Neighbours Day Aotearoa eNewsletter: April 2017

Wednesday, April 12, 2017   Posted in: Newsletters By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, Community Groups

Thanks to everyone that participated in this year's Neighbours Day. We've seen and heard many of the great stories from around the country which we've loved. Despite the horrible weather in some places people still got out there, had fun and connected with their community and got to know their neighbours!

Neighbours Day Aotearoa would love to get some feedback from you about Neighbours Day 2017 and how your organisation got involved. They will use this to help make Neighbours Day even better in the future, and to show our supporters and funders what a worthwhile initiative this is. They need your help to do that, and it will only take a few minutes.

Would you mind filling in our survey as a representative of your organisation?  You can enter into the draw for a grocery voucher - as a little thank you for your time.

Give your feedback on Neighbours Day 2017.

Sharing your stories

Neighbours Day Aotearoa really want to hear about the great neighbours, events, and fun times that your having. They have a few different ways you can do that:

  • I Heart my Hood;
  • Neighbourhood Champions; and
  • Just plain sharing!

Neighbourhood Champions

This month's neighbourhood champion will receive a framed print of a Doug Pearson photo.

Doug is an amazing landscape and travel photographer who has had his images grace the covers of magazines and travel guides around the globe.

I Heart My Hood Project

I Heart My Hood Project is your chance to celebrate your hood by sharing stories, photos or video. We really want to see and hear about the people in your neighbourhood. Portraits or videos of our neighbourhood champions, or the people that to you personify your community or 'hood'.

This year we're doing it a little differently. To help focus we've chosen three themes - excuse the photography pun.

  1. I Heart the History of My Hood
  2. I Heart Diversity in my Hood 
  3. I Heart My Healthy Hood

So get snapping and chatting.
Visit the Neighbours Day Aotearoa website to enter and 'share your story'.

Get more information on I Heart My Hood on Facebook.

If you get a sudden urge to share Neighbours Day on social media, don't fight that urge and use #neighboursdaynz.
