Heart Kids NZ fundraiser target turns into long-term commitment

Valentine’s Day this year was auspicious in more ways than one, with Pete’s Natural Sodas Heart Kids NZ fundraising initiative not only reaching its original target of $12,000 but also evolving into a long-term commitment from the company.

“From the start we began thinking of how we could support Heart Kids NZ in the longer term,” Marleen Suy, aka “Mrs Pete” says.

“Having reached our original target of $12,000, we’ve now decided to extend the love by donating 20c from every future sale of our Pink Lemonade towards supporting Heart Kids NZ’s activities.”

Marleen says it’s been a delight working with the dedicated team at Heart Kids NZ and Pete’s Natural Sodas is really pleased to confirm a longer-term collaboration.

The special boysenberry-flavoured Pink Lemonade will continue to be available online and at selected suppliers who will be supporting the initiative.

Heart Kids NZ Fundraising Coordinator Alanah Gilder says working with the Pete’s Natural Sodas team has been a boost for their organisation and the extended commitment will support much-needed activities for Heart Kids NZ children and their families.

Marleen says Pete’s Natural Sodas has not only had support from their own team to make the campaign successful, but there’s also been fantastic support from outlets and customers.

“This has been a real community effort and we’re looking forward to continuing to get alongside Heart Kids NZ team in the 15 regions where they are active throughout New Zealand.”
