Here at Smart Pack, we believe that true kindness comes through helping other Kiwis in need. We endeavour to give back to the community, and that's why we created our new Caring For Our Community Initiative. As part of this new initiative, each employee has selected a NZ charity of their choice, and every 24 days (or less), Smart Pack commits to donate to a selected employee's charity on their behalf. The first employee selected is Dallas Tautu, our Warehouse and Logistics Manager. Dallas's selected charity is Cure Kids, who Smart Pack are proud to support.

Funding Child Health Research – Big Research For Little Lives

For more than 45 years, Cure Kids has been funding New Zealand researcher’s to find better treatments and cures for serious health conditions and illnesses that affect thousands of children. Our contribution to this amazing organisation helps make a difference to the lives of Kiwi kids, and ensure medical research can continue to improve health outcomes for children. Cure Kids have funded, or are currently funding, research to find better treatments and cures for inherited heart conditions, cystic fibrosis, childhood cancers, sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI), stillbirth, burns, epilepsy, and child/adolescent mental health, among many others. Since 1971, Cure Kids has invested more than $60 million in New Zealand research. They are the largest funder of child health research outside the government.

Red Nose Day is Cure Kid’s biggest annual fundraising appeal. This year, it took place on Friday the 30th of July. We wanted to do our bit by getting our workplace involved in this awesome initiative.
