On the May 16th, in response to the high and increasing numbers of homeless families with children living in cars and garages, John Key said: “This is not the New Zealand we want and it is not acceptable.”
Then, on Budget Day May 26th John Key and his Government did absolutely nothing of meaning to prioritise ending family poverty, and get people into homes.
The gap between the Government’s words and the Government's deeds when it comes to ending poverty is astounding. We need to remind MPs that what we - the voters - want is: less conversation and more action. We need to call the Government out.
Right now, we are working with the best media buyers to book strategic, highly prominent street posters (and if we can raise enough billboards) in the areas surrounding Parliament and near the infamous Backbenchers pub where we know MPs walk.
Will you help fund a street poster campaign like they’ve never seen? Each A0 poster costs $5 for design, print & placement, so the more money we can raise, the more resourced our campaign, the more posters and billboards we’ll be able to purchase.

Where does ActionStation get its money from?
ActionStation is independent and member led - we don't accept money from government, political parties or big business.
We rely on donations from our members to make our campaigns happen. From time to time we’ll ask our members to fund a specific campaign or a specific action (e.g. to pay for the costs of an advertisement or billboard). All donations generated by these are used for that specific project. If for any reason we are unable to spend the money on the action for which it was raised we give our members the option to get a refund, or to choose how they would like to have the money used instead.
Since launching in 2014, we have also received some money from charitable trusts and foundations. The bulk of our start up funding came from Global Green Grants.
We are a very lean organisation. Our staff team is small, with one sole purpose - to build and run winning campaigns on issues our members care about. Our operating budget is funded entirely by small donations from members.
