Liz Quiltyi dont deserve it, but my son has had some mega hard times over the last few years, kicked some bad habits, and finally got his life sorted Gone from living on the streets to being a dad and having a job. He needs something so he can take his son camping now 🙂

Kiley LewisBeing a scout mum with 6 scouting kids. One 4 man tent doesnt cut and half us have to sleep in the back of the car so would love another tent for the 3 eldest boys to share.

Jordyn ShieldsKerry-Lee Webber needs this because she's such a loving & giving person who has no problem being our 3rd wheel on our lil geeky camping trips...but the issue is she doesn't have a tent and this is a perfect tent for her and her king size air bed 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Ados FriarI have taken over my husband's phone while he isn't looking he deserves this so much our now four year old daughter was diagnosed with cancer nearly a year to the day ago and it has been absolute hell we have been between Gisborne and Auckland for chemo and surgery and the fight isn't over yet. My husband came with us when he could but there are times we he couldn't or can't as we needed him to go to work to keep our family afloat and going. It has been hard on him having to stay behind. Now things have slowed down a little he deserves to do more of what he loves which is hunting but his two man tent leaks and we can't afford a new one so this would be perfect! Hope he doesn't mind I took over his phone thanks heaps Erin Friar...for you Ados Friar

Charlotte PaulSo if i was to win this, it would not be for me as such, more you son, who is not getting any smaller has ADHD and needs his own space to be able to calm down and relax and seriously what kid will want to share a tent with their parents when they get older. i know that i would not of wanted too, so this would be amazing for when we go camping (a yearly thing during January) that my son and probably a mate of his could sleep in and be their own little domain away from annoying Little sister. and as we have a Kiwi Camping tent already and love it, we would love to have the same brand but smaller tent too (great brand and easy to use would not go anywhere else now). Thank you so much for the chance, and Good luck everyone else. 🙂 🤞
