For this issue we really dived into the Collective world of our people who give a %. We looked at happiness, single use plastics and how two of our amazing Collective supporters see us unf**king the world. We talked to Luis Sutherland about his recent ‘Mike & Mandy’ video, that he and Sweetshop kindly produced for us. There are so many amazing humans in the Collective and this issue gives you a look into some of their worlds. Enjoy!

Issue FIVE Editor's YARN

One. Million. Dollars! Yep, as I write this, your 1% donations are collectively on the verge of hitting the million dollar raised milestone, an amazing Collective achievement! 

While we talk here about the dollar figures, the most important thing to remember is that each and every donation is impacting the lives of people and the environment in Aotearoa and beyond. That’s thousands of lives supported each and every year by your small, regular acts of generosity. I think that’s pretty darn awesome!

So when Louis Sutherland and Naz Nazli sent us through the final words for our new ‘Mike & Mandy’ video, you can just imagine the grin when we read this: Sometimes giving almost nothing means almost everything.

It beautifully captures what this whole generosity movement is about, a small act that has minimal impact on our day-to-day lives, yet has the hugest impact on those who need our support. 

To all of you who have been part of the Collective journey over the years, I can’t thank you enough for the support you have given, in so many ways. Believe me, meeting the charities and seeing the lives impacted makes this thing so incredibly worthwhile.

To those of you ready to join us in giving a %, we can’t wait for your help in creating even more impact. Thank you.
