mug mates


Kia ora mates, the world feels a bit bleak right now, it’s day after day of the worst news ever, so taking inspiration from feminist icon Gloria Steinem's wise words "Don't agonise. Organise"  I have gathered together some of Pōneke's finest creatives and independent business to bring you an epic giveaway to raise funds for Family Planning and Rainbow Youth. Donte at least $10 to either organisation and you’ll go into the draw to win one of twenty seven prizes.

How to enter
Make a donation to Family Planning and/or Rainbow Youth and send a screenshot of your receipt to Eloise at or DM Mug Mates on Instagram

$10 = 1 entry, $50 = 5 entries etc....

Share this post on your story for an extra entry

Entries open on the 25th of July and close at 11.59pm on the 15th of August

Winners will be selected at random and contacted by Mug Mates the week of the 15th of August and have 48 hours to respond

Open to NZ residents only to keep things as smooth as possible with postage

You do not need to follow all the wonderful creatives and businesses involved, but if you like what you see go and give them a follow,  this is about community not capitalism but we still have to pay the rent 

Items will be posted/emailed the week of the 22nd of August
