Kidz First Noel Leeming Promotion 2011

In a repeat of 2010's successful campaign, The Twinkle Child Foundation volunteers again partnered up with the South Auckland Health Foundation to handout flyers outside Noel Leeming stores supporting a special promotion for Kidz First Children's Hospital. 4% of sales would be donated to Kidz First Children's Hospital if the flyer was presented at the counter with the purchase.

Just like we did in 2010, The Twinkle Child Foundation also held a bake sale outside Noel Leeming Newmarket, and sold our popular jellybean packets, raising money to provide gift packs to the children of Manukau Superclinic.

SkyCity Kidz First Christmas Party 2010

The Twinkle Child Foundation is proud to provide volunteers for the 2010 SkyCity Kidz First Christmas Party. This is a party put on by SkyCity for the children staying at Kidz First Childrens Hospital, to really brighten their day.

Our volunteers helped with face painting and t-shirt decorating. We even dressed in a giant Clifford costume to entertain the kids! The mayor of Auckland, Len Brown, was also at the event, and at the very end, our volunteers got the chance to paint a spiderman ensemble on Len Brown's face! Now that doesn't happen every day.
