The 2010 Kiwiblog Charity is the Fred Hollows Foundation

January 2nd, 2010 at 8:56 am by David Farrar

Almost 800 people voted in the year end poll to select a for 2010. The results were:

  1. 46%
  2. CanTeen 18%
  3. SPCA 14%
  4. Alzheimers New Zealand Incorporated 13%
  5. New Zealand Red Cross 9%

Now all five finalists are very worth charities, and over time I hope we can support them all, but for 2010 the Fred Hollows Foundation was the clear favourite with over two and a half times the support of the next charity.

Later in January I’ll detail some of the fund-raising ides for how we can support the Fred Hollows Foundation.

    Number 1 and No 5 are probably the only two that dont have part of what they gather used for administration or promotion etc – in other words – syphoned of to someone .

    Excellent. I forgot to vote, but was going to vote for the Hollows Foundation. It makes a huge and permanent difference to people’s lives – providing help that no-one else does.
