Support Cure Kids with a Red Nose

Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga, MP for Maungakiekie encourages you to wear your Red Nose on Friday 19 November to support Cure Kids, as part of Red Nose day.

Red Nose Day was first held in New Zealand in 1989 and was last held in 1997. Cure Kids is bringing back Red Nose Day this year to help raise funds for vital medical research into all illnesses affecting Kiwi kids.

“The goal for Red Nose Day in 2010 is to raise $1 million for Cure Kids, to provide hope and support through crucially funded research for children who suffer from life-threatening diseases,” Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga says.

“I fondly remember Red Nose Day and will be wearing a red nose this Friday to raise awareness for a great cause that makes a real difference to the lives of Kiwi families.”

Donations can be made to any collector on the streets on Friday 19 November. You can also purchase a red nose, car nose or red nose badge from your local Paper Plus, Take Note store or Shell station.

You can also download the new version of the Red Nose Day song You Make the Whole World Smile by Annika Moa from iTunes, or through Truetones via Vodafone and Telecom.
