In response to many requests, I am sharing an excel template that we use within our own whānau, that may be helpful for those who are unsure, or new to being involved in supporting whanau during tangihanga 'in the back'.
This template is a linked Microsoft Excel Workbook, that will help you to keep track of Koha received, expenses, non cash koha, and support received during a tangihanga. This excel template should then hopefully make it easier for yourself and your whānau to report back/ provide an update to the whānau pani following the tangi.
Please use the video below to follow how to use the workbook if you are not familiar with Microsoft Excel. I don't often use Google Sheets - but Im assuming it should open in Google sheets also!
Please note I am still working on the pouri keepsake & notebook and hope to release these rauemi before Matariki this year. Thank you for your interest and support in bringing a sensitive, but needed resource like this to life. Ngā mihi.
With many whanau struggling - even more so when it comes to tangihanga, this will help them focus during this time of sadness - thank you
Thank you, Geneva,
This is such a helpful resource, especially for whanau like me who have never had to take the lead or organize tangihanga.
I have been thinking about something similar and so I found this resource awesome to help with my ideas. Thanks Tuhi for your contribution to communities. Your Awesome!
This will assist a lot of whaanau especially those that have never experienced the organisational side of a tangihanga.
