My Story

Hey whatsup! :) i'm Dani and I work for a radio station called Mai fm. One of the reasons I wanted to work in radio was for my voice to be heard for all the right reasons so as soon as I heard of this opportunity to support and raise awareness for the youth homelessness I jumped on it.

Half of the homeless population in New Zealand are under 25, and 40% of those young people are LGBTIQ. These figures are scary, but whats even scarier is that 26% of these young people are homeless because they were disowned by their families.

Myself coming from a LGBT backround I have been there I know what the feelings are and how scary it is to come out and the not knowing if you will be accepted, I was extremely lucky with my family and friends unfortunately as these statistics prove it is not the same outcome for many LGBTIQ and the least I could do is raise awareness and rough it for one night.

I love to help where I can and although I cant save the world I can do awesome things like this to work our way towards it. Whatever you can click the "give now" button and lets prove that they are not alone. Thanks so much :)

Team Rainbow is back! And we need your support to raise money in ending youth homelessness in Aotearoa. Each one of us are aiming to raise $2,000 to tackle the issue of youth homelessness that affects us all as a nation. Team Rainbow will be rugging up and heading to AUT on the night of July the 6th to experience something no person should - sleeping rough in the middle of winter. While we are lucky enough to be heading back to our homes on the 7th of July, up to 40% of our LGBTI youth don’t have that choice. This is not surprising when you learn that 34% of young LGBTI people leave home after coming out to their families and experience violence at home.

Last year the money raised by Team Rainbow was used to employ a Rainbow Housing Support Worker as part of a targeted intervention to work with young LGBTI identifying homeless people. This year the money that Team Rainbow raises will be used by Lifewise and RainbowYOUTH to continue the work of providing support young LGBTI people who endure homelessness.

So please, give generously and hit that “Give Now” button as many times as you can in the following months, share our cause on whatever social media outlet you have, and get involved by giving all that you can.

Thank you for your support, it will make a world of difference for our community.
