Trade Me has launched Aroha for Christchurch to help Kiwis show Canterbury some kindness.

Trade Me’s Chief Customer Officer Regan Savage said after the horrendous events in Christchurch on 15 March the company wanted to support the community.

“We’ve been working with St John, the Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand and ‘Our People, Our City’ to find out what they need most.”

Mr Savage said there is a range of practical and financial ways that members can show Christchurch their support.

“We know people often like to give ‘things’ rather than a donation, so we’ve asked organisations for practical options. Members can gift items like petrol and grocery vouchers to people who need a hand via the Aroha Store. Members’ can also donate to The Federation of Islamic Associations of NZ.

“We will be matching our members’ donations dollar-for-dollar and 100 per cent of the proceeds will go to the selected charity.

“We know Kiwis around the country want to help and we wanted to make it as easy as possible for them to show their support,” he said.

Kiwis can head to trademe.co.nz/arohaforchristchurch now to donate.
