Points for Purpose is helping make life easier for families of premature babies, such as three-month old Tiare O’Sullivan-Heemi.
Born 14 weeks early on July 21 and weighing just 985 grams, Tiare was just bigger than her mother’s hand. Mum Brittany Hepi said the days after Tiare’s birth were mixed with happiness and anxiety after her baby was whisked away to an incubator. Read the full story at here.
Hepi was hugely appreciative of Points for Purpose and said it helped charities like The Neonatal Trust make life a little bit easier for families.
On November 1, mother and daughter received a brand new wool baby blanket and in doing so became the first family to benefit from the trust’s new partnership with the Points for Purpose initiative.
The scheme supplies charities with useful goods for those who need them the most. Goods are paid for using Fly Buys points donated by other Kiwis.
It was a clever way of allowing people who were short of cash or with surplus points to help those in need.
