There’s only five days left for school children to head into their local Paper Plus or Take Note store to take part in the nationwide fundraising efforts for the Red Nose Day for Cure Kids.
All children are invited to visit their local Paper Plus where, for gold coin donations, they can get Red Nose Day goodies including those famous red noses as well as car noses, wristbands and exclusive 3D bookmarks – and the countdown is on before stock runs out.
One hundred percent of money raised from donations will go directly to Cure Kids.
Approximately one child in every 30 in New Zealand - roughly one in every classroom - lives with a life-threatening illness or genetic malformation, and Cure Kids is dedicated to funding child health medical research.
School pupils should ensure their school is registered at firstname.lastname@example.org as Paper Plus is offering an unforgettable trip to Europe. All schools registered with Red Nose Day to Cure Kids go into the draw and the winner will be announced live on TV3’s Red Nose Day: Comedy for Cure Kids on 24th August.
Paper Plus’ Group Marketing Manager, Lyle Hastings says that the support that schools have shown has been fantastic and their fundraising efforts will make a true difference to the lives of children affected by illnesses.
“Over the last few weeks we’ve seen kids across the country get behind this cause, and some exciting fundraising initiatives have come out of it. For those schools who have not yet registered – there is still time, so make sure you head to your local store and start getting creative and fundraising,” says Lyle.
All Paper Plus and Take Note stores are getting behind the campaign, with staff ready to help local schools in communities throughout New Zealand.
