It's your last chance to pick up a piece of outstanding memorabilia at the same time as supporting the cricket crazy village of Hanuabada, Papua New Guinea.

The Blackcaps have generously donated 3 official test shirts signed by the team that toured India in 2016 to help raise money for our work in the Pacific. Check out the listings today: wvnz.org.nz/trademe-wv
A surplus is when a government has money left over at the end of the year. It's a good sign that we’re living within our means and planning well.

In government, Labour will have a surplus every year, unless there’s a significant event like a natural disaster or a major economic crisis. If there is a crisis, we will make up for that in the good times.

Help name the boat
[ Greenpeace.nz Link ]

When we put out the call for New Zealanders to help us buy a bigger boat to confront the oil industry, the response was amazing. In only seven days we raised almost $100,000 - enough to buy a 50ft ex-pilot boat and prepare it for sea. Then we asked you to suggest names for the newest member of the Greenpeace fleet and we received over 3,000 ideas!...

Dear animal lovers,

My cat Moby came from the SPCA. Every day he brings me so much joy, and I can’t even think of a life without him in it.

I love watching him hanging out with his other feline friends in the neighbourhood, obsess over flies, and seeing how excited he gets when he sees his brush.

I look forward to him sneaking under the duvet while I’m sleeping or hear him chat to me in...

While there I met the Prime Minister, Foreign Minister, and other Ministers, development partners, and UNDP Lao PDR staff and UN Country Team leaders. My visit was also the...

Remember Joy? She was brought to SPCA Auckland last year by one of our Inspectors after living in cramped conditions with her health left to deteriorate.

On arrival, she was anxious and very unsure of her surroundings. Extremely nervous, our canine attendants had to spend lots of one on one time showing her the world was OK and she could trust them.

They were lucky enough to find a...
