My name is Powel Crosley and I have been utilising the Broadband forum from time to time to help me during intermittent problems with Telecom as an ISP (imagine that).
I work (in Auckland) with a charity dedicated to raising research funding to help women battling a rare form of ovarian cancer, granulosa cell tumour of the ovary.
Now I have registered because I have an urgent need for assistance of a different sort, and I apologise for the blatant nature of this post but it is for charity.
As you may be aware, Telecom has opened a website called www.charityvote.co.nz to decide on 4 charities which will receive funding from them as an "apology" for the email stuff-up last month.
The problem we (the foundation) have is that we are both small and new and while we are working to accomplish big things we do not have a big footprint. We are registered with both the Charities Commission and IRD as a charity with all related tax benefits for donors (in case you'd like to donate on your own).
So we need your help as a write-in candidate!
If you have an Xtra e-mail address you can vote.
Go to www.charityvote.co.nz, click on Click to Vote then enter your email address and specify "gctf.org.nz" as the charity.
Thanks for your help and I hope you never have need for our support and services!
