KNOW A YOUNG KIWI WHO'S GOING THROUGH HELL – OR ONE WHO'S HELPING OTHERS OUT OF A HELLISH SITUATION?

As a young-at-heart and fun-loving Kiwi-owned business, HELL loves to see young New Zealanders doing well. So when we hear about kids having a tough time, we’ll try to make a difference wherever we can.

 

That’s why Satan’s Little Helper was sent on his quest to cut a break for good young souls struck down by the big guy in the sky.

 

We also know there are many others out there fighting the good fight, and so we’ve launched Satan’s Biggest Little Helper to recognise under-23-year-olds going above and beyond to help create a better future for others.

 

If you know of any under-18s worthy of un-divine intervention, or would like to recognise the hard toil of an under 23-year-old who’s gone the extra mile, nominate them now and SLH will see what he can do to help and support them.

  • Let the children play

    Satan’s Little Helper is a playful character, so he jumped at the chance to help Rangiora Toy Library (RTL) in its mission to improve children’s education through play – by providing $480 in HELL vouchers.

     

     

    Half that amount in dollars was needed for RTL to reach its target to buy new shelves and improve the centre’s limited space.

     

    “We sold the vouchers at half price and they proved wildly popular,” says RTL vice president and secretary Lizzy Anderson. “We could have sold three times as many!”

     

    Established more than 20 years ago, the community-run RTL is funded through a combination of subscription fees, donations, grants, and fundraisers.

     

    Lizzy says that everyone involved is very thankful for HELL’s support.

     

    “We’ve got the shelves installed now. They’ve made a significant difference to the library, because now we can safely store our larger toys and there’s also more space for the children to play.

     

    “Not all families have access to toys at home; we’re an affordable alternative with more than 1,000 different items available to our members.”

  • Sophie Griffiths highly commended for selfless acts

    Sophie, from Pukekohe, was selected as the only other finalist for Satan’s Biggest Little Helper 2017.

     

    At just ten years old, Sophie proves that age is no barrier when it comes to helping those less fortunate. As part of a school project called Genius Hour, where students lead their own learning and are given basic criteria to plan from, Sophie took ‘making a difference to others’ to the next level.

     

    Sophie took it upon herself to fundraise for toys and food to fill the Salvation Army’s Christmas hampers.

     

    As well as showing she has a big heart, Sophie demonstrated great initiative and confidence by approaching a number of businesses to support her efforts, including HELL Pizza through its Satan’s Little Helper website.

     

    HELL general manager Ben Cumming says: “We are delighted to award Sophie a commendation for her kind-hearted actions. It is young Kiwis like Sophie and Eva – our overall winner – who inspired us to create Satan’s Biggest Little Helper.

     

    “We realised that there are a number of young people out there going above and beyond to help create a future for others, some of them even while facing difficulties of their own.”

     

    Sophie received $200 HELL vouchers and a framed certificate as a reward. If you know someone you think qualifies for Satan’s Biggest Little Helper, nominate them here!

  • A small ‘thank you’

    Living through post-natal depression (PND) can be one of the most overwhelming, frightening and debilitating experiences a parent can have. Support groups such as Postnatal Depression Canterbury do invaluable work in helping young families find their feet. To allow the Christchurch-based group of eight volunteers and their organiser Sonya Watson some much-needed downtime, Satan’s Little Helper shouted them to a night of free HELL pizza.

     

    After developing and overcoming PND following the birth of her first child, Jack, seven years ago, Sonya became inspired to help other families through the illness. The organisation receives no government grants and is funded entirely by donations, charity grants and fundraisers.

     

    Sonya says the struggle for funding makes it really difficult to organise ‘thank you’ events for the volunteers, which is why she contacted Satan’s Little Helper.

     

    “I’d send them all on a holiday if I could!” says Sonya. “HELL’s support is hugely appreciated. The pizza night was great and everyone really enjoyed themselves, which was awesome. The local HELL Sydenham franchisee even came out to make sure everything was going well!”

  • Priceless pony party!

    Nine-year-old Eleanor Marshall hasn’t had the easiest ride in life, so Satan’s Little Helper decided to organise some quality time in the saddle to help the young animal lover celebrate her birthday 

     

    Eleanor, who was born with several challenging conditions, including limited upper body strength, has always loved animals.

     

    Her kind spirit extends to helping raise money for the local soup kitchen and she even sacrificed her Christmas presents last year in favour of putting together a care package for the Salvation Army store in Porirua. 

     

    To help celebrate her ninth birthday, Satan’s Little Helper organised a party for Eleanor and her friends at Thompson’s Horse Centre, with plenty of HELL pizza on hand to feed the hungry young riders.

     

    Eleanor says they all had a lot of fun.   

     

    “I got to ride the biggest horse and we all pretended to be cowgirls and cowboys when we rode around the farm. We had lots of yummy food and mummy made me a My Little Pony cake – it was tasty!” she says.

     

    Her mother Joanne says that as well as the sheer joy of it, horse riding is also physically beneficial for Eleanor.

     

    “Because of her condition, she’s limited in what activities and sports she can do without feeling pain. Horse riding actually helps her build up her strength because of the way you have to sit,” says Joanne. “All the kids really enjoyed themselves and it was awesome to see.”

     

    Eleanor can look forward to horsing around again in the near future, as Satan’s Little Helper organised some extra lessons at Thompson’s to help her further develop her strength – and simply enjoy herself!

  • HELL spreads yellow fever!

    While the Wellington Phoenix had to fight for a 2-2 draw against the Western Sydney Wanderers FC at Mt Smart Stadium in December, Hamilton’s Dylan Francis walked away from the game a winner thanks to some slick playmaking from Satan’s Little Helper.  

     

    Dylan has mild Asperger’s, which affects social interaction, and lost his father to cancer at a young age. After hearing the 12-year-old’s story from his stepfather Matt Faber, HELL organized a special package for the keen football fan. 

     

    Along with four tickets to the Mt Smart match, Dylan was given a training ball signed by the Phoenix squad and the chance to meet some of his favourite players after the final whistle; this included having his photo taken with captain Andrew Durante and his jersey signed by midfielder Adam Parkhouse.  

     

    Matt said Dylan had a fantastic time and was stoked to receive this special treat from HELL.

     

    “He was all smiles and just had an absolute blast; it was a great boost for him.”

     

    To top it off, Matt said it was a good game to watch, with the Phoenix knocking in two late goals to even the score.

     

    “And I have to say, the first Wanderers’ goal [scored by Brendon Santalab] was one of the best I’ve seen in the A-League for a long time!”
