Thank you very much for your kind donation!

Thank you! Gracias! Merci! Danke schön!

Thank you in so many ways – with your help, we raised US$7,757.00 (close to NZ$11,000) to help build the Weta and ship her to Black Rock City, Nevada and back! Your support and your help is greatly appreciated by The Giant Weta crew – thank you for being a patron of our art project! It fills our hearts with joy.

The team are putting the hours in after work each night as well as all weekend and she is really taking shape.

Did you claim a reward? We’ll be in touch soon regarding your preferences (where relevant). If you’re going to Burning Man this year, come and see what you helped make happen!

We didn’t quite make our fundraising goal, though as well as you, we reached thousands of people through our social media efforts, raised awareness of the project and help educate folk outside of New Zealand what a weta is! (Hippathy Valentine is interviewed on Radio New Zealand about The GIant Weta and art at Burning Man).

Maybe you have friends who are interested and forgot to donate before the cut off date? We’ve started a new local campaign on Givealittle with an open target.

You can follow our build progress through the Facebook page or the Updates section on our Givealittle Page, and find more information on our website.

Thank you for supporting the arts.
