Help give a Merry Moment to Kiwis in need this Christmas

We all treasure the special moments that make Christmas magical and after a pretty tough year, we need your help to make sure that everybody gets their own Merry Moment.

Donate to the Foodbank Project

We’ve teamed up with The Salvation Army to help spread some magic to thousands of Kiwis in need that might otherwise go hungry. Donating is quick and easy – click here to donate much-needed items via The Foodbank Project, or you can donate non-perishable items or money in-store when you shop with us. Just keep an eye out for the Merry Moments trolleys near the exit.

A food parcel won’t solve everything, but every little bit helps when it comes to helping out at Christmas.

Countdown will also donate $5 to The Salvation Army for every ‘Santa Snap’ shared on social media. Just take a photo with our augmented reality Santa filter and share it on Facebook or Instagram. Our goal is to donate $100,000!
