EFTPOS New Zealand: The official eftpos supplier to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation

Wellington, New Zealand – 10 October 2014EFTPOS New Zealand: The official eftpos supplier to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation

EFTPOS New Zealand is proud to announce that we are the official eftpos supplier to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.

October is International Breast Cancer Month and on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 October EFTPOS NZ will be providing 40 VeriFone VX 680 Mobile terminals to help with the most important annual fundraising campaign for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation – the Pink Ribbon Street Appeal. By being able to provide the street appeal with mobile eftpos machines, an opportunity is created to increase the amount raised, simply by giving people another option to donate. Following the success of the campaign last year more machines will be turning pink – keep an eye out for one in a town near you!

The mobile eftpos machines that will be used throughout the country are not just fast, they’re equipped with ‘tap and go’ technology, so it is as quick as tapping your card on top of the machine and away you go. Simple as that. Donate a little, or a lot, it literally only takes a few seconds out of your day to donate. No more rattling around the bottom of your bag looking for loose change, instead just whip out your eftpos or credit card to help the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation raise much needed funds.

The NZ Breast Cancer Foundation is very active in our communities fundraising for breast health education and awareness, research, and to support women with breast cancer. 

“It is fantastic to be able to support the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation, and provide them with the latest payments technology so their collectors can raise more money during the Pink Ribbon Street Appeal,” says Pete Hansen, General Manager, EFTPOS NZ. “We’re delighted to be able to assist in raising much needed funds to support those in our community affected by breast cancer”.

This year we have also come on board as “Supporter of the Day” for each of the Estée Lauder Companies Pink Star Walk events taking place in Auckland and, for the first time, in Wellington and Christchurch. All the money raised will fund breast cancer research, awareness for early detection, and support for women recovering from or living with breast cancer in New Zealand.

The events take place on the first three weekends in October, beginning with Wellington last weekend where 700 people took action for breast cancer. They will be events like no other so dig out your pinkest and brightest outfit and join thousands of people across the country as we get fit, increase awareness of breast cancer and raise money to support NZ women. The Auckland and event has both 5km and 10km route options, while Christchurch has a 5km route and a half marathon option! Eftpos machines will be available at each event to help process last minute registrations, so even if you’ve run out of time to register in advance you can still enter the event on the night.
