Volunteers required for All Whites v New Caledonia in Dunedin on Friday 22 March
February 28, 2013
The All Whites are playing New Caledonia at the Forsyth Barr Stadium Dunedin on Friday 22 March. This is a major stepping stone towards the All Whites’ goal of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup.
White Ribbon Campaign is associated with the All Whites, and during their New Zealand matches we have the opportunity to participate in awareness-raising at the games. New Zealand Football and the White Ribbon Campaign want to end men’s violence against women, but we need volunteers to help us on game day.
At the last event in Christchurch the South Island Patriots and a number of Christchurch volunteers handed out ribbons at the start of the match. Younger children were tattooed with the White Ribbon temporary tattoo, White Ribbon Riders rode round the inside of the stadium at half time, and match announcers spoke about the campaign. The official programme included a full-page profile on the Campaign.
At the Otago event some of activities will be:
- hand out ribbons
- put tattoos on kids
- put up posters
- have White Ribbon Riders and their bikes parked inside the stadium
- half time messaging
- full page profile in the programme
Please email us if you would be willing to volunteer to:
- hand out white ribbons
- young volunteers (eg your kids who like soccer) to put tattoos on other children (requires water, bucket and bending over)
- place posters in the stadium prior to the game
- participate in the event if you own a motorbike
All volunteers are able to watch the match free of charge.
