Red Cross Annual Appeal

Annual Appeal 2014 - Your chance to make a difference!

Our Annual Appeal week is March 10–16th, 2014 and is an opportunity to have some fun raising money to help ensure Red Cross can respond immediately to disasters here in New Zealand and overseas.

Just one - two hours of your time can make a real difference.
