A slice of your love for something good

Supplied Content (Edited)

New Zealanders, who are always looking for a great way to do good, will find a new visionary online platform useful.

Called, Swathe.me, it helps people to support loved ones and others who are experiencing unexpected health or life challenges.

Personal experience

The initiative was developed by Co-Founders Janey and Andrew Carr in response to a personal crisis. One of their friends was diagnosed with leukaemia and spent nine months in hospital.

Despite having a great support network and any number of offers to help, they witnessed a significant impact that their friend’s cancer treatment had on his family.

During that experience, they identified a real need for delivering additional emotional, financial, and practical support for the day-to-day practicalities of acute and chronic illness or disability.

Strong Partnership

Operating in partnership with the Perpetual Guardian Foundation, Swathe.me is a charitable entity designed to make it easy and practical for people to respond to that always-asked question, ‘Is there anything I can do to help?’

Free and User-Friendly

Mr Carr said, “Everything we do at Swathe.me makes every day better for those experiencing difficult times. We make it easy to give practical support to someone you know during their time of need, even when you can’t be there in person. Our direct support platform is free and simple to use, so that together we can make a difference every day.”

Ms Carr said that anyone can choose from a list of everyday things to offer support.

“It could be preparing a meal, doing the laundry, or mowing the lawn. Then you share your list with your family and friends next time they ask, ‘What can I do to help?’ This lets them know how they can help in a way that actually makes a difference,” she said.

Special Card

Swathe.me has been set up to enable charitable giving to those in need through the ‘Swathe.me Card’ especially for those times when a supporter can’t be there in person due to time or distance.
