Kiwis Help To Repaint Samoa

Kiwis Help To Repaint Samoa

Paint donations have flooded into Resene PaintAid to help rebuild Samoa. Thanks to the generosity of everyday New Zealanders and paint donations from Resene, over 8,000 litres of paint, sufficient to paint around 100,000 square metres of area, has been collected and shipped to Samoa, together with donations of rollers and brushes from Paint Aids Ltd and the Haydn Brush Company.

Now that the paint has reached Samoa, Unicef are working to distribute the paint to local Samoan projects in need.

Resene PaintAid was started in late 2009 in conjunction with Unicef to enable New Zealanders to return good quality unwanted paint to Resene ColorShops for use on Samoan projects. The paint was collected via the Resene PaintWise service, which has collected over 500,000 containers in the last three years and donated over 60,000 litres of paint to a wide variety of local community projects, such as covering graffiti. Resene PaintWise is an ongoing nationwide paint and paint packaging recovery service available through most Resene ColorShops.
