Fish Out Your Coins For A Leukaemia Cure
Fish Out Your Coins For A Cure
Leukaemia & Blood Foundation Appeal Week 12 - 18 November 2002
Round it Up The Leukaemia and Blood Foundation is asking shoppers visiting New World supermarkets during the 12th - 17th November to 'Round Up' their grocery bill in support of its 'Coins for a Cure for Leukaemia' appeal. People can make a donation by asking checkout staff to round up their grocery bill by whatever amount they would like.
Jim Hamilton, Leukaemia & Blood Foundation said: "Round it Up' is a really easy way for people to get involved in appeal week and support the fight to find a cure for Leukaemia. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and the money raised goes some way towards making a difference to the lives of Leukaemia sufferers and their families."
Make A Bald Statement Those looking for a more daring way to show their support during appeal week can get involved in 'Shave for a Cure'. Last year Brett Arnold, a branch manager for Stevenson Massey, raised a staggering $10,000 for shedding his locks with the help of friends, family and his company. This year the hunt is on to find other individuals, companies or clubs who would like to take up the shave challenge and try and beat Brett's record.
People can either host their own event or go along to one of the official Shave for a Cure events, hosted by King of Shaves, and make a donation to have their head, eyebrows, legs, chest, in fact any part of their body shaved that is not too risqué.
Shave for a Cure Events: Auckland, LynnMall, New Lynn, 9th & 10th November Auckland, Botany Downs shopping Mall, 16th & 17th November Auckland Big Boys Toys, Show Grounds, 16th & 17th November Christchurch, Riccarton Shopping Mall, 16th & 17th November
Give a Little Time The Leukaemia and Blood Foundation is also looking for volunteers to help give out information to New World shoppers on the 'Round it Up' campaign as they enter the supermarket, and to support some of the other events that will be happening during Appeal Week.
