Premier player Jake Goodger and his partner Molly have started an initiative called 'The Christmas Club'.
'The Christmas Club is on a mission to carefully create Christmas gift boxes, designed to empower, inspire and bring joy to kiwi kids in need this festive season. We've partnered with the legends at The Salvation Army Wellington to deliver them 200 boxes by the 17th December. Ambitious, we know! But honestly, even if one kid gets a Christmas box we will mark it down as a success in our books!
The boxes will be built purely on donations - product donations from companies and monetary donations collected on this page. Your monetary donations will be used to purchase products. Gift boxes will be designed to suit different age groups and genders.
Each box will contain items from six different categories. Each category is aimed to: fuel, educate, care for, keep fit, inspire and create fun for each child. Boxes will be comprised of non-perishable and safe products. The value of each box will be around $30.'

Every kiwi kid deserves a tu meke Christmas! With one in four kiwi kids living in poverty, we want to help. We want to lift the financial pressure on families this festive season by donating gift boxes to underprivileged kids in Wellington 🎁🎄 We’re aiming to deliver 200 boxes by the 15th December. While this is our preliminary goal, we’d love to blow it out of the water 💥 We need your help to achieve this. All gift boxes will be made up of product donations and gifts purchased with monetary donations from our Give a Little page (link in bio)🔝 If you know of any companies who may be keen to donate, drop us a DM 💌 SPREAD THE WORD & STAY TUNED ✨ Thanks! Mol & Jake
