a little RAY of giving


Ray White has partnered with Ronald McDonald House (RMH) to deliver an inspiring Christmas campaign for New Zealand families who may need a little extra light in their festive season.

The Little Ray of Giving campaign will launch across New Zealand and Australia from 1 December 2014 with New Zealanders being asked to dig deep to put smiles on the faces of some special children in their community.

“Sometimes just a small gift can make the biggest difference to someone in need at Christmas.

“All you need to do is wrap up your present and drop it into your local Ray White Manly office. Tell the Ray White team if the gift is for a boy or girl (or mum or dad), nominate an age group and your gift will be delivered by the Ronald McDonald House team to a family who will appreciate the lift to their festive season”. Gifts can also be dropped off at the office at Gulf Harbour School.

Ray White Manly are located at 9/49 Rawhiti Road, Manly Village and have a special giving tree upstairs to collect gifts for children and families who will be staying at RHM this festive season.

“It’s a really simple way to brighten the festive season for families who might really need it this Christmas”.


Contact: Ray White Manly on (09) 428 1927 for further details
