Pledge website available for businesses keen to contribute

Pledge website available for businesses keen to contribute goods and services

Posted on Thursday, March 3, 2011 by canterburyearthquake| Comments Off

A web portal where businesses and not-for-profit organisations can
pledge goods and services of use to other businesses or the Christchurch
community has been established on
http://pledge.canterburyearthquake.org.nz/

The site is intended for larger scale goods and services that Civil
Defence can arrange to distribute for a specific community need.
Pledges made through this site will be collated by Civil Defence staff
to match needs identified by the many agencies working on earthquake
recovery in Christchurch.

Donations of money can be made through New Zealand Red Cross and smaller
goods and services that do not require Civil Defence to become involved
can be offered through the informal Trade Me: Christchurch
Earthquake Support
.
