Pink Ribbon Breakfast is Just Right for charity

Pink Ribbon Breakfast is Just Right for charity

Kellogg’s Just Right is pleased to announce it is the principal sponsor of the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation (NZBCF) Pink Ribbon Breakfast campaign.

The event encourages women around New Zealand to host their own fundraising breakfast at home, work or school throughout the month of May.

Proceeds from the campaign go towards breast cancer research and the NZBCF hopes New Zealanders will host more than 2,000 breakfasts. That’s a big jump on the 1,800 held last year that raised $750,000 with the help of the 55,000 New Zealanders taking part.

2014 marks the second year of the sponsorship for Kellogg’s, which supported the campaign last year with its Special K brand.

Kellogg's brand manager Abbie Malakai says it is a privilege to be working with the NZBCF team again on the event.

"We are so pleased to be able to help promote this wonderful fundraising event to our consumers and encourage them to have a ‘Just Right’ breakfast while getting behind a great cause,” Malakai says.

NZBCF Chief Executive Evangelia Henderson says Kellogg’s support for the Pink Ribbon Breakfast Campaign is helping the foundation get the word out around New Zealand, especially through the inclusion of the Pink Ribbon and information on the event on Just Right packs.

“We are hoping Kiwis will get behind the Pink Ribbon Breakfasts in a big way - it is an important campaign for us and we truly value the backing from Kellogg’s to help make it happen,” Henderson says.

It is free to register a breakfast event and consumers keen to be involved need to head to www.pinkribbonbreakfast.co.nz/register to get a host kit. Each contains a range of merchandise including a voucher to purchase Just Right cereal for a breakfast event.

To coincide with the sponsorship, Kellogg’s is also introducing a new product in the Just Right range - Sultanas, Currants, Apple & Almonds. The newcomer is Low GI, a great source of fibre and 54 per cent wholegrain.

Money raised from this year’s Pink Ribbon Breakfasts funds research projects to help improve the survivorship of breast cancer in New Zealand.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
