NZ Post and Kiwibank support Red Cross Pacific Disaster Appeal


New Zealand Post and Kiwibank are encouraging people to donate to the New Zealand Red Cross emergency appeal to help communities affected by Cyclone Gita in Tonga, Samoa and Fiji.

New Zealand Red Cross is supporting local Red Cross teams on the ground through their Pacific Disaster Fund, helping to provide practical support including emergency shelter, water and sanitation supplies.

Donations can be made at any PostShop and Kiwibank branch, or can be paid into the Kiwibank Emergency Appeal account 38 9010 0620343 02, code: PacDisF.

New Zealand Post’s Head of Brand and Sponsorship Tina Morgan says, we are very pleased to offer our support and any money donated will go directly to the communities affected.

“We know Red Cross has the experience to help those most in need following the Cyclone, which has had such a devastating impact on our Pacific neighbours.”

"We encourage people to use the NZ Post and Kiwibank store network to make giving a donation easy”, Tina Morgan said.

As well as making a donation at a PostShop or Kiwibank, donations can be made online at www.redcross.org.nz/donate/, at any Red Cross service centre, by post to New Zealand Red Cross – Supporter Services, PO Box 12140, Thorndon, Wellington 6144, or by calling 0800 RED CROSS.
