It's up to all of us to keep kids safe. 

What better way to start conversations about the wellbeing of kids, than to send thousands of life size cardboard 'children' into the community for a day with business people, politicians, Iwi and members of the public!

Buddy Day 2014 is on the 14th of November.

And that’s what we do on Buddy Day – New Zealand’s only community event aimed at raising awareness and starting conversations about the role every adult plays in preventing child abuse.

Now that Buddy day is wrapped up for the year, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that was involved.

Whether you were a creator, a carer, a champion, or cheering us from the side-lines - every single person who participated in Buddy Day played a critical role in generating thousands of conversations and spreading the message that it’s up to all of us to keep kids safe.

Buddy Day 2014 was a definite success, and we could not have done it without your participation, leadership and support.
