!

 

Just go to our Wainui School Fundraising Hub page at:

https://wainui.raiseit.co.nz/hub

  • You will find the REGISTER link to set up their account on this page
  • You will need to choose your child’s classroom as their fundraising team
  • If you need any help email help@raiseit.co.nz for direct assistance
  • All student totals update in real time and your donors can leave you messages of encouragement
  • The online Fundraising Hub website can be viewed to see the top classes and individuals at any time

What do we do with cash donations?

We understand not everyone can donate online so we have cash sponsorship forms available for collection at the school office. As we don’t want these children to miss out on including these amounts in their Online totals we will enter these amounts against their online account. Note: this can take up to two business days once the school office notifies Raise It of the cash donation amount.

Alternatively, if you do not wish to set your child up with an online fundraising page, please just return the cash with a cash sponsorship form to the office and it will be loaded to your child’s class total.
