New Zealand Gives a F* for CF

12 September 2019

A huge thank you to all those who gave a Few hours, a Few bucks, a Future, Full life, Fighting chance… etc for CF, in August.

If you missed it, we asked the public to Give a F* for CF with a tongue-in-cheek campaign for our 2019 Annual Appeal. Activity included digital advertising, a giant billboard in New Zealand’s most coveted positions, bill-posters across Auckland and Christchurch, Facebook activity, and street collections across the country. There was definitely a ‘buzz’ with lots of conversation and news coverage raising awareness of CF.

The CFNZ website had 43.5% more visitors this CF Week compared with last year, with many of these being new visitors. This also translated into an increase in donations, with several new regular gift sign ups and new donors. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts for giving a better future for people with CF.

A huge thank you to all the volunteers who participated, whether it was a few hours collecting, helping to organise the collection, recruiting volunteers, selling chocolate fish, sharing your story, running their own fundraisers… it all makes a big difference.

This year, the awareness week campaign was possible thanks to our wonderful sponsors Mylan, EBOS and PARI. We are so very grateful for your support.

CF Week 2020 runs from 10 – 16 August, with collections on the 14th and 15th.
