This is the biggest humanitarian crisis of our time. Millions of children have been affected by war in Syria and they're missing out on the childhoods they deserve. This year with the #40HFNZ, we're raising money for Child Friendly Spaces again to make sure every Syrian child has the chance to play and learn.

Three years ago, you raised an incredible $2.1 million for Malawi! Since then, schools around the country are building mini-gardens so students can pick their favourite vegetables and eat them with their lunch.

Thanks to you, none of these students have to learn on an empty stomach - we think that's something to celebrate. #PowerOf40 #40HFNZ
