Lei to help raise funds for Make-A-Wish
Thousands of lei handed out during this year’s Pasifika Festival will help make hundreds of children’s wishes come true.
More than 25,000 plastic flower lei will be exchanged for gold coin donations on March 8 and 9 with the proceeds going to Make-AWish New Zealand.
Floral fundraiser: Make-A-Wish New Zealand fundraising co-ordinator Olivia Yule with a bulk order of lei that the charity hopes will soon be turned to cash.
