How awesome was May?! If you missed it, CFNZ took over May with the CF Month “Give a Future” appeal, shining a light on life with CF, access to medications, daily treatment and more.
Thanks to the wonderful CFers and their families who put their hand up to be interviewed we managed a phenomenal amount of TV, radio, newspaper, and online coverage, helping to raise awareness and educate the NZ public about CF. You can view / read the incredible coverage by scrolling to 'Campaign Feed' here >
As a result, almost 71% of the people on the CFNZ website during May were new visitors, with What is CF, Trikafta advocacy, CF care, and CF Genetics being the most popular pages for new visitors.
The NZ public responded by donating over $45,000 via the CFNZ website and ‘Give a Future’ appeal page. T-shirt sales and community fundraisers raised a further $15,000 and continues to grow.
A huge thank you too to the volunteers who gave a few hours at our street collections in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. The amount raised at street collections is being finalised and is not included in the above totals.
We are incredibly grateful for the support shown for the CF cause and CF Month this year. If you would like to give a few bucks to the campaign (it all helps!) visit www.giveafuture.org.nz, or text the word FUTURE to 4462 to make a $3 donation.
