Show Your Support Kiwi Kids This Christmas

Be First To Show Your Support Kiwi Kids This Christmas

Christmas cards will be in hot demand this year as The Warehouse unveils their charity range next Wednesday 10 September, all in the aide of a great cause, Variety-The Children’s Charity.

Once again this Christmas, New Zealanders will have the opportunity to help Kiwi kids with special needs to realise their life goals by purchasing specially branded Variety Christmas cards through The Warehouse stores nationwide.

With over 15 designs featuring traditional and contemporary imagery, all competitively priced at five dollars for a pack of ten cards and envelopes, the card release gives families and businesses time to ensure their festive messages are sent in time for Christmas.

Proceeds from the sale of the Variety Christmas cards sale will go towards the 2009 Variety Gold Heart Scholarship programme, designed to help New Zealand children facing serious personal challenge achieve in the areas of sport, education, music and the arts.

Lorraine Taylor, Variety CEO, urges Warehouse customers to choose Variety Christmas cards to send this year.

“We are thrilled that our Variety Christmas cards are available at all 85 Warehouse stores from Kaitaia to Invercargill,” says Lorraine.

“We understand that 90% of all New Zealanders visit the Warehouse in the weeks leading up to Christmas and their support will enable Variety to help foster the talents of many young New Zealanders who are sick, disabled or disadvantaged.”

Stu Yorston, General Manager Marketing for The Warehouse, says the Variety Christmas cards are a fantastic way to send Christmas wishes to friends and family while supporting such a great cause.

“The Variety Christmas cards are an integral part of our extensive Christmas range and we are proud to support Variety in providing assistance to New Zealand children in need from communities where our customers live,” says Stu.

The Variety Gold Heart Scholarship programme makes available to each recipient a maximum of $5,000 per year for up to three years. This may include assisting with tuition fees, personal development, coaching, purchase of training equipment, travel or accommodation. Leading professionals and celebrities are also matched with the recipients to mentor them in their chosen pursuits.

Applications for the 2009 Variety Gold Heart Scholarship Fund will open later this year. For more information visit
