Newsletter December 2016
Greetings – Kia ora koutou
Another year is nearly over and what a year it was!
The state of the world confirms that something needs to be done and that is why we started the World Women Charitable Trust.
12 months ago it was only an idea and now we have a confirmed conference date, venue and wonderful international and national speakers http://www.worldwomen.org.nz/event/worldwomen17
Today we are proud to tell you, that we have nearly 300 registrations.
We have had great support from the media. In the January issue of NEXT magazine, released in New Zealand early December, there was a great 3 page article about Dr Tererai Trent, one of our keynote speakers, and a column about worldwomen17.
Theresa Gattung, one of our co-founders, has talked to lots of women at various functions about worldwomen17 and the momentum is building.
We are excited to let you know that we have added a new feature to our website which enables you to help another woman attend worldwomen17. The feature allows you to donate whatever amount you would like towards a ticket. When we have the full price of a ticket the World Women Charitable Trust will select someone to give the ticket to .. a woman who would normally not be able to come along. Isn’t that fantastic? You can donate here http://www.worldwomen.org.nz/civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=1
Also some women who can’t attend themselves have registered and paid for another woman .. you simply follow the registration procedure but instead of putting your details in you put the details of the woman you are paying for. Register another woman here http://www.worldwomen.org.nz/civicrm/event/register?id=1&reset=11
In closing, we would like to thank everybody involved in our journey so far and wish you all the best for the holiday season. In New Zealand most people take the opportunity of having a well-earned break and the month of January is very quiet. We look forward to connecting and creating with you again in 2017.
Happy holidays and a very healthy and Happy New Year to you all.
All the best - Nā mātou
Theresa Gattung, Barbara Gabler, Chris Woodwiss, Lindy Nelson
