News from Te Kiwi Māia (The Courageous Kiwi) – a new charitable trust, established by RNZN personnel. 

TKM’s purpose is to provide rehabilitation, respite and recovery for NZ Defence Force personnel and first responders, who have sustained physical or psychological injuries as a result of their role in safeguarding and caring for New Zealanders.

Our goal is to secure a facility where we can provide the support that is so desperately needed by the organisations listed below. 

To create brand awareness and raise funds, we have had a T-shirt designed by the very talented Royal NZ Air Force Corporal, Renee Thyne (@artbyreneethyne).

“My idea for the design was to promote mental wellness. The helmets represent the heads of our responders and the heart not only represents the health of those personnel but the support of the person wearing the shirt.” – Renee Thyne  

All Profits go to Te Kiwi Māia – to support NZDF and first responder organisations.

T-shirts available in black or white. Toddler through to adult sizing. Female and male styles.

$30-$35 each.

To purchase one (or more!) of our T-shirts, visit Email for your orders and account details. 

(Please note, this is a pre-sale, so delivery of t-shirts will begin in August).

Or, if you’d like to make a donation, please visit

Lastly, if funds are not an option, then simply following us on Facebook and Instagram, or sharing our cause with your friends would be greatly appreciated!
