Air New Zealand launches Carepoints assistance programme to 3 New Zealand charities

Air New Zealand has announced the launch of Carepoints, offering members of the company´s Airpoints program to gift Airpoints Dollars to any or all of three charity partners: KidsCan, Women´s Refuge and New Zealand Red Cross, the company said.

The programme will enable up to 150,000 Airpoints Dollars to be gifted across the three charities. Airpoints Dollars will be used to purchase essential resources like food, personal care, heating and petrol for struggling Kiwis from Airpoints partners New World, Mitre 10 and Z Energy.

Each charity receives 100 percent of the Airpoints Dollars donated, so gifting will enable these organisations help more Kiwis.

The donation period will run until 19 June 2020, unless target donation limits are reached earlier.
