The Charity has been very busy during the recent earthquakes. Throughout our menu tabs you shall see some highlights, interesting news, and other information. We thank all individuals and groups who have generously donated and/or held fundraisers around the world. Keep it coming! As of August 2011 we will now spread our funds between quake emergency grants and our scholarships.
Anna Wilding left her job in the United States soon after the quakes in Feb to visit family and spend four to six months assisting in Christchurch. The Wilding Foundation, through the concentrated and hands-on efforts of founder Anna Wilding and her adminstrator, has so far has disbursed funds to many individuals and families in need in Christchurch, New Zealand, effected by the earthquakes.
Please see menu tabs throughout the site for some of our activities, such as the one below:

Rhiannon, a delighted and beautiful 4-year-old from New Brighton, Christchurch, was the special first recipient of Orignal NZ Boot Company boots from Ms Kylie Bax and Ms Anna Wilding. Her father, who was injured in the quake and lost his job as his factory was destroyed, writes:
"Good Afternoon Anna Wilding... I was taken to the NZ Sheepskin Co. today to pick up some slippers for Rhiannon, they look great, and I am writing to you to say a big thank you, and to send you a couple of photos of my gorgeous daughter in her new slippers.
So, on behalf of myself and Rhiannon (4yrs old) I send You, Anna Wilding and Kylie Bax, 2 extraordinary women of New Zealand, much Aroha, and many Blessings. May the Great Spirit Bless you both for your Love of Humanity and your Path for your Futures.
Many, many, many thanks to you both."
