This February 9, Domino's stores across the country will observe World Pizza Day with its annual fundraising event for New Zealand charities.
This year's "Domino's for Good Day" marks the company and local store owners' second time coming together to donate one dollar from selected pizzas sold to support its recently launched charity, Give for Good.
Give for Good supports a range of local charity organisations that help disaster-affected communities, mental health initiatives, disadvantaged youth and the development of future leaders.
Domino's is asking its customers across the country to be an "everyday hero" by purchasing their favourite Domino's pizza to help out Kiwis in need. Their goal is to raise more than 25 thousand dollars for the charity.
Domino's New Zealand General Manager Daniel Hawkins noted that he is proud of Domino's stores for passionately supporting their local communities.
"All year round, our stores take pride in supporting the local people and communities in which they operate - whether it be a pizza donation to those in 'knead' of a hot meal, hosting a 'Doughraiser' to gather some much-needed funds for a local cause, or team members donating their time and skills to assist those doing it tough."
Give for Good General Manager Bronwyn Spencer added that the charity is excited to be celebrating World Pizza Day for a second time.
"We are proud of our partnership with Youthline and look forward to using the funds raised on Domino's for Good day to further support this partnership and to expand our support across New Zealand by partnering with more organisation and charities, ultimately enabling us to do more good."
The initiative follows just days after Give for Good donated 10 thousand dollars to Taskforce Kiwi to support Auckland flood relief efforts. The donation sponsored 20 volunteers on a four-day clean up mission.
