TVNZ Gives Back to the Community – Free Airtime Awarded to Charities
TVNZ today announced the recipients for the TVNZ Community Support Foundation for 2005/2006.
For over 20 years TVNZ has provided millions of dollars worth of airtime to help not- for-profit or charitable organisations promote their services and educate New Zealanders to build a better community.
This year, the TVNZ Community Support Foundation recipients were selected on the basis of values that align with TVNZ's corporate social responsibility and marketing objectives, emphasising health, welfare, youth and the environment.
The recipients of the TVNZ Community Support Foundation airtime this year are:
- New Zealand Association of Citizens Advice Bureaux - New Zealand Blood Service - Literacy Aotearoa - Royal New Zealand Plunket Society - Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand - Sir Peter Blake Trust - Neighbourhood Support New Zealand Inc. - Diabetes New Zealand - Youthline Charitable Trust
Youthline is a past and current recipient of the Community Support Foundation, and is pleased to work with TVNZ again:
"We are thrilled to be honoured with the opportunity presented to us by TVNZ. Youthline is about connecting with young people and supporting them to develop their potential. Our partnership with TVNZ enables us to reach so many more young people, supporting them when they need it and fostering leadership skills in communities across the country," says Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Bell.
