“This initiative is a way for Kiwis to remember the service of others in the past, and to continue that tradition of generosity and sacrifice in a practical way.

I would like to congratulate those who have already pledged their time, and encourage others to do the same.” HRH Prince Harry

 

 

Serve for New Zealand: Anzac Day was run as a pilot project in 2016. Designed to encourage everyday Kiwis to offer an hour of their time in their local communities on a day of national significance, the event saw over 6,600 hours pledged. In 2017, we’re bringing Serve for New Zealand back – and making it bigger and better, in order to create more of an impact!

 

So, how do I take part?

  1.     Do you have a spare hour on or before Anzac Day, the 25th April 2017?

YES, I do!

  1. Great! Here are some ideas on how you can volunteer in your community or, check out these Serve for NZ projects to see if there is a project in your region that you could take part in!
  2. Pledge your time on servefor.nz
  3. Have fun volunteering in your community while sharing the values of service on this day of remembrance. Make sure you share your project with us on social media using #servefornz or tag @servefornz!

I’m busy on Anzac Day!

That’s okay! Everyone chooses to honour Anzac Day in their own way (which is part of what makes the day of remembrance so special). The good news is that you can complete your volunteer activity anytime before the 25th April 2017.

  1. There are a number of projects organised nationwide happening before Anzac Day, or complete your own volunteering anytime that suits you: here are some ideas!
  2. Don’t forget to still pledge your time on servefor.nz
