January’s UPDATE asks, “Will you give families the thumbs-up? Your donation will be well-spent, we promise you. And struggling Kiwi families will truly get value-for-money …”
June’s UPDATE shares an appalling statistic: “$1.2 million dollars an hour – that’s how much the Government is spending via social welfare, every hour of every day, trying to fix the mess this country is in because the family has fallen apart!” (If only we could get our hands on one-hour’s worth of that budget!)
And as the months slip by, Grapevine stays true to its mission, “giving families a lift”: 'KIDS THESE DAYS! (MAKING THEM MIND WITHOUT LOSING YOURS)' … 'BOUNDARIES: THE POWER OF NO!' … 'THE FORGOTTEN ART OF RAISING BOYS' … 'HAPPILY EVER AFTER! WHAT MAKES MARRIAGES LAST?'
