A WARM WELCOME
Kia ora, we are Angela and Theresa Gattung, and our foundation was born out of our sisterhood and a shared spirit to enable others.
Our hearts lead us to want to give back; to make a difference; to redress inequalities we see around us; and to use our skills and resources to make. real. change.
We call it the heart effect because we support causes that touch us deeply, but we believe just as strongly in effectiveness. Put the two together and you can create ripples of change for a stronger Aotearoa New Zealand.
“Very often we think making big changes in the world needs a big action. But each of us doing what we can in our communities can have a profound impact.” Theresa

“What kind of world will we leave our descendents if we model lack of care and discommunity? What is the most important thing in the world? He aha te mea nui o te ao? It’s people, it’s people, it’s people. He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata." Angela
