This festive season, Ray White will continue its successful charity drive ‘A Little Ray of Giving’ for the tenth year running.
This holiday campaign is a tradition for the brand and serves as an opportunity for hundreds of local branches to connect with their communities while raising awareness and much-needed resources for worthy causes.
As a charitable initiative, the campaign will see Ray White Millwater partner with Steps Forward Family Services and Ronald McDonald House Charity to help people, families and groups who may need some extra support and care during the festive season. This campaign has always been a real highlight of our year. It gives us a chance to reach out to the people around us directly in a way that benefits people with less advantages, and get them things they need during a demanding time of year.
We are calling on our local community to show their generosity and give to Steps Forward Family Services, by purchasing a new gift and popping the present underneath the Ray White Millwater Giving Tree.
2021, and 2020 too, have both been extremely difficult for everyone but no one’s felt the negatives more than those groups that were already vulnerable. Lots of people and families have even found themselves in a bad position because of the way things have gone recently. So this year’s A Little Ray of Giving is especially important to us, and it’s going to be a good way to let people in need of help know that their community supports them.
Those who wish to donate a gift to Steps Forward Family Services just need to inform our team if the gift is for a male or female and nominate an age group. You can do this by labelling your gift or letting us know and we can label and wrap for you. For every gift we receive Ray White Millwater will then match the value of your gift and make a donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charity to also help support a safe haven to families with a child in a hospital away from home.
Ray White Millwater located at 3/16 Wainui Road, Silverdale will have their special giving tree in their front window and will be collecting gifts from Monday 01st December 2021.

Charity Begins at Home: At Ray White, we understand the importance of a ‘home’, which is why we’re proud to sponsor Ronald McDonald House – New Zealand’s ‘home away from home’ for the families of children requiring specialist medical care. We also participate in RMHC national Street Appeal along with other Ray White Offices in collecting money from the public.
Please, consider if now is the right time to support families throughout New Zealand during what is often some of the most distressing and difficult moments of their lives.
By sponsoring a room at Ronald McDonald House you will offer a safe haven to families with a child in a hospital away from home.
Room sponsorship support enables Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) New Zealand to provide and maintain comfortable and beautifully furnished bedrooms and bathrooms, essential to a families well being at no cost to them.
RMHC New Zealand is one of New Zealand’s most trusted and recognisable charities and the demand for their services continues to grow, year on year.
In December 2016 Ray White Millwater teamed up with STEPS forward Family Services (Formerly Hibiscus Coast Family Services) and Ronald McDonald House Charities NZ for Ray White Australia and New Zealand’s joint Christmas initiative ‘A Little Ray of Giving’ and collected 284 gifts thanks to generous members of our local community.
What is ‘A Little Ray of Giving’?
It’s a Christmas initiative run throughout December each year whereby community members are encouraged to wrap and deliver gifts under our giving tree located in our
office reception area. The gifts are then collected and distributed by STEPS forward Family Services and Ronald McDonald House Charities NZ to those families in need.
The nature of the gift drive allows the community to boost the festive season to those who may not be fortunate enough to celebrate it this year. It’s all about heart and
giving this year, and what could be better than knowing you are making a difference to people’s live’s at a time when it is most needed?
How can YOU help make a difference this Christmas?
This December you help make a difference to less fortunate families in our community by purchasing and popping a gift underneath the Ray White Millwater Giving Tree located at reception, Unit 3, 16 Wainui Road, Silverdale. (We will happily wrap it here).
