This money will go towards projects and causes that protect the natural environment and improve the general livability for both visitors and residents in the region.

At regular intervals throughout the year, Kiwi Welcome merchants will be selected at random to decide which community projects or initiatives will be funded. For more information on the kinds of projects and initiatives will be supported can be found on the ‘Merchants’ page and ‘Our Story’ page of our website. The draw takes place using third party, randomising technology, ensuring all merchants registered with Kiwi Welcome have an equal chance of being selected.
