The winner of this auction gets to keep the BLUE family and is purchasing the green family for Taite's family.

All proceeds of this auction will go to Taite Lentfer's 'Give A Little' fund.

Taite is a 9 year old boy. He should be in my daughters class at school. He should be in the soccer team I am coaching. I can see his house from my studio. He should be there, but he is not. About 3 months ago he was admitted to Starship Hospital and they found out he has ADEM - an auto immune disease. He got sick real fast with his immune system attacking the cells in his brain and reducing muscle function to nothing. Taite and family (Dad Kori, Mum Lanie and sister Holly) are living away from home at Takapuna's Wilson Centre where Taite is receiving lots of therapy. He has come a long way, he now has some muscle movement and can even smile, but he has such a long way to go, with lots of ongoing care required from family and specialists.
