Red Cross Annual Appeal

Annual Appeal 2014 - Your chance to make a difference!

With our Annual Appeal just around the corner, here is your chance to give a few hours of your time to make a real 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.

The funds that you help raise also go towards supporting our local and international programmes which help communities prepare for emergencies and build resilence.

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

Scoop Review Of Books: From Here And There
