Hallensteins Teams with Make a Wish for Holidays

Tick two boxes with one Christmas present this year by gifting a Hallensteins special edition t-shirt. You'll be giving an awesome designer t-shirt and the best part is that you'll be contributing $10 directly towards making wishes come true for New Zealand children with life-threatening illnesses.

Joining forces with some of New Zealand's top designers and artists to create a t-shirt range with a difference, Hallensteins has nominated Make-A-Wish New Zealand to receive $10 from every t-shirt sold from the collection.

Contributing artist, Otis Frizzell is excited about putting his talent to good use for the cause. "Make-A-Wish is a cool charity and if my design blows up it'll earn them loads of cash! Kai Pai!"

Other names involved in the collaboration are Federation, Stephen Richardson, Derek Henderson, Shine, Glennz, Jonny Kofoed and Inhouse, who all have t-shirts in the collection, which will be available in Hallensteins stores from now until Christmas.

A further special edition range is available exclusively online with designers from Brotown illustrators, Cut Collective, Ian Ferguson, and Studio Alexandar ( ).

Make-A-Wish has set up a wish pool, guaranteeing that exactly 100% of the $10 raised by the sale of each t-shirt will be spent directly on granting wishes. The funds raised from the campaign will be put to great use, making wishes come true for some extremely deserving children around the country.

Scott Simpson, CEO for Make-A-Wish NZ explains, "Having a wish come true is magical for a child, especially a child who is ill. Make-A- Wish is all about laughter, fun and creating happy memories; a welcome respite for these seriously ill children and their families."

Available from the 16th of November in Hallensteins stores nationwide for $39.99, all you™ll wish for Christmas is that someone reads this and buys one for you too!
