Voting is open at Z Bowater Motors. It's easy. Let's get behind it and make a difference.

For all of May we can collectively vote for our favourite charities in this year's 2016 Z Good in the Hood.
Voting started on May 1st and goes for the entire month - and everyone that makes a purchase (excluding tobacco only purchases) can make a vote. Easy!
The charities all share a slice of a $4000 funding pie depending on your votes - the more votes a charity gets, the bigger their share of the pie.

How does Good in the Hood actually work? It's not that hard. Make a purchase and vote for your favourite charity. Matt walks us through it.

This year's Z Good in the Hood is looking great, with a fantastic range of charities in the mix at Z Rutherford in central Nelson.
We met up with most of the charities and shot a quick video to get to know the faces behind the voting chambers.

Today the always awesome Z Energy Good in the Hood got underway for the month at Z Rutherford. It's a great chance for us all to get involved with giving back to charities that really deserve it. Last week we got introduced.

The great thing about the Z Good in the Hood is that everybody's vote counts. You come in and make a purchase, you will get a token which gives you a vote. Your vote directly goes into the ratio for that charity for the final cut of the funding pie. The more times you shop, the more votes you will get, and the more votes or tokens a charity gets, the more funding they will receive at the end. It is that simple!
