Team Hasbro - Amazing Christmas Gift to IDFNZ

Mangawhai Respite Home  Make-over

The IDFNZ Mangawhai holiday home is 15 years old and has been well used by family members from all over New Zealand. Looking a little tired however, the Board decided it was time to give this much-loved Home a special make-over.

 Hasbro New Zealand  put up their hands to help  once again by selecting IDFNZ KIDS Foundation to be their charity of choice for their 2019 Day of Joy Project. 

The Hasbro donation paid for a compete internal re-paint brightening up the whole house, along with The Oxford Sports Trust who sponsored the cost of new flooring.  IDFNZ member volunteers completed all of this interior work over November and December.

 And on December 12th, Hasbro closed their business to move their whole team of staff across to our house to play Santa Claus to the Foundation for the day. This was an amazing gesture at their busiest time of year. Team members worked very hard staining exterior decks and putting the finishing touches to the interior of our house. By the time they were finished the house looked better than brand new!

A huge “Thank you” to Lynne Sansum, Megan Fitzgerald and the amazing Hasbro Team for making this dream come true.


Thank you so much for sponsoring IDFNZ KIDS Foundation - our medically fragile families will enjoy respite breaks in the calming tranquility of the new fresh and cheerful decor.
