Job Role (Short version):
We set up tables and stands in the Auckland CBD: we work inside of shopping malls and local businesses. As a fundraiser, your job entails saying hello to people. If they stop to have a conversation about the charity, you simply show them some information, answer any questions they may have, and invite them to make a donation that can literally save someone's life! That's it. Pretty cool, right?
Job Role (Detailed version):
Welcome to our tribe! We're Public Outreach New Zealand: a flock of bright individuals, amazing allies, and creative free-spirits. Our tribe speaks for the world that we wish to coincide with. We advocate for a world in which our local environment is protected and sustained for the long haul. We fight for a day in which families fleeing warzones receive vital medical assistance. We even carve out a future in which no child goes without food, shelter, or clean drinking water.
I used to feel disconnected from my work. (Can't everyone relate to that?) Specifically, I used to work in retail for minimum wage. I used to unbox mountains of cardboard and non-recyclable plastic, only to see some of the products I was selling go to complete waste. On a subconscious level, I also knew that there was nothing ethical about the production of these products. In fact, most of them were produced in sweatshops by means of child labor and environmental degradation. Each day, I understood that selling these products lined the pockets of a stinking rich CEO and kept me poor as dirt. I was an ant to that company. But I needed the job. I had bills to pay after all, so I stayed longer than I would have liked to, forgoing my own beliefs and becoming more and more dissatisfied with my meaningless work.
You don't have to live that way. Take it from me: that line of thinking is old and outdated. Human beings are not machines. We are people with lives, loved ones, creative hobbies, aspirations, and so much more than what meets the eye. We all hold a golden vision for the world we would like to see. That's why I chose a field in which my dedication is being poured into marginalized communities that have far less than I do. In the Public Outreach New Zealand tribe, you will be a true hero by raising funds for some of the world's most ethical charities. These organizations are making a real tangible difference in all of our lives. By fighting for human rights and environmental protection, these charities are warriors. We are standing together with them and speaking up for the world we want to live in.
The way that we raise funds is quite simple. We speak to the general public in public spaces, bring awareness to these issues, and encourage people to begin monthly charitable giving. We have thousands of supporters in New Zealand already who have come to us to make a change.
Each time we get a donor on board in Auckland, we are directly sending help to someone in need, be it international or local support. Have you ever made a charitable donation before? If so, you have likely viewed your fundraiser like an unsung hero. We are looking for people who can step into this role, knowing that they too are heroes. The difference is that we will sing for you. As a fundraiser, our expectations are to simply find our flow and have fun speaking to the community. It is a relaxed and supportive environment. Have fun getting to know amazing people, and you will succeed to meet your team target without a shred of doubt! I have heard so many rich stories from my donors over the last year alone. These stories restored my faith in humanity and kept each day interesting, new, and refreshing.
The best thing about it is that anyone can learn. I became a fundraiser with no prior experience and excelled to my first promotion in my first couple months. When you show up to work, have a positive attitude and an open mind, you can do it too! Thank you for all of that reading! You're sturdy! Here what we're offering in a nut-shell:
