Donate to the New Zealand Red Cross Canterbury Earthquake Appeal at any PostShop

10 September 2010

People across the country can donate to the New Zealand Red Cross Canterbury Earthquake Appeal at any PostShop.

More than 300 PostShop stores are accepting donations into a special New Zealand Red Cross Canterbury Earthquake Appeal Kiwibank account set up in response to the quake.

New Zealand Post Group Chief Executive Brian Roche said the money would go directly to supporting the New Zealand Red Cross emergency relief operation.

"Kiwis can do their bit by utlising our national network of PostShops to make a donation and help the affected people of Canterbury deal with the tough times they're enduring.

"New Zealand Post is pleased to be able to offer support to the New Zealand Red Cross which has the expertise and experience to help the most vulnerable affected people," Mr Roche said.

All money raised will go to the New Zealand Red Cross Canterbury Earthquake Appeal. The Kiwibank account number is 38-9009-0759479-00 and the name is "RED CROSS"”.

Note to Editor: This is the first time an appeal is coordinated between New Zealand Red Cross and the New Zealand Post Group under a new partnership to help raise funds through New Zealand Post’s PostShop Kiwibank branch network.
