For three weeks this May, a limited edition blue and red bun will be doing a lot more than simply satisfying those mid-morning cravings. Bakers Delight’s annual KidsCan campaign is back for its fourth year, with 100% of Fun Bun sales going directly to KidsCan, to help provide support to Kiwi kids in need.
Between 6 – 26 May, purchasing a Fun Bun (or four!), or adding a one-dollar donation to your purchase, will directly help KidsCan support over 200,000 children across the country with the essentials, to ensure each child is in the best position to attend school and participate in learning.
Over the past three years, our friends at Bakers Delight and their customers have together raised over $110,000 for KidsCan, helping to provide children with nutritious food, jackets, socks and shoes as well as health items. This year they hope to raise another $40,000 to help KidsCan meet the growing demand for support.
"We're so grateful to Bakers Delight for their continued support of KidsCan with the 2021 Fun Bun Campaign," said Julie Chapman, CEO and Founder of KidsCan. "Too many children are living with food insecurity, but with our village of caring Kiwis, including businesses like Bakers Delight, we are making a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children. But with more than 4,000 children waiting for help we need more support now more than ever.”
Many families are still feeling the effects of the fallout from Covid-19; Bakers Delight Franchisees are ready to rally their customers to raise as much as they can.
“The KidsCan campaign is a favourite time of year in our bakeries for many Franchisees, staff and customers, many of whom have been supporting the campaign since its conception. It is an opportunity for our bakeries to rally their customers and make a big difference to the lives of many children. After a year of so much uncertainty, there has never been a better time to bring communities across New Zealand together to raise funds for such an important cause,” said Bakers Delight Joint CEO Elise Gillespie.
You can support the campaign by visiting your local Bakers Delight bakery and purchasing a delicious Fun Bun (or four!) or by adding a donation on to any purchase.
