More FM's Jingle Bail

BAIL TARGET: $100,000
FINAL DONATION UPDATE: $158,661

Thanks to you New Zealand, we have raised $158,661 for Koru Care NZ and are sending 39 Kiwi kids on a plane to the Gold Coast for the trip of a lifetime!

Christmas is a wonderful time for giving!  We wanted to share some of that Christmas cheer and send some special children on a Koru Care NZ trip to the Gold Coast for an experience they will never forget with More FM’s Jingle Bail.

Koru Care NZ’s mission is to make dreams come true for seriously ill and disabled New Zealand children.  These are Kiwi kids who have drawn the short straw: in some cases they have cancer, kidney disease or heart problems, in other cases they have lost the use of their limbs or have serious congenital abnormalities. But they still have the capacity to smile, laugh and create good memories; they just need some help.

What is Jingle Bail?

Jay-Jay & Flynny spent 5 days in a 5 x 5m jail cell in the middle of Lower Hutt’s Queensgate Shopping Center. Detained 24/7, sleeping, eating and living with each other until enough money was raised to take a group of deserving NZ children on a very special trip with Koru Care to the Gold Coast where they will visit the theme parks, bird sanctuary and more.

How you can help:

  1. Nominate a special child who would like to go on or would benefit from this amazing trip. (Download the form here, or read here for FAQs about applying.)
  2. Donate money towards the trip here.
  3. Text BAIL to 933 for an instant $3 donation.

Please note - 100% of donations go directly to Koru Care New Zealand (based in Auckland) and there are no administration fees.

Thanks to our friends at Camelspace who are building our jail cell.

And thanks to Queensgate Shopping Centre for hosting our Jingle Bail jail cell.
