Christmas Looking Up For Chickens

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Christmas Looking Up For Chickens

After dancing about on thousands of New Zealanders computer screens this week it's not surprising that Oxfam has a new leader in the race for Christmas number one - chickens have flown into the lead.

On Monday, Oxfam New Zealand released an Unwrapped viral music video, featuring many of the stars of the alternative Christmas catalogue, including the popular chooks.

"The response to our Christmas music video has been outstanding" commented Scott Young, Oxfam's Direct Marketing Manager. "Its success has really given the chickens a lift, but I don't think the goats have given up yet I am expecting a huge comeback."

Goats are still in contention for the title, while Donkeys have finally gotten up of their asses and are making a charge for the finish.

In addition, hundreds of children have been bought their Christmas meal and there is many a glass of safe, clean water now available to wash it down.

Oxfam Unwrapped is proving a hit for those people looking for their last minute Christmas gifts, and a fun alternative for the office 'Secret Santa'. There is still plenty of time to get your gift prior to Christmas delivery is guaranteed if ordered prior to 18th December 2006.

Oxfam Unwrapped is a way to give something special to your friends and family while giving something extra special to people who haven't got much at all. When you buy a gift from Oxfam Unwrapped your donation will be used to fund Oxfam's projects throughout the Pacific, Asia, and Africa, ensuring that it has the biggest possible impact on the lives of people living in poverty. Your friends will receive a card detailing the present you bought them, and they'll be damn thankful they won't have to find more space in the sock drawer.
