Donate your kit

1 in 8 kids feel excluded from sport because they don’t have the gear. By donating children’s preloved sports gear, we can help more Kiwi kids enjoy the benefits of sport.

There’s a glass & a half in everyone

In a world that can seem increasingly self-absorbed the generous acts are harder to spot. But they are there, happening everyday, in all walks of life.

That’s why we believe there is a glass & a half in everyone.

Since its launch in 2019, the Donate Your Kit programme has worked to help the 1 in 8 Kiwi kids who are excluded from sport because they don’t have the gear. Using our network of purple lockers, Kiwis have donated 60,000 pieces of new and used kit to those who need it most. Through our charity partnership with KidsCan, we have funded 480 sports grants totalling $400K to help individuals and local teams increase their participation in sport, and to help schools upgrade their facilities with new sports equipment. With DYK continuing in 2021, you can help more kids by donating any of your pre-loved sports kit into a purple or virtual locker.

Why donating kit matters

All Kiwi kids deserve to experience the benefits of playing sport. Sadly, 1 in 8 kids feel excluded from sport because they don't have the gear. By donating kit we can help get more kids playing sport.
