In celebration of Kiwi mums, Johnson’s® baby and Plunket have partnered up for a charity auction featuring items donated by celebrity mums Pippa Wetzell, Sarah Ulmer, Sara Tetro, Trelise Cooper, Carol Hirschfeld, Michelle A’Court, Polly Gillespie and Jackie Clarke. All proceeds will go to Plunket to support families displaced by the Christchurch earthquake.
"Plunket centres around New Zealand have noticed an increase in demand for services for displaced parents and children of Christchurch. The funds raised from the auction will enable Plunket to support families and whānau with babies and toddlers affected by the Christchurch earthquake, says Jenny Prince, Plunket CEO.
In time for Mother’s Day 2011, the Plunket Mother’s Day Auction bought to you by Johnson’s® baby will run from Tuesday 26 April to Thursday 5 May exclusively on Trade Me. Everyone is welcome to bid on the auctions featuring gorgeous baby gear and mum-oriented packages donated by the celebrity mums. Items up for grabs include designer baby clothing, luxurious beauty treatments and a 50-minute solo performance by Jackie Clarke.
Carol Hirschfeld has donated a selection of treasures from when her children were babies, items that she was saving for her daughter’s daughter. Carol says, “I had a moment when considering giving these pieces up for the auction but I know what a difference the funds raised could make for other babies.”
Every auction winner will also receive a gift basket of Johnson’s® baby products.
Johnson’s® baby and Plunket invite all Kiwis to bid on the celebrity auctions to snap up something lovely for mum, baby or yourself and help families displaced by the Christchurch earthquake.
