MORE FM’s More Day Raises - Much Needed Money for KidsCan
 
More Day kicked off at 6am this morning and so far a total of $100,000 has been raised and 555 Kiwi kids have been sponsored through KidsCan.
 
The nationwide radio network MORE FM joined forces today with big names including Richie McCaw, Lisa Carrington and Dan Carter and musicians Avalanche City, Stan Walker, Jason Kerrison and Dave Dobbyn live in studio around New Zealand throughout the day. 
 
Guest newsreaders including John Campbell, Hilary Barry and  Mike McRoberts provided their skills across the day too. 
 
Plus amazing auction packages were available to bid on through the More Day charity auction store on Trade Me with 100% of the proceeds going to KidsCan.
 
“The generosity of More FM listeners on these auctions has been fantastic,” says Network Programmer Director Ande Macpherson. “This is an important charity for New Zealand children and I’m proud the entire More FM team throughout NZ could support such a worthy cause.”
 
MORE FM through More Day is helping to raise awareness for the KidsCan Charitable Trust’s campaign encouraging New Zealanders to “support a Kiwi child in our own backyard for as little as 50 cents a day.”
 
“More Day has been absolutely amazing and we are truly humbled by the support of the More FM and the public of New Zealand” says KidsCan CEO Julie Chapman (nee Helson). ”The funds raised will be used to provide food, raincoats and shoes for Kiwi kids less fortunate than others, ensuring they can get to and through the school gates in a better position to learn”.
Ends.
