Well-known New Zealanders give us a glimpse of their families — and their feelings about parenthood — in a new book supporting of the Starship Children’s Hospital in Auckland.
‘For the Love of Our Kids,’ a bound photo book, has just gone on sale to the public at www.starship.org.nz/lovekids.
The book features photos of high-profile Kiwis like Lucy Lawless, Tiki Taane, Keven Mealamu, Jaquie Brown, Dame Trelise Cooper and Sir Peter Leitch with their own children — or Starship children.
There are also photos of patients and generous supporters with their families – and all with messages of what their children mean to them.
Justin Bieber and friend
There’s also a photograph of pop star Justin Bieber with a Starship patient on his visit to the children’s hospital in July.
And New Zealand’s Jaquie Brown features on the cover with her boy Leo – coincidentally on the day her new television series about the ins and outs of parenting launches on TV One.
This book, with images by photographer Michelle Carlson, is exclusively available through the Starship Foundation website at www.starship.org.nz/lovekids for $45 + postage.
Proceeds from the sale of ‘For the Love of Our Kids’ will go to the Starship Foundation to help fund care for thousands of children from around NZ who are treated at Starship every year.
ADVANCE ORDERS are being taken now for delivery in November
