The Get one. Give one. Campaign is an opportunity for Anglicans in Aotearoa New Zealand to pay it forward to others as we receive our vaccines for free (and now all over 12 years can book in!). Over $126k has been given so far to the Get One. Give One. campaign ...can you help increase this even more?
UPDATE: THANK YOU to all who have donated so far – over $126,000 as at 25 November (this figure doesn't include monies donated direct to Anglican Missions but is the latest total via the Givealittle page) and we are aiming for a new goal of $150,000 (providing 15,000 vaccinations for vulnerable and poor communities)

The 'Get one. Give one.' campaign protects and supports the world's most vulnerable from COVID-19 through vaccine equality.
Why the campaign
Vaccines are rolling out across Aotearoa New Zealand. We are grateful to have the opportunity to help communities to be safe from Covid-19. Yet as a global community, we know we are not safe until everyone is safe. As followers of Jesus, equal access to health care is a Kingdom justice issue. We know that in many developing countries vaccines may not be available or are expensive. In particular we know that developing countries often experience gaps in structure and networks which can adversely affect vaccine distribution.
The Get one, Give one campaign aims to protect and support the poorest and most vulnerable. Through your support, we have an opportunity to contribute to a global, recognised and respected initiative that aims to love our neighbours through funding access to vaccines in developing countries.
The idea behind Get one, Give one is simple. As each of us receive our vaccine, we are invited to donate the cost of getting a vaccine to someone in the developing world. This happens through the Get one, Give one Givealittle crowd fundraising page.
The unit cost of delivering one vaccine comes to between $5 and $10. We are asking everyone to donate $10 to cover the delivery of a single vaccine to someone in the majority world. This includes the cost of delivery networks such as local distribution, storage, vaccination centre staffing. etc. See more here: https://www.corecommitments.unicef.org/kp/covax-delivery-cost.pdf.
This is why we encourage you to aim to not just vaccinate one person, but as many as possible. All donations are tax-deductible over $5!
