Update: Thanks to all of your support, we hit our $50,000 goal. From the bottom of our hearts, thanks to everyone that took the time to vote for us and make a change for New Zealand youth.
For every vote you make for us on The Trusts’ website, we get $5. You can vote once a day, every day until the end of April. The more votes, the more funding.

How does it work?
Zeal has been selected by The Trusts to take part in their Million Dollar Mission - where West Auckland community groups gather votes to receive a grant. With the money we raise, we can continue to fund our Street Youth Work and creative programmes, which have a massive impact on our community.
What is Street Youth Work?
Zeal teams up with three other organisations in West Auckland to take to the streets and connect with the young people of our community. One of our main street youth workers actually used to live on the streets himself!
"The heart of our Street Youth Work programme is to reach those that are the most vulnerable," says Matt Grey, Zeal's General Manager.
"We try to get through to those who wouldn't typically be able to access services such as ours. Sometimes the youth most in need steer away from authority. But this way, we are able to meet and connect with them in their own environment."

The Trusts is a socially responsible business that reinvests its profits back into the West Auckland community. To find out more about what they do, visit their website here.
We will be running competitions over on our Facebook and Instagram for the duration of the campaign. Every vote earns us $5 - vote today to change lives.
