Our 36 incredibly brave and talented Money for Jam teams have had a fun time busking for a great cause!
They have raised heaps which will make a real difference providing more performance places for more kids with disabilities in more New Zealand regions. Thanks so much for the huge effort, guys.
Many of the teams have had some challenging and magical experiences along the way….
“We were humbled to perform for the kids yesterday,you haven’t lived until you see a child in a wheelchair smiling & dancing to your performance.”

The Balzats’ video was judged Best Video by our panel of celebrity judges Temuera Morrison, Ray Woolf and Ben Lummis. Their fantastic prize is two return Air New Zealand tickets to Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane.
Best Photo goes to Jamie and Bianca. They score a weekend of luxury family accommodation on Waiheke Island.
