Star appeal: there’s still time

Star appeal: there’s still time

You can still be someone’s star this Christmas – that’s the message from our whānau at the Wellington City Mission.

There’s still time to make a difference for local families and individuals in need this Christmas by supporting the Mission’s Christmas Star Appeal.  There are lots of ways you can get involved, including getting your name on the Mission’s Walk of Fame.

The Walk of Fame is a Wellington waterfront art installation which is displayed on Te Papa Promenade for the month of December. The stars are looking fantastic, and you can still add your name or logo.

Stars range in price, starting at $100 for an Individual/Group star, and each one represents families being supported this Christmas and beyond. You may like to get a star for yourself, your family, your grandchildren, or even your pets – there are so many creative names that people have put on their stars in the past. Or maybe your parish, women’s group, or youth group could get a star. The last date you can order a star is Monday 17 December.

However you decide to help, your contribution will make a significant difference in the life of a Wellington family or individual who is struggling. You will be their star this Christmas, bringing them hope, joy, and courage by showing that people in their community care.

Visit today to order your star, or to find out about the other ways you can help. Thanks for being someone’s star!
