Your Red Nose Day donation will help fund vital research into the treatment and cures of serious health conditions that affect our kids.



Cure Kids

Our purpose is simple

At Cure Kids, every single day our researchers are driven to find the cures for serious health conditions that affect many of our children. We focus on raising funds so that vital medical research can continue until our researchers find the cures our kids need. Put simply, we fund the cures, they find the cures. Everyday New Zealanders, just like you, open up their hearts and wallets to help improve or prolong the lives of Kiwi kids while we strive for our ultimate goal: the cure. Red Nose Day is our annual, national appeal. Over $1million was raised in 2014, and this year is set to become our biggest fundraising effort yet. In fact with your generosity, it’s going to be totally REDiculous.

It's been birthday fun for a bunch of our ambassadors this month, including Briar, Jackson and Jenna.

Briar celebrated turning sweet sixteen and did so in total girly fun style! 21 friends and lots of fun and laughter. Briar who lives with leukaemia fought a massive battle during her treatment and celebrated being cancer free for 7 years last year! Briar you have grown in to a beautiful generous young lady and we are proud to have you as part of our Cure Kids family.

Jackson is sunning himself in Fiji for his 14th birthday, not only celebrating this big milestone but also attending his mums wedding!
Jackson lives with an inoperable brain tumour and is a massive dance star. Happy birthday Jackson and a big congratulations to Rosanne on your upcoming nuptials.

Little Jenna had the fairy party she had hoped for to celebrate turning 10!
Fairies and friends, with a Frozen themed cake had her beautiful smile shining! Jenna lives with a hole in her heart, diabetes and alopecia and constantly brings smiles to everyone she meets. Happy birthday Jenna from your friends here at Cure Kids.

Jorja lives with burns. She was just 19 months old when she pulled a cup of tea off the table onto her chest receiving serious burns. Nearly 500 children are admitted to hospital every year with serious burns and scalds.

Cure Kids-funded research has discovered a way to grow full-thickness skin in the lab with the potential to reduce the need for painful and invasive skin grafts for child burns patients. Human trial could realistically be carried out as early as 2017. Help us continue funding vital medical research: curekids.org.nz/donate
