Charities & Fundraising

At Native Eye we love to give back and support different Charities from around New Zealand. We have recently done a collection via our Christmas Gift Wrapping to Womens Refuge NZ and have started receiving daily emails requesting paint kits in support of different fundraising events.

We have since decided that each month we are going to choose one charity or fundraising event to gift one of our Native Eye Paint Kits & Native Eye Brush sets valued at over $80.00 and give them a shout out on our social channels. We'll also list each group here so you can see who we've picked for the month.

You can apply by simply filling in the form below and we will pick one deserving charity each month!

PLEASE NOTE: Only one email per organisation and once you have emailed us you will be automatically included in the draw each month. To ensure this is fair for everyone once you have been selected as a Winner you will then be removed from the draw to give others a chance. 

Please let us know the following in your message…
