ITC Red Nose Day fun raises over $230 for Cure KidsPosted on 01/09/2015 by Jess O'Connor
Students at the International Travel College (ITC) aren’t just known for their passion for airline, travel and tourism; they’re also gaining a reputation for being incredibly generous!
ITC regularly runs bake sales, mufti days and other student events to raise money for New Zealand charities. These events are a great way for students to socialise and have fun, while at the same time contributing to an important cause.
Friday August 21st was Red Nose Day, a fundraising campaign for Cure Kids New Zealand – the charity that funds important medical research into conditions that affect Kiwi kids.
“At Cure Kids, our purpose is simple: every single day, our researchers are driven to find the cures for serious health conditions that affect many of our children. We focus on raising funds so that vital medical research can continue until our researchers find the cures our kids need,” reads the Cure Kids website.
The ITC City Campus sold red noses at reception for a $3 donation, although some students generously donated more to this excellent cause. ITC also allowed students to wear mufti clothing for this day – a real treat as the college enforces a corporate black and white dress code.
ITC Student Services Advisor Tisi Tupou helped to organise this event, and was blown away by the student’s generosity.
“All the students showed their support for Cure Kids by purchasing a red nose and wearing it proudly around the college,” says Tisi.
“Thank you to everyone who donated – your efforts have raised an amazing amount of money for a great cause. So give yourselves a huge pat on the back.”News, Student success | Tagged Cure Kids, Fundraiser, ITC students, Mufti Day, Red Nose Day, Student events | Leave a reply
