Who are we?
We’re just a bunch of ordinary folk motivating other ordinary folk… and some really EXTRAORDINARY folk… doing some really good stuff.
Why the Name? Because of that first fundraiser – Angels going bald. We’ve stayed doing the hairy stuff since then!
Our Māori name, Ngā Anahera Pākira was gifted to us by our kaumatua, Arena Munro.

In the BEST COMMUNITY in the WORLD! We’re so lucky to be based in The Bay of Islands, Te Tai Tokerau (Northland), Aotearoa (New Zealand). That’s home for us. But we reach our our tentacles like a friendly, huggy octopus all over the world.
Our piece of South Pacific paradise is dotted with pretty islands, with white sandy beaches, magnificent forests, rare wildlife (nothing that can harm you!) and mind-blowing landscapes with incredible people and an extraordinary spirit. Not bad, huh?
But, sadly, in Te Tai Tokerau we have possibly the highest cases of poverty in Aotearoa. We have the highest incidence of rheumatic fever and very little infrastructure to support the layout of our isolated communities. Public transport hardly exists. Surprisingly, many whānau (families) are living without running water and electricity. Access to services can often be problematic, in some cases, extremely difficult. Our region also has some of the highest rates of truancy, child deafness and tragically, youth suicide, in New Zealand and the western world.
Make a Difference
However, we are convinced that, in spite of the sad statistics above, we can truly claim WE HAVE THE BEST COMMUNITY in the world.
