Charity Votes - Computer Help

We’ve had a great response to our choice of a new charity to support. Lots of people have emailed us here at Computer Help NZ with messages of support for each of the three charities – 0800 Hungry, City Mission & Nurse Maude. It’s been lovely to read the longer messages that share a story of how these charities have helped you personally.

Some have shared about how their father was cared for in his dying days, others how they have been helped through a tough time. Others still about a tough financial crisis affected their friends and one of these charities was there to support them.
