Vote for your favourite charity!

The theme for this year's Thankyou Payroll NZ VA Awards is 'Doing Good' and part of that is supporting a NZ charity or NFP on the night.

Giving back, doing good and being kind are some of the core values of Aotearoa's virtual assistant community and just one way we'll be showcasing this at this year's awards is by selecting a charity to support.

And we need your help to pick just ONE!!!

Vote for the charity you feel is most deserving of our support this year. We know it's a tough choice, which is why we can't make it alone!

We know it's going to be REALLY hard, but only one vote per person is allowed.
