Stop the Bus is an interactive documentary that aims to unify us as New Zealanders in valuing our children. This journey and film itself will showcase stories of people doing amazing things in their communities that contribute to combating our issue of child abuse. Our aim is to empower and educate others as to what we can do at the grassroots with the idea that ‘Small acts of kindnesses can be as powerful as big systems’ (The People's Blueprint ‐ Transforming the way we deal with family violence, 2014). Ultimately, this documentary will contribute to actual changing (and saving) the lives of many kiwi kids at risk as we as a country rise up together to tackle our problem of abuse.

All funds raised will go to the Stop the Bus Charitable Trust, which is managed by independent Trustees. All money raised is required to be put towards charitable purposes in New Zealand. This is likely to include a contribution to budgeted filming and travel costs, so we can raise awareness of child abuse in New Zealand and support the people and groups in our communities who are promoting the wellbeing of children. The Trust also expects to make donations directly to those people and organisations we showcase in the documentary, where their projects could do with a boost. Donation decisions will be made by the Trustees of Stop the Bus Charitable Trust.
