Frequently ask questions

When can I host?

You can host your event anytime that suits you!

Registrations close at the end of May, so most people hold their fundraisers in May or June. 

What will be included in my host kit?

Your host kit will contain:

  • a host instruction booklet that contains all of the information you need to know
  • a selection of Pink ribbon merchandise, including pens, nail files, BooBead keyrings and cookie cutters
  • products and vouchers from our wonderful campaign sponsors
  • some tasty recipes and a pack of serviettes
  • a pre-paid Post Haste courier bag for you to return any merchandise you have leftover after holding your event

When will I receive my host kit?

We’ll start sending out host kits from the beginning of April, and it should take around seven working days (at most) to get to you. Your host kit will be delivered via Post Haste Couriers to the address you gave us when you registered, so please get in touch if this has changed. Remember that Post Haste cannot deliver to PO Boxes.

What do I do with the merchandise? 

Great question! The merchandise in your host kit is there to help you fundraise.

Most people have the items available at their event to give to people who make a donation - you could set up a little pink table with the merchandise and some breast health information, so people can make a donation and get some of the items if they want them.

For those thinking of doing goodie bags or giveaways, we just wanted you to know that the merchandise comes at a cost to the Foundation. We suggest using the pens and nail files in your goodie bags and for giveaways, and saving the boob beads and cookie cutters (which have a $5 suggested donation) for people to get seperately if they want them. 

Because the merch items are so popular, they're a great way to raise extra funds at your breakfast!

Can I order additional merchandise?

Of course! If you would like extra merchandise please get in touch with the team. Remember to allow up to seven working days for your order to arrive.

How do I register?

Registrations for the 2019 Pink Ribbon Breakfast campaign have closed. If you'd still like to fundraise for Breast Cancer Foundation NZ, please get in touch with the team on fundraising@bcf.org.nz 

Is it possible for an educator to come to my Pink Ribbon Breakfast?

Please contact us if you would like to request an educator by emailing us at fundraising@bcf.org.nz with the location and date of your Pink Ribbon Breakfast.

Unfortunately due to the number of requests we receive we’re unable to send an educator to every breakfast and we will give priority to those who have been hosting breakfasts for a number of years (who haven’t had an educator before) and/or those who have over 100 people attending. If your request is unsuccessful please consider approaching your local GP to see if they would like to attend or if they can recommend a local breast cancer nurse.

When will I be sent a thank you letter?

Of course! To save on administration costs all thank you letters will be sent out from the end of July, however if you'd like something earlier please let us know.

Do I have to fundraise online as well?

No, when you register for Pink Ribbon Breakfast you will automatically have an online fundraising page set up. You can fundraise at your breakfast online, by collecting cash or both.

Online fundraising pages can be a convenient way for people to donate to your breakfast, particularly if they can’t physically make it or wish to make more donations after the breakfast has taken place.

How much money do I have to fundraise?

There is no set amount that you have to raise but remember that every dollar counts. No matter how small or large, your fundraising will help our mission to prevent New Zealanders from developing and dying from breast cancer and to support those with the disease.

How do I bank the money I've raised?

You can find all the ways to get the money you have raised back to us on the "Transfer funds" section of your host page. The easiest way is via bank transfer (our bank account details are below) using your personalised reference number.

Account name: Breast Cancer Foundation NZ
Account number: 12-3030-0534226-03 

I’ve lost my reference number, what do I do?

Your reference number will be sent via email soon after you register. In the first instance please check your emails including your spam/junk folder. If you can’t find the email please call us on 0800 902 732 or email fundraising@bcf.org.nz
