Help out at the NZ House & Garden Tours
The NZBCF need volunteers to help run these successful tours all over New Zealand. The 2017 tours are in Hawke’s Bay, Tauranga, Christchurch, Wanaka and Auckland. Volunteers are needed for 4-5 hours in the morning or the afternoon. We also need volunteers in a supervisory role for the day. The role can involve security, helping with parking and the flow of visitors, selling merchandise and raffle tickets and setting up. If you would like to volunteer please email us or call (09) 304 1220.

Become an Area Co-ordinator for the Pink Ribbon Street Appeal 2017
As an area co-ordinator you will oversee multiple Street Appeal sites in your area on the appeal days, manage a small team of volunteers, receive and distribute stock to volunteers, trouble shoot on the day if any issues arise and bank the donated funds. We provide everything that is required to run the area including a detailed brief beforehand, completed roster of registered volunteers and their contact details, stock, banking materials and site permits. This appeal would not be possible without the help of our fabulous area co-ordinators.

Give 2 hours to The Pink Ribbon Street Appeal 2017
We need general collectors in your area in October 2017. Join our Pink Army of around 9000 volunteers when we hit the streets for two days every October. Get your friends, family and colleagues together and Give Hope, Give Life.

Join our Auckland Call Centre (September 2016)
The closer we get to October, the busier we get in the Pink Ribbon Street Appeal office in Parnell. We're looking for volunteers to help out in our call centre during the lead up to our Pink Ribbon Street Appeal. If you have a clear voice and friendly phone manner and are available to help us out anytime Monday – Thursday between 9am-3pm in our Parnell office please email us

We have intakes of interns twice a year (starting in March and August) and we have a number of positions covering various aspects of our work including fundraising, marketing, project management, recruitment, volunteer management, events and communications. Gaining work experience at one of NZ’s most trusted and well known charities will look great on your CV. Register your interest now 

Pink Star Walk in your city
We couldn’t hold The Estée Lauder Companies Pink Star Walk without the enthusiastic support of volunteers so if walking isn’t for you why not volunteer instead? There are a number of ways you can volunteer before the event by helping in our Auckland office, putting together walker packs in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch or spreading the word by putting up posters and flyers in your local area. We also need volunteers on the night to help with registration, marshalling and of course a cheer squad. Tell us how you;d like to help when you volunteer for the Estée Lauder Companies Pink Star Walk 

Gifting your services and skills for a specific project   
You might be a savvy event planner, artist, professional fundraiser, social media guru or chef!  We’d love to hear from you and talk about ways we could work together to raise funds, save money or spread the breast awareness message wider.  Please tell us how you'd like to help here 

Survivor Speaker for Events
You may be a breast cancer survivor who would like to spread awareness about breast health and breast. We’d love to hear from you if you would like to share your breast cancer story by speaking at one of our events in your region. Please contact us

Whether you have a whole day to spare or just a few hours, the Foundation welcomes your contribution – the amount of time you give is up to you.
