THE PASSING OF CHLOE WRIGHT
It is with much sadness we acknowledge the death of Chloe Wright in September 2023. Chloe was co-founder of the Wright Family Foundation, a charitable trust, Chloe was a huge advocate for mothers and babies and her life's work revolved around this, leaving a lasting legacy. The Wright Family Foundation and Chloe Wright were a major funder and supporter of the book Earlybird, a children's book published by the Champion Foundation Trust. For those of you not familiar with Earlybird, it tells the story of Peri the Pukeko who was born a little too early and details his birth story, resonant with the birth story of many premature babies born in New Zealand. Earlybird is provided free of charge to families with a premature baby in one of the six NICUs throughout New Zealand as well as being sold online through the Champion Foundation Trust website (see www.championfoundation.co.nz). All profits from the sale of Earlybird go to the Champion Centre. It was through Chloe Wright's support, her belief in the book, and funding from the Wright Family Foundation that enabled this book to be published.
Wishing you and your whānau a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. See you all in 2024!
