Starship Spring Clean is a fantastic charity auction initiative that is asking New Zealanders to clean up and sell their old items (big or small) in support of the Starship Children's Foundation.
There’s a luxury European holiday package to be auctioned on Trade Me which includes two return Air New Zealand business premiere flights to London, plus 28 nights’ accommodation staying at Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties.
And if bidding on the holiday isn’t quite within the budget, there are other exciting and quirky auction items from a walk-on role on daily soap Shortland Street, a SKYCITY Breakers game day experience, CDs signed by Justin Bieber, Duffy, Florence and the Machine and Ronan Keating, a hospital bed from the set of Shortland Street, an equestrian teddy bear signed by Olympic medallist Mark Todd, Scott Dixon signed racing gear, a handsome (and huge) Steiff toy camel, a blow up remote controlled shark, an entire teddy bear collection and an original dress from the World of Wearable Arts.
Starship corporate partners are involved too, including a ‘Be a Zookeeper for the Day’ experience, donated by ASB; premium economy return trip for two to either London, Hong Kong, Japan or Shanghai donated by Air New Zealand, two $1000 fuel vouchers from Chevron, loads of bean bags from Mercury Energy, and Barfoot & Thompson and SKY Television are holding garage sales throughout September.
Plus, once the public starts listing their items on the Trade Me Starship Spring Clean store, there will be all sorts of weird and wonderful items to purchase in support of Starship.
To buy or sell Starship Spring Clean items on Trade Me, visit www.trademe.co.nz/starship from 1-30 September and follow the prompts. Sellers who donate at least 50% of the sale price to Starship, will be refunded their success fee by Trade Me.
Starship Spring Clean will help New Zealanders support their national children’s hospital. It’s a win-win: while cleaning out your cupboards, you’ll also raise money for vital equipment needed in the Starship Paediatric Intensive Care Unit.
