crafted Māori bone, shell, wood and jade carvings
Māori Jade Carving
beauty of jade is surreal with its semi translucent look and swirls
of green that seem to float deep within the stone. 250+ designs
to choose from
Māori Wood Carving
trees have been used to carve everything from the giant Waka or
sea going canoes to totems, decorations for meeting houses and weapons.
Māori Bone Carving
carvings and artwork have a very special feel about them, unlike
anything else you will ever experience. The Maori believe this to
be the carving taking on some of your spirituality.
Fundraising Hints and Tips
If your team is like most, and you are planning
an end of season tour, you will need to fund raise to help cover the
costs. But it does not have to be all work and no play, getting together
with your mates and raising a few bucks for your end of season tour
can be lots of fun. Here are a number of ideas that should help get
you on the right track. But don't stop with these, there are many ways
to earn a buck if you have a spare few hours and a team of willing troops
- the sky's the limit!
An old kiwi favourite; speak to a local store
like the warehouse who often have a BBQ you can use then visit your local
butcher who might even give you a discount on a large amount of pre-cooked
The Mad Butcher All local Community
Groups can purchase BBQ Sausages at a discounted Price, bread, sauce,
mustard and sliced onions are also available at everyday low prices. To
receive the sausages at the discounted price groups must provide a letter
highlighting their group and the reason for the fundraiser to show to
the owner or manager of the store the sausages will be purchased from.
Head down to the local supermarket where most
of the team shops, speak to the owner or manger telling him/her about
the tour and ask if it would be possible for some of the kids to come
down one weekend to pack shopping bags. Customers can then make a donation
into the bucket if they wish; wear the team kit as you do it.
Raffles are another favourite
with the old meat raffle sending many a team away on their end of season
tours. Other great ideas include raffling rugby tickets, and also a sponsorship
raffle where local businesses buy tickets for $50 and the winning business
gets naming rights on your kit and becomes team sponsor. You can put the
money towards the trip or a new kit.
Every weekend over the summer have a car wash
with different people each weekend donating their time at the club or
at a busy spot around town; a great way to gain some funds and a good
laugh as well. And if your team is really motivated you could even get
in to doing odd jobs around the community for a small donation.
Get everyone at the club to donate some things
they no longer need that you could sell in a car boot sale at the club;
you could even have a club day with all kinds of activities to help your
team raise some extra funds, you will be surprised how many people will
lend a hand when they know it's for a good cause. Let us know how you
get on with any of your own ideas and we'll put the best ones on here.
Good luck and happy fund raising!
