Telecom supply official txt-to-donate service for New Zealand Red Cross 2011 Earthquake Appeal

Telecom has partnered with the New Zealand Red Cross to supply the official txt-to-donate fundraising service for the New Zealand Red Cross 2011 Earthquake Appeal.

Users of all New Zealand mobile networks can text 4419 to make an automatic $3 donation to the Appeal.

New Zealanders can also include a message of support for the people of Canterbury which will be publicly broadcast.

To ensure 100% of the donation will make its way to the Appeal, Telecom is providing this service free-of-charge.

Telecom has worked together with Vodafone, 2degrees and Run the Red who have also agreed to waive revenue and costs on this service.

Please ask the bill payer first before donating.

Telecom continues to urge people within the Canterbury region to conserve their phones for emergency purposes only.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
