Get ready to Light It Orange

3-9 March 2018!

Why be part of Light It Orange? 

New Zealand has the highest domestic violence rate in the OECD with NZ Police attending a domestic violence callout every 4 minutes, over 90,000 children being exposed to domestic violence in their homes each year and a women is killed by a family member every 3½ weeks.

We are aiming to raise over $100,000 to fund the increasing demand on the national Helpline and advocacy.

How it works

Light It Orange is the week 3-9th March 2019. This is a bright week of Shine-y orangeness where thousands and thousands of dollars are raised to help victims of family violence, and to shine a light on domestic violence to let victims know they are not alone and that support available.
