The Makeover Project> Merivale is complete
The Hunapo family arrived home today to a very different house-
with a mixture of traditions, moving hakas and meaningful speeches there was no shortage of tear at 28b Hampton terrace this afternoon.
A huge thank you to all the volunteers, businesses, cooks, neighbors, community workers, whanua you all made this happen.
Your sacrifice, generosity, enthusiasm, love, late nights and all round amazingness changed a families life forever. I cant express enough how enormous these last 11 days have been- thank you to my team, to the Hunapo Whanua, the mosaic community and merivale for an incredible week.
The video will be up tomorrow, Thanks everyone
So its day five- sorry it has taken me so long to update the site, it has been manic on the building site, a beautiful chaos! over 150 volunteers have come from any where between an hour or a couple of days to help. Neighbours, people that saw it in the paper, friends, family, PD workers, polytech students and much more have been a sample of the work force. Today the weather is less than ideal, in fact its rubbish and putting us a little behind schedule. We haven’t started on the landscaping yet, however the inside of the house is starting to take shape.
A huge thanks to everyone helping, bringing food and donating-
We still need $5000 to finish off, you can donate on this website site or bring a some money to the building site.
The address is 28b Hampton Terrace if you cant find us
