Iridium Partners are proud to support KidsCan

We’re excited to announce Iridium Partners are supporting KidsCan in 2023. 

We will be supporting The Bonodleys as they make the mission down the length of New Zealand and raising lots of funds for KidsCan along the way in the 2023 Pork Pie Charity Run.

The Pork Pie Charity Run is a 6 day, 2,500km charity drive from Paihia to Invercargill which will again be raising funds for KidsCan, with 100% of every donation going to this worthy cause.

Nathan Bonney, a director of Iridium Partners, and Matt Woodley, the CEO of the Donovan Group, whose brands KiwiSpan and Coresteel operate franchisee/licensee networks nationally teamed up as The Bonodleys,  to take part in the 2023 Pork Pie Charity Run in March & April this year. The Bonodleys have set a lofty goal of raising $100,000 for KidsCan

The Bonodleys are reaching out to those corporates and individuals involved in the franchise sector, with a  goal of having the mini covered in logos (and donations made) by the start of the event on 31 March, 2023

Speaking to Franchise New Zealand media in December, Nathan reported, ‘Initial support from the franchise community has been fantastic. The Franchise Association of New Zealand had the team (and Mini) along to its annual Christmas Party and we have already had donations, support and pledges from Franchise New Zealand media, Columbus Coffee, The Coffee Club, Crank’d Media, Ecomist and VIP Home Services.’  They have since been joined by KiwiSpan, Coresteel Buildings, MODNframe, Putti, Ezequote, Streetwise Coffee, PPS, Franchise Accountants, Duncan Cotterill and Unicloud.

‘The Pork Pie Charity Run is a fantastic cause and a fun event, and one that brands can get behind – they can engage and involve their franchisees throughout the country and feel great that they are directly contributing to creating better futures for Kiwi kids,’ says Matt. ‘100 percent of donations are going directly to KidsCan.’

If you’re interested in helping the team reach their fundraising goal for KidsCan, click here to donate.  By donating to the team, you will be directly helping KidsCan to provide food, jackets, shoes and health products to schools/kura and early childhood centres/kohanga across New Zealand. With these essentials, kids can participate in learning and have the opportunity for a better future. No amount is too big or too small!

Want to have your brand on the Mini?

Make a minimum donation of $1,000 or greater and you will have the opportunity to have your  logo on the Mini. Space is limited (it’s a Mini!), so the sooner you get in, the better your chance to display your support for our kids who desperately need it!

Want to include your brand and your franchisees?

The Bonodleys would love you to involve your franchisees! They provide donation buckets and displays acknowledging your support. They’re happy to provide promotional photos, visit franchisees along the route, or prior to the event.

Want them to wear your branded shirts along the way?

Make a donation, provide the team with a couple of T-Shirts and they will ensure you get some exposure over the event.

Other ways you can be involved

Donate goods or services – The Bonodleys  will be having an online auction in March 2023 prior to the event.
