Why Onesie Day?

Onesie Day is Wellington Free Ambulance's annual appeal to raise money and help keep our emergency ambulance service free to everyone who needs us. It celebrates us being the only emergency ambulance service for Greater Wellington and Wairarapa and the only ones in New Zealand who are free.

We answer 107,000 calls for help and respond to 58,000 incidents every year. We look after 1 in 10 of your friends and family, ensuring we provide the best possible care to all those who need us.

Onesie Day encourages you to get involved by wearing a onesie, raising money and helping support your emergency ambulance service.

Take part at school, work or with friends and family. Ride the school bus in your onesie, go to a meeting in your onesie or even walk the dog in your onesie! You don't have to do it on 4 September, pick a day that suits you!

Join our event on Facebook and share with your friends and family to let them know what you're doing to support Wellington Free Ambulance this Onesie Day.

This year's onesie-ful heroes!
