RainbowYOUTH ribbons on sale at ASBs

Fri 13 Feb 2015 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

Central Auckand branches of ASB are selling ‘Wear Your Pride’ rainbow ribbons to support RainbowYOUTH throughout Auckland Pride Festival. The lgbti youth organisation says the bank has been a supporter since it added it to its ‘True Rewards’ programme last October, and has since helped it throw its 25th birthday celebration. It is also sponsoring RainbowYOUTH events during the festival, such as its Masquerade Ball for people aged under 27. Members of the ASB and RainbowYOUTH teams RainbowYOUTH General Manager Duncan Matthews says he’s proud to have ASB’s continued support. “To have ASB pick up our Rainbow Ribbon campaign from its small beginnings in Pride 2014 is very exciting. A dedicated team of our young volunteers made thousands of ribbons in the last few months, and the whole team has been buzzing with excitement about having them in ASB branches.” Matthews hopes that the visibility of the ribbons on ASB counters will attract support from the general public ,especially those members of the community who may not usually interact with RainbowYOUTH. “It’s a big, exciting step for RainbowYOUTH, and a huge thanks is a given to Carl Ferguson and the team at ASB for their generosity and hard work.”
