JK Kids Gear has been helping the Child Cancer Foundation help brave kids with cancer and their families since 2006.
In that time the support JK has provided CCF has been to the tune of $175,000 in cash, but that's not all that JK has done. We have also shown our support over the years in the following ways:
We provided new clothing for every newly diagnosed child, this was a much needed treat to help them feel better and ease the financial pressure on their family.
We also provided support during the annual appeal each year by working with NZ celebrities and CCF to design a range of kids T-shirts. The T- shirts were designed for girls and boys and ranged in size from age 1yr right up to 12yrs. The T-shirts were fun and fashionable and designed with kids in mind. The tee's retailed at $19.99 of which $10 went direct to the Child Cancer Foundation.
JK also made regular donations to the clothing banks at each of the CCF Family Places around the country.
We continue to support the Foundation today with "add $1 at the till". This fundraising effort gives every JK customer a chance to donate $1 (or more if you wish!) to CCF when they make an in-store purchase. Since it started in 2008, "Add $1 at the till" has been extremely successful and is hugely supported by all our sales staff in every store!
The Child Cancer Foundation is an extremely worthy cause and as a company we do all we can to support this invaluable charity. We hope the next time you are in a JK store you do your part to help CCF too.
