One in seven kids in New Zealand live with asthma. We need your help to raise awareness and to reduce this statistic in our country.

We would love to ensure that kiwi kids know how to help themselves and others when an asthma emergency happens. It could take place, anywhere and any time. But we need your schools' help! 

Ways you can get involved:

Spread the word! 

Please help us spread the word about World Asthma Day by downloading our poster and placing it up in your workplace or school!

Fundraising ideas

A few ideas on how schools can get involved include:

Scooters and wheels     
Have a ‘bring your scooter to school’ day, arrange scooter events, hold a scooter decoration competition. It doesn’t have to be a scooter, anything with wheels will do.

Get some air into those lungs and make some noise. Arrange a “singathon”. Choirs, solos, duets - your pick. Pay to have your favourite song/s performed by a choir of children, teachers and whoever wants to get involved.

Get those budding musicians going with a performance. Expert or novice, everyone can get involved and make some music. Play or sing along. It’s the chance to have some fun.

Burn off some energy, run, walk, skip, jump or hop around the school or neighbourhood. The children can do it or sponsor their teachers instead. It’s all good fun.

Coin trail that is. See how far your donations can go. Straight line, word or an original design. Put some coins on a flat surface and see where they go.

That’s just our starting five. We’re sure you will come up with ideas that everyone can be involved with and get into the spirit of #kidshelpingkidsNZ.
