aftersocks™ – RWNZ Fundraiser for the Christchurch Mayoral Fund

July 11, 2011 10:05 pm

Wow! Over 6,000 pairs sold in less than three weeks! This has meant the NZ Sock Company is working very hard to keep up, and we do thank everyone for their patience if you are having to wait a little longer for orders. It’s also meant a huge logistical exercise in our national office processing the accounts and sending out all the orders. We’ve been helped in this by Bridget Evans, our president’s daughter, without whom we would never have coped!

If you want to read all the wonderful feedback we’ve been getting, check out the aftersocks Facebook page, which now has almost 3,000 people following us.

Interestingly 80% of the socks have been sold in Canterbury or are being bought for Cantabrians and sent to them, so we really are warming hearts, warming toes and warming Cantabrians with this project.

The aftersocks website is where you can go to order a pair This website had over 100,000 hits in one day!

RWNZ Branches can also order aftersocks under the special members’ bulk order offer:

50 pairs of aftersocks @$17 per pair plus postage and packaging of $10.50 = $860.50. To order in bulk contact National Office – email and put aftersocks in the subject line. (If members decide to on-sell at the full price of $20 a pair, they can use the extra funds raised for their own Canterbury earthquake project.)
