PAK’nSAVE is PINK’nPROUD to support the Pink Ribbon Appeal

This October PAK’nSAVE is turning pink to support the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation’s Pink Ribbon Appeal. 

 


For a limited time PAK’nSAVE shoppers across the country can purchase a special pink reusable grocery bag for just $2. Not only will shoppers be ‘tickled pink’ with this cost effective and sustainable way to take their shopping home, but all proceeds from the PAK’nSAVE Pink Ribbon Appeal bag will go to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation. 

Steve Anderson, Managing Director, Foodstuffs (NZ) Ltd. says the PAK’nSAVE team is proud to once again put its full support behind such an important cause. 

“This is our second year supporting the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation. Last year we surpassed our expectations and donated over $72,000 to the Pink Ribbon Appeal, thanks to the wonderful support of our staff and customers. This year we are once again ‘PINK’nPROUD’ and I am confident we will see PAK’nSAVE Pink Ribbon Appeal bags in the hands of our customers across New Zealand.” 

Not wanting to be left out, Stickman will show his support by making a bold style statement and pulling on his pink gumboots on TV screens for two weeks during October. 

Evangelia Henderson, Chief Executive of the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation says, “We are delighted to have PAK’nSAVE’s support during our Pink Ribbon Appeal. Breast cancer affects one in nine Kiwi women over the course of their lifetime. Our vision is zero deaths from breast cancer. With the support of companies like PAK’nSAVE, and the simple act of buying a pink reusable grocery bag you are helping us achieve this vision through pushing for new frontiers in early detection, supporting those with breast cancer, funding research, medical grants and advocacy.” 

PAK’nSAVE is urging Kiwis to take action this October, by volunteering to the Pink Ribbon street appeal, or taking part in the Pink Ribbon Star Walks across the country. Also encouraging the ladies in your life to find out about the possible signs of breast cancer and to have a regular mammogram screening from the age of 40. Find our more from www.nzbcf.org.nz
