Prime Minister John Key Artwork for Auction


New Zealand Prime Minister John Key has joined a long list of prominent identities who have donated items to the Christchurch fundraiser Stars4Kids. Mr Key has given an original signed drawing of the Beehive with an arrow pointing to the location of his office.

Stars4Kids was launched in May to raise funds for Avonside Girl’s High School and Shirley Primary, both badly damaged in the February earthquakes. Celebrities and famous identities including Donald Trump, Kylie Minogue, Alan Rickman, Geoffrey Rush and Miley Cyrus have donated signed items that have been auctioned through NZ’s #1 trading site Trade Me, so far raising over $12,000.

Organiser Mandy Cook said today “As long as I can keep getting memorabilia that money can’t normally buy, I’ll keep the fundraiser bubbling along. I’m always on the look-out for those big names, and if I have the means to contact them I’ll give it a shot. Most people are very happy to help.”

John Key’s drawing can be viewed on http://trade.me/stars4kids. The auction will end on Friday August 12 at 8.30pm.
