Smart Pack Giving Back – Help Boost Jamie to Berlin!

This week we start off Smart Pack Giving Back 2023 with Theo, our Production all-rounder. Theo has chosen to donate to his good friend Jamie Davidson, who was recently selected to represent NZ in athletics at the Special Olympics in Berlin, and now needs to raise $16,000 to get there in June!

A message from Jamie…

My name is Jamie Davidson. I am 24 years old and have down syndrome. I live in Pahiatua with my Mum. You may have seen that I have recently been selected to represent NZ at the Special Olympics World Games in Berlin, in June 2023, in the sport of athletics.

I am going to be fundraising over the next few months to raise the $16,000 required and am seeking any possible funding support to make this a reality.

My fund raising is starting with a wood raffle. I am about to start splitting wood to enable me to sell some loads. I would like to hold a quiz night and put together further raffles. In addition, I am going to be making my wooden spoons to sell too.

I am hoping to gain support from local businesses who may be able to offer financial assistance or donations of goods or vouchers that can be included in raffles or as quiz prizes, or help to raise my profile through social media.

Theo and the Smart Pack team wish Jamie all the best for his fundraising efforts as well as his Special Olympics Journey.

If you too would like to assist Jamie’s journey, contact –  Jean Davidson (Jamie’s Mum) on 027 340 2058 or
