Canon NZ is launching what it claims is the largest online auction in its history to raise money for people affected by the Christchurch earthquake. The auction starts on Trade Me from Wednesday, September 14 with 100 Canon products valued at over $50,000 to be sold.
The vendor is donating 100 percent of the proceeds to the Mayoral Earthquake Relief Fund.
Country manager Mike Johnston says they hope to see a “frenzy” of online bidding.
“It is going to take a lot of time and financial assistance to rebuild Christchurch but we are very fortunate to live in a nation where charitable giving is such a strong part of our culture,” he says.
The auction closes on Sunday, September 19.
Trade Me and CIO are both owned by Fairfax NZ.
