Vodafone Red Alert TXT Donate

24 February 2011

Vodafone Red Alert TXT Donate

Following Tuesday’s devastating earthquake in Christchurch, Vodafone is once again partnering with The New Zealand Red Cross to provide essential support for those who need it. Vodafone customers can donate either $3 or $5 to the cause by TXTing ‘Quake’ to either 333 ($3 donation) or 555 ($5 donation). 100% of all donations will go to the NZ Red Cross 2011 Earthquake Appeal. This appeal will help people whose homes, livelihoods and wellbeing have been affected by this most recent disaster. Progress on their work can be found at: www.redcross.org.nz

Vodafone has opened this fund with a $500,000 donation, which comprises £100,000 from the Vodafone Group Foundation and the balance from Vodafone New Zealand.

Due to the large number of New Zealand expats in the UK, Vodafone UK has also set up a free text donation number for Vodafone UK customers wishing to donate to the NZ Red Cross 2011 Earthquake Appeal. Vodafone UK customers are able to make a £5 donation to the NZ Red Cross 2011 Earthquake Appeal. The TXTs are free and the Vodafone Foundation will donate an additional £1 for every £5 donation made, up to a total of £100,000.

For further up-to-date information on how Vodafone can assist with your communication needs we are encouraging customers to go to http://forum.vodafone.co.nz/topic/7340-christchurch-earthquake-support/
