Lent Appeal 2013 & Receipts
THANK YOU to all have given generously to our Lent Appeal - you have helped us raise over $900,000. Because of you, communities in Papua New Guinea can plant cocoa seedlings for income, community groups in Tonga can take out small loans to develop enterprises in chicken and pig farming, and tapa making. And we can help address other issues of poverty and injustice in New Zealand and around the world.
Donors who gave using red 'One Lent Total' envelopes should have received a receipt within 2 weeks of payment. Processing of donations received through the weekly, purple Lenten envelopes takes longer, and has recently been completed - receipts for those should be received by 18 May. Thank you for your patience.
