Buddy Day is about
doing altogether better for kids. 

Every child deserves a great childhood.

Our futures begin with - and depend on - our kids, and they need all the help we can give them. This affects you, your family, your business, your community: our country.

Doing better for kids is everyone's business.

That's why we're sending thousands of life-size cardboard 'children' into the community for the day: to raise awareness, start conversations and drive change about the role every adult plays in the lives of kids - from preventing child abuse to providing great environments for kids to flourish.

It's a wrap! Thank you to all who participated in Buddy Day 2015. 

Whether you are a Buddy Day Sponsor or Champion, a Buddy Creator or Carer - every single person who participated in Buddy Day helped to generate thousands of conversations  and drive change about the wellbeing of children.

Whatever your role, together we know we can bring about real social change in New Zealand.

Thank you for doing altogether better for kids.
