Get involved in raising funds for the Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards official charity partner!

Welcome to #NZMusicTShirtDay!

NZ Music T-Shirt Day is a massive nationwide celebration on Friday 8 November of kiwi music and the power music has to make a positive difference in our lives. It celebrates our kiwi music legends and our amazing emerging talent. 

It also highlights the work of MusicHelps who provide support to the dedicated people in our community who use music to help and support people with health issues, people that are at risk and vulnerable, and disabled people from the Far North through to the Deep South.   

To carry out this essential work, MusicHelps needs your help. Please join with our charity and our partners: the Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards, JB Hi-Fi, Bravado, Recorded Music New Zealand, Phantom Billstickers, Alexander & Associates and seven of New Zealand music’s greatest artists to raise funds to develop and support these vital projects.

Whether you are an artist, music worker or music lover, we invite you to make a donation, and then post and share your best NZ band t-shirt pics, using the hashtags #nzmusictshirtday, @musichelpsnz.

Just hit the donate button, or create a team and get your workplace, school, and/or your social media networks involved. You can easily search for, and donate to, your favourite team via the “Donate to a Team” button or via the Teams "Honour Roll” below.

We have also developed a kiwi music general knowledge quiz, our “Waxing Lyrical” guess the song lyric game, as well as a music video artist and track guessing game to challenge your friends, family or colleagues at morning tea, during lunch, or even over Friday night drinks on the 8th. You’ll be able to access these once you have created your team page.

Don't have a NZ artist t-shirt? Then don’t worry.  JB Hi-Fi, Bravado and seven of our greatest music artists are here to help you. Th’ Dudes, Herbs, Lorde, Six60, Shihad, Split Enz and True Bliss have all generously donated brilliant designs for a set of exclusive, limited edition NZ Music T-Shirt Day shirts which will be available in all JB HiFi Stores from October 8th. Even better, you can pre-order your favourite shirts now through JB HiFi online here.

JB HiFi, Bravado and the seven artists involved, are all donating their efforts to the NZ Music T-Shirt Day campaign to ensure that all profits from the sale of these t-shirts will go to MusicHelps. These tees are going to go fast so don’t miss out. 

You can also visit the merch site of your favourite NZ band and show your support for them and for MusicHelps!

Please contact us here if you have questions, or would like tips on how to get your workplace or social networks involved.
