Campbell Live raises $300,591 for KidsCan

Monday, October 1, 2012

Campbell Live has thrown its full weight behind a KidsCan funding initiative aimed at providing lunch to those children in the country’s decile one to four primary schools.

As part of that initiative, we organised for today to be National Lunchbox Day , and asked individuals, businesses and better off schools to get involved.

By 7pm on Thursday night, we’d raised $69,903 from 23,301 text messages.

But New Zealanders around the country have been finding ways to contribute to the cause, and by the end of the show tonight we had raised a massive total of $300,591.

We’d love to know about the effort you’ve made to raise money for KidsCan, and you can email us at [email protected].

Those who still wish to donate can deposit money in the following bank account:

KidsCan Charitable Trust: ASB BANK 12 3026 0348180 03

Or text Lunch to 8595 for an automatic $3 donation.

Watch Campbell Live next week to find out the grand total of money raised.
