Dan Carter Trade Me Auction Nearing 100K Views

Dan Carter Trade Me Auction Nearing 100K Views


Prompts Other Celebrities to Chip in for Charity

Auckland, New Zealand – 29 July, 2014 – After a standout rugby weekend, Dan Carter’s Trade Meauction is set to break 100,000 views.

In a unique promotion called #iwantaGS5, Dan’s offering his old phone for sale after switching to the new Samsung GS5, with all proceeds going to the For Everyone charity.

“After hearing about the GS5 from Israel Dagg, who’s been on a Samsung for a while now, I made the switch and decided to see if I can raise a little money for charity at the same time,” says Dan.

“It’s great to see that nearly 100,000 Kiwis have had a look at the auction for my old phone and the more bids we get, the more we can give to For Everyone, helping Kiwis with all sorts of projects up and down the country.”

Now with bidding over $2,000, the auction for his old phone is also driving competition that’ll prove hard to beat.

Given his competitive spirit Dan’s also going head to head with comedian and DJ Ben Boyce from Jono and Ben at Ten and The Rock. Ben is also selling his old phone, and both are determined to raise more cash than the other.

“Dan thinks he’s nailed this one. But he’ll be training this week for the final and he’ll be taking his eye off the ball. I’m in,” says Ben. “It’s an auction of two halves and charity will be the winner on the day.”

As he did on the weekend, Dan got the last word in, “it’s all going to a good cause, so everyone’s a winner in the end. But there’s no way I’m losing this one.”

Max Rashbrooke: Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an extraordinary tale, blending a story of great solemnity, of elegant music and Masonic virtue overcoming hatred and discord, with elements of extreme silliness and pure fantasy. .. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
