Now in its tenth year, the KidsCan Christmas Cracker Appeal is another great way to give back this festive season. Funds raised will help provide on-going assistance to thousands of Kiwi kids in 598 low decile schools.

The Christmas Crackers are available for purchase nationwide for just $2 each.

“Over the past three years sales from crackers at Countdown have raised more than $260,000, and we’re aiming to help raise another $100,000 for KidsCan this year. It’s an easy way to support a great cause this Christmas,” said James Walker, general manager of corporate affairs, Countdown.
