Street Appeal

Next steps

Thanks for organising your Red Puppy Appeal street collection!  Although the hard work is over there are still a few things you need you to do before Easter to round off your successful collection.

Bank your collection money and return your paperwork

If you haven’t already done so, please bank the money you’ve collected and send in your banking paperwork with your banking bag numbers in the envelope we sent with your materials. This is essential if you want to know the amount collected in your area.  You can email this information to redpuppy@blindfoundation.org.nz

Send in your volunteer details 

We would like to thank all collectors who supported the appeal.  If you recruited your own volunteers can you please provide us with their names, addresses and contact details so we can send them a thank you letter?  This information will also enable us to maintain our database of collectors for future street appeals.  
Please complete the volunteer contact details form (.docx) and email this information to redpuppy@blindfoundation.org.nz

Thank your collectors in your local newspaper

Many of our coordinators like to send a letter to their local newspaper thanking their team of volunteers for their help.  If you would like to do this please use our template press release (.doc) or contact comms@blindfoundation.org.nz

Let us know any feedback

If you have any feedback about your coordinating experience we would love to hear it, especially if it can help us make our future collections even more successful.  You can email us at redpuppy@blindfoundation.org.nz.  or alternatively you can complete our online survey now.

Return your collection materials

If you haven’t already done so, please return your collection buckets, bibs, thank you stickers, security seals and T-shirts to the Red Puppy Appeal Distribution Centre.  In your pack there was a pre-printed courier and address label for you to use.  

Questions?

We're happy to help!  Email redpuppy@blindfoundation.org.nz or call 0800 120 254.
