This week the two charities came together at a joint ‘cookathon’ to create meals for families in need – a number of which will support families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Dunedin Hospital. This is a new approach which the teams have been working on for a wee while now and it was fantastic to see it all come together!
There is no Ronald McDonald House in Dunedin so when families from out of town suddenly find themselves in an unfamiliar city, these meals will help those hungry and tired parents through a tough time and will help alleviate some of the stress involved in a neonatal journey.
A massive thank you to Bellyful Dunedin for showing our volunteers the ropes and a special thank you to all those involved with the cookathon!
We love #Collaboration. When organisations work together, great things can be achieved. It was great to work alongside the Bellyful team to help support Dunedin neonatal families.
The Neonatal Trust and Bellyful have a shared objective of helping families in times of need. With us both having the privilege of being partner charities of One Percent Collective.we have worked together on a number of occasions to share stories and raise awareness. Here’s a couple of recent examples os stories shared where families have been supported by both organisations:

Here’s a gallery of support examples.
Both The Neonatal Trust and Bellyful are proud to be supported by One Percent Collective. A fantastic and fresh new approach to generosity, you can set up small regular payments which you have the choice as to how they are split – 1, 2 or more charities can be supported with your 1% and One Percent Collective take care of all the transfers and admin for you.
