What is Good in the Hood?
There's more information about Good in the Hood online, but in summary, in 2013 every Z station will be giving away $5,000 to neighbourhood groups and projects which help people who need it. We have 210 stations so that’s over $1 million across New Zealand to do good in the hood.

Of this $5,000 per Z station, $4,000 will be distributed amongst four neighbourhood groups or projects who successfully apply to be part of Good in the Hood. It will be split according to the number of customer votes they receive during the voting period.

The remaining $1,000 will be used by the local retailers throughout the year to support other neighbourhood events.
