Just Because Pamper Packs

The aim of Just Because is to present two Pamper Packs per week to women experiencing challenging times within New Zealand.

A Just Because Pamper Pack is a beautifully presented gift pack designed to spoil a woman struggling through a difficult time and in need of pampering. It comprises of a combination of beauty products, vouchers, decadent food and other items designed to bring joy to the face of a woman in need.

Who is the target group?

Just Because Pamper Packs are for women experiencing challenging times. This could include new mothers, women suffering depression, isolation, marital problems, a woman in need of thanks who does so much for others; or simply women in need of something special during difficult times in their lives.

Why I have started this charity?

I have been involved in a similar project in Australia which started 9 years ago and is still going strong. I attended the Oprah Roadshow in December 2015, and came away wanting to give back to the Community. After much thought as to what I could do, I started this charity.

I am a registered nurse, a wife and mother who has personally seen women struggling with life, and I’ve also been a woman in need at various stages in my life. I’ve encountered several road bumps including suffering from severe Post Natal Depression, several episodes of depression, raising a child with special needs, looking after family members with depression and suicidal episodes, dealing with the death of a best friend, and I am a survivor of sexual abuse and domestic violence. There were many days, weeks and months I struggled with life. I want women to know they are not alone and that people do care.
Just Because.
