Did you know that the Westpac Rescue helicopter is funded exclusively by donations? And around this time of year, it's a busy chopper indeed.
I got a call from Chris, one of the people who actually works in the helicopter. He pointed out they don't use telemarketers. He also mentioned they cost $5000 per hour to operate.
Unfortunately I couldn't contribute, but I can encourage you to give. Please visit www.rescuehelicopter.org.nz and keep the chopper in the air!
