Your time – te wā ki a koe, your words – ō kupu, your presence – ko koe tonu.
Giving makes us feel good. It gives us a sense of purpose, self-worth and connection and also builds mana. Giving is not just about money or sharing material things though – it’s about giving your time, your words, and your presence. It’s about having a spirit of generosity, and taking an active part in the life of your whānau and community.
