New Zealand has had a rough 2011 – with the heart breaking February 22 earthquake which took 181 innocent lives, and the news this year that New Zealand now has over 200,000 children living below the poverty line.
WeatherWatch.co.nz will this year donate $1000 to one of these charities – and we’d like you to help us decide which one.
Here are the two charities we’ve decided on:
Please vote below – the charity with the most votes will receive $1000 from WeatherWatch.co.nz – our small way of supporting New Zealanders who are most in need this Christmas.
We know it’s financially tough out there for many New Zealanders – but if you can, we’d encourage you to donate too, to either worthy charity. Below are the links for both charities and details on how you can donate.

You guys never cease to amaze me with all that you do. Your ethos, your care and concern – the knowledge you share – the sense of community that you create for what has really become this year a little Weatherwatch family online here. Your donation is awesome and your humanitarian spirit amazing. Well done!

What a worthy thing you are doing to donate money to a charity, esp at this time of the year. I would like to make a suggestion if I may, if you do this again, could I please nominate Assistance Dogs NZ to be one of the very worthy charities to be donated to? They are like guide dogs, but ADNZ dogs work with a wider range of disabilities and are trying to provide kids with these wonderul and needed service dogs. They need donations desperately and are very worthy. Passionate about kids and service dogs and wanting to improve disabled kids lives (from medical alarm barking, mobility, autism and other behavioural and neurological issues and including sight issues as well. I have voted, and again, it is a wonderful thing you are doing. Merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday period and new year. 🙂

What a great idea. Fantastic that dogs can be trained to assist so many people in need to live an independent life.

Wow! Can’t choose between these two charities both do great work and both deserve the money….
Good on you WeatherWatch!
