Like proud parents, we're always stoked to see innovative Kiwis who we've covered here at Idealog go on to find success and dream bigger.
Take Jason Holdaway, whose brainchild Frank Stationery is based upon the buy one-give one model (for every item purchased, another is donated to a child in need).
Or Juliet Arnott, who's behind Rekindle, an initiative that takes waste wood and recrafts it into quirky furniture.
Both are finalists in the Yealands Raise A Glass contest. Six young finalists, including Sea2Summit7's Dave Williams (mental health), Hear For You's Elena Keith (for the hearing impaired), Hand Over A Hundy's Jade Temepara (teaching how to grow produce) and musician Iva Lamkum, are battling it out to win a share of $25,000 to put towards their dreams.
The more votes they get, the larger their portion. So if their causes resonate with you, get clicking!
You can vote once a day until April 30. Plus, by voting you’ll go in the draw to win $5,000 towards your own goals.
