“Nourished for Nil” Fundraiser

Origin Earth owner and director, Joanie Williams, is in training for the 36th IRONMAN Taupo on 7 March 2020.

Joanie would love you to sponsor her with all donations going to the local non-profit organisation Nourished for Nil whose mission is to rescue food that would otherwise go to waste and redistribute it to the Hawke's Bay community.

When asked “Why IRONMAN? And Why Nourished for Nil?” Joanie replied “IRONMAN – it happened by chance, in mid- May a good friend of mine Sarah came into Origin Earth for her milk bottle refills and happened to mention that she was doing IRONMAN Taupo in March 2020 and suggested that we do it together. I said, ‘Let me think about it’ then almost immediately said ‘Yes’! So, I was in and committed and started training the very next day. Now, those that know me, know that I love a challenge, well this is a “real challenge”. Training is coming along, but I’ve got a long way to go!

As for Nourished for Nil, they are already a charity that Origin Earth supports, and I wanted my IRONMAN challenge to have a purpose.

I am hoping that our customers both retail and wholesale, as well as our suppliers, will get behind me and spread the word so that this very worthwhile organisation can benefit from my efforts and receive much needed funds to enable them to keep doing their great work.

We have set up a ‘Give a Little’ page which links directly to Nourished for Nil, so you know that your donation is going directly to them. It also means we and them can track the donations made to this challenge and we will be able to keep you updated on how donations are progressing and give you the grand total at the end!”

Joanie is hoping to raise at least $3,000.
