Richie McCaw comes to life in Whangarei

first_imgFriday Aug 6, 2010 Richie McCaw comes to life in Whangarei All Black captain Richie McCaw recently came to life at a Northland school as he surprised a class that had made a papier mache statue of him. A smart bit of publicity by Adidas has been put together in the form of a video that shows what happened.Call him what you will on the field, he’s an All Black great and theres no doubting the fact that Richie McCaw is worshipped and admired not only around New Zealand, but indeed around the world.In Northland, pupils at Raurimu Avenue School were tasked with creating a papier mache statue of McCaw that was to be entered into an art competition for by their principal or so they were told.Two months of hard work later, and the unveiling day came as they were set to show off their masterpiece. Little did they know, McCaw slipped in undetected and as youll see, the shock and surprise of the kids soon turned to joy as their statue came to life and their hero had arrived for the day.“I thought it was the fake one but then when I saw it wasn’t I got real excited,” said one of the kids. Principal Sally Wilson had to keep things under wrap, telling a few lies and even going so far as to keep the secret from her husband.“I had to tell a few lies saying I was entered in an art competition for principals and the kids really believed I was in one. Parents came down to the school to see how I was going in it,” she said.McCaw himself was humbled by the experience.“It’s something that when I was a young fella I never thought that children at a school would make a statue of me… it’s a pretty amazing thing that you’ve done,” he said.Adidas arranged the visit as part of their Give Your All campaign that recognizes the most dedicated All Blacks fans in the country. The school have now laid down the challenge to the rest of the country.

Fundraising think tank to bring new thinking to fundraising from other disciplines

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 Advertisement Two projects a yearMacQuillin expects Rogare to undertake two major projects each year. Each will beging with the compilation of an inter-disciplinary literature review of the topic. This will then be discussed at a seminar by the think tank’s advisory board of fundraising practitioners, who are currently being recruited. They will then translate these ideas into practical applications, which will be published in special report.One of the first projects Rogare is likely to undertake will be a scoping study to identify current issues in fundraising that are under-researched which could benefit from fresh thinking and a new approach.  90 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 Fundraising think tank to bring new thinking to fundraising from other disciplinescenter_img Plymouth University’s Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy is to establish a fundraising think tank which will bring new ideas to fundraising and promote fresh approaches to fundraising problems and issues.The think tank is provisionally called ‘Rogare’, Latin for ‘to ask’. It has been developed by fundraising communications expert Ian MacQuillin, who today joins Plymouth University as its manager.Professor Adrian Sargeant, director of the Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy (CSP), explained:“Ian approached us last year with a proposal to establish a new think tank and I knew it would be a perfect fit with the CSP.“We are still finalising the think tank’s outputs, but the overall plan is that Rogare will tackle two issues of importance to the sector each year, promoting new and innovative solutions to existing issues”.Professor Sargeant added that the Centre’s research programme and the activities of Rogare should complement each other. The CSP would grow philanthropy through a better understanding of the drivers of philanthropy”, and Rogare would do the same “by developing a more nuanced understanding of the fundraising profession and the practice of philanthropy.”Ian MacQuillinIan MacQuillin is the former head of communications at the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association. He was editor of Professional Fundraising magazine from 2001-06 and then account director at fundraising public relations specialist TurnerPR. He writes for UK Fundraising.He explained why there is a need for a think tank for the fundraising profession, saying:“There is relatively little new thinking in fundraising to address some of the problems our sector faces, which means a lot of the time, ideas are simply recycled.“One of Rogare’s principle aims will be to look outside the charity sector to other academic disciplines, such as behavioural economics, professional ethics and evolutionary psychology, to see if there are ideas there that we can import and adapt to charity fundraising.” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
