we the people.



Sarah and Danika opening the first ever #theperiodplace activation - the big smiles hide the nerves! Find out more about our free public activation  here .


Sarah has worked with communities, individuals and organisations alike to identify needs, prototype solutions for change and implement ideas.

She is utterly nuts for social research and is constantly thinking about opportunities for change and ways to help those who have limited resources to help themselves.


Danika ran her own social marketing business before her first son was born, and launched influencer marketing in NZ after seeing the gap in the market.

Cutting her teeth on doing the marketing for global brands, she's now proud to be working on her own project - one that she knows is going to benefit people all around New Zealand.



Kia ora to everyone who has contributed to the mahi so far.
