Bellyful New Zealand

Estimated Time: 8 - 12 Hours Over 1 - 2 Weeks

We want to share stories about our recipient families and volunteers, so our supporters can learn about the impact we have. We have a couple of recipient families and volunteers that are happy to share their story, so now need a volunteer(s) with skill and passion for impact storytelling to interview them by phone, skype or in person to write-up the story. The stories will be published in our newsletter and on our website, and linked to from Facebook.
