Support KidsCan – earn free advertising

last updated 08/03/2023

Franchises supporting this little Mini on the Pork Pie Charity Run can earn a week’s free advertising on our Home Page at

Rather them than us! Lorraine and Simon Lord of Franchise New Zealand try out the Mini for size and decide the long drive to Invercargill is better left to the Bonodleys team

KidsCan is a charity dedicated to helping Kiwi kids experiencing hardship by providing food, jackets, shoes and health products to schools across New Zealand. After the cyclone and floods, they’re needed more than ever, which is why the franchise community is getting behind this little Mini to help raise funds for KidsCan.

The Mini is going all the way from Paihia to Invercargill to help raise funds for KidsCan as part of the Pork Pie Charity Run. Sponsors from the franchise sector already include:

  • Coresteel 
  • Crank’d Media
  • Duncan Cotterill 
  • Ecomist
  • Exceed 
  • Franchise Accountants
  • Franchise New Zealand Media
  • Iridium Partners
  • KiwiSpan
  • Putti
  • Streetwise Coffee
  • The Coffee Club
  • Unicloud
  • V.I.P. Home Services

Corporate sponsors of $1000-plus get a logo on the car, and small personal sponsorships are also available. Over $20,000 has already been pledged and we want to make it more.

For the next three franchises to pledge at least $1000 to the cause, here’s a bonus – we’ll give you a FREE BANNER on the Franchise New Zealand home page for a week. Contact to find out more, or donate at 

Come on, guys. Let’s get behind those Kiwi kids who need us!
