Kia ora team, just a reminder: If you’ve signed up and haven’t seen an email telling you you’ve been allocated a child, please log in at https://ift.tt/2edWMJS – one of two things will happen: You’ve already been allocated a child and will see their details under My Kids Details, or You will be resent another verification email to click confirm on. This might go to your spam/junk/promo folder, so please check all the folders in your email. There are usually some people who pull out from the project closer to Christmas, and I’ll reallocate those gifts to the people on the confirmed waiting list :) Talk soon, Pera

Yo. If ‘the fight of your life’ is one to be allowed to tell your 280k followers that my gay mates and whānau are inherently evil, while keeping your $5m property portfolio sweet… you can’t have my money. If you don’t think there are bigger problems the world could solve with three million donated dollars right now, or even just your contribution… take some time and look around, please. Here’s a few places to start, there are lots more. KidsCanNZ , Variety New Zealand , Pillars (Shoebox Christmas doesn’t need any putea at the moment). No names or links, I don’t wanna send that kūrapa/nonsense any more clicks or views than it already has.

Me: “New early morning routine is feeling good so far. Coffee, meditate, te reo lesson, write some of m–” Kāhu: “Shut up. You’ll get up when I tell you to.” 😥 Inspiration gets you started, discipline and routine helps you finish… 18 month olds make you question what you did with your daily 16 hours before they arrived and remind you all that matters is the miraka/milk 🍼🍼

“What could be more important than your kid? Please don’t play the busy card. If you spend 2 hours a day, without an electronic device, looking your kid in the eye, talking to them and solving interesting problems, you will raise a different kid than someone who doesn’t do that.” – Seth Godin. Not the first time I’ve heard him say this, and maybe not the first time I’ve re-posted it.
