Kidsline Badges Go on Sale

Media release 30 August 2012


Kidsline Badges Go on Sale

Six colourful badges designed in the Kidsline Great Big Badge Design Competition will be on sale from 3 September 2012.

The badges will retail for $2 each and will be sold exclusively in Farmers department stores throughout New Zealand until 12 September.

Hundreds of Kiwi kids entered the competition with four winning designs by Jordyn MacDonald (13, Wanaka), Loren Ford (9, Lower Hutt), Maya Kalbarczyk (12, Auckland) and Natasha Tate (12, Auckland) selected as winners.

Daily deal operator GrabOne along with Fashion Designer for World and competition judge Denise L’Estrange-Corbet have also created badge designs to be sold alongside the children’s designs.

One hundred per cent of the purchase price from each badge sold will go back to Kidsline to enable them to continue to provide support to the growing number of New Zealand children under 14 who call the service each year.

The Kidsline Great Big Badge Design Competition was created to encourage young Kiwis to openly share and talk about their feelings, and to communicate that having feelings of any kind is okay.
