In its media release today, Family First NZ, a registered charity with the Charities Commission, is calling on Telecom NZ to donate its aborted “corny” rugby world cup promo abstinence campaign – to the New Zealand Family Planning Association Inc. (FPA) to be used in its nationwide school sex education programmes. The FPA was registered as a charity with the Charities Commission on 13 September 2007 (Charity Ref. No. CC11104). Its stated mission is “To promote a positive view of sexuality and to enable people to make informed choices about their sexual and reproductive health.”
The Family First Media Release states:
Make It Family Friendly, Telecom
Family First is welcoming Telecom’s decision to cancel its rugby world cup campaign.
“The campaign was always destined to fail because it was corny and not family-friendly,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ.
“The All Blacks fan club is made up of children and families, and any campaign needs to involve all ages and be family friendly.”
“The best thing to do with this campaign is to give it to the Family Planning Association and ask them to use it in schools with the sex ed programmes.”
Family First is encouraging Telecom to find a family friendly campaign that all of the kiwi family can participate in.
