The Care Collective Program is calling for all New Zealanders to nominate themselves, or a deserving individual who has gone above and beyond to care for others.

We're asking people across the country to nominate extraordinary stories of care in their community.

In 2022, the Care Collective will recognise the most inspiring stories of care by rewarding five deserving New Zealanders with a share in $15,000 worth of individual prizes.

This year, the Care Collective is open in New Zealand.

Nominations open on Tuesday, August 16th

Uncovering the state of care in New Zealand

Following the events of the past two years, we surveyed 1,000 people to gain a deeper understanding of what care means to them and the role that our community plays in caring for one another.

Care that’s inspired us

In 2021, we created the Care Collective Program. A platform to champion exceptional human action - the people who inspire positive change in those around them.

Last year, we called on Australians to send in their nominations. We were moved with what we saw and were thrilled to give away a total of $100,000 worth of care packages to 55 amazing nominees. Now, we’re ready to hero some of New Zealand’s most exceptional people. We’re celebrating all the people who commit, who strive for better, who care. Here are some of the most inspiring stories from our neighbours across the pond.
