#DearNewZealand

I love this campaign. It speaks to the heart of an issue of fundamental importance: how do we create a strong, robust future society. Our children are that future. I submitted this to the #DearNewZealand website today.

I would solve child poverty by creating a culture where every kid has what they need, for free. Shelter, clothes, food, learning environments, safety and love. All these things should be provided for free by the Government.

How to pay for it? With the savings it would create in health, mental health, justice and other systemic industries that exist to treat the effects of child poverty.

It's a no-brainer. It doesn't need thought. We just need the courage to do it.

Thank you, Lizzie Marvelly, for championing this.
