New Zealand Red Cross has fashion items for auction as part of Appeal

Filed by Lucire staff/February 22, 2010/4.34

New Zealand Red Cross’s Annual Appeal sees red items featured on auction site Trade Me from March 1, in addition to its traditional street collectors who hit the streets beginning the same day.
   Running till the 10th, the online auction features a ruby necklace, 12 months’ free parking at any Wilson car park, Helly Hansen jackets, a mountain biking adventure in the Red Woods, three armfuls of red roses, a red Zambesi dress, a red Nokia from Vodafone and a weekend’s use of a red Mini Cooper convertible.
   Fashion accessories’ designer Tamsin Cooper, who donated an embroidered red overnight bag and accessories worth NZ$700, says the online auction is a way for people to show they care.
   ‘I know Kiwis will have fun bidding for the many fantastic items that are up for grabs so we can help make the Red Cross Annual Appeal a huge success,’ says Ms Cooper, whose bags, scarves and jewellery are hand-embroidered ethically in Vietnam.
   Money raised will help fund both domestic and international projects, including sending New Zealand aid workers abroad and buying emergency relief supplies.
   Donors can also call 0900 RED CROSS (0900 733-27) within New Zealand to make a NZ$20 donation, or head to to make a secure credit card donation.
   The collectors will be out in force till the 7th.
