Not-for-profit, staffed by volunteers, and supporting children in great need
The Welcome Swallow Gift Shop and Gallery. Not-for-profit, staffed by volunteers, and supporting children in great need in the Waikato.
Save the Children NZ decided to close all retail gift shops including ours here in Hamilton East. Our branch and shop volunteers resolved that the shop will remain open and accordingly have formed a new charitable trust: Achieving Change for Children The new trust runs the retail gift shop The Welcome Swallow Gift Shop as it is known, belongs to a wholly independent charitable trust that donates its proceeds to Save the Children New Zealand and Waikato based charities that support children in need. Everyone who works in the shop, including the Shop Manager, is a volunteer. We receive no salaries; all our time and efforts are donated free. The money that we raise goes directly to children in need. This work is our passion, this is our home. Achieving Change for Children Charitable Trust.
