Annah Stretton to give $30k to Charity

Annah Stretton to give $30k to Charity

Nominate Your Local Charity Now

Annah Stretton 10 Days of Christmas Donations kicks off Saturday 14th December with $30,000 up for grabs for your local charity.

Starting on Saturday 14th and ending on Christmas Day fashion designer and entrepreneur, Annah Stretton is taking nominations for deserving charitable organizations throughout New Zealand to receive up to $3000 each as recognition of their service to their local community. We will select one charity a day during our 10 Days of Christmas Donations.

“There is no better time than Christmas to identify those who are providing unrewarded and often unrecognised essential services. Without the actions of these groups we would see so many less well off during the happiest time of the year,” Stretton says. “The 10 Days of Christmas Donations is my small way of helping these good Samaritans continue the work they do.

“We’re calling on everyone to tell us which charity they believe deserves a $3000 cash injection to help them in the New Year. We’re looking for the less recognized charities – groups that don’t have an annual appeal day or regular funds from the Government.”

Do you know a charitable organization in your community that deserves a $3000 gift this Christmas?
