Official Charity

Big Buddy 

Big Buddy is a charity that matches fatherless boys between 7 and 14 years of age with positive male role models, to encourage confidence, courage and happiness. The organisation has enjoyed a strong relationship with ITM since 2015, including some great benefits from an association with Supercars and the ITM Fishing Show. Partnerships like this help Big Buddy to grow and maintain its preventative service; what started as a mentoring programme to steer at-risk boys towards a better life, soon developed into a pathway for any boy whose father is permanently absent. Over the years, the kindness and commitment of over 800 mentors in Auckland, Waikato and Wellington has made a lasting impact on young men’s lives.
