We’re decking the halls, we’re putting up the mistletoe, we’re making a list (and checking it twice)! It’s that time of year…The Great Christmas Giveback!

This holiday season, Stardome is embracing the spirit of giving by giving back to our customers and two important, local charities.

Bring along an item to donate to Auckland City Mission or SPCA Auckland and you’ll get into a regular planetarium show for only $6.

All shows from 17 November to 16 December will be discounted with a donated item, per ticket, to one of these two well-known Auckland charities.

Cash donations will be accepted for both organisations.

Auckland City Mission

The Mission was established in 1920 and provides services and support to Aucklanders in desperate need.

In 2017, the City Mission distributed 15,879 emergency food parcels to families and individuals in desperate need. These food parcels fed 51,000 Aucklanders providing them with 615,000 meals.

A whopping 4,623 of the parcels were given out in December alone, which is one of the hardest times of the year for the people the Mission works with.

SPCA Auckland

For over 130 years, SPCA Auckland has been providing a voice for animal welfare.

In the Auckland Animal Village in Mangere the SPCA care for between 16,000 and 18,000 animals that have been lost, abandoned, injured or abused. That’s a lot of hungry (cute!) mouths to feed.
