Chopper Garage Sale


This year we’re asking Kiwis to help fundraise for their local rescue chopper from their garage.

We’ve teamed up with Trade Me to launch the ‘Great Chopper Appeal Garage Sale’, it’s an easy way to support the Westpac Chopper Appeal and get rid of any gear cluttering up your garage.

Here’s how you can help:

1. Find Something to Sell

Rummage through your garage, shed, house in the search for something that you don’t need or use anymore but that someone else might like to. This can be anything – an old bike, tent, baby gear, a house plant.

2. List it on Trade Me

  • Ensure to include #chopperappeal in the listing header (this means buyers looking to support the Garage Sale can easily find your auction)

  • Make sure you add some great photos

  • In the description section, describe the item and make sure to include a note that the proceeds from the sale will go toward the Westpac Chopper Appeal. You can specify your own regional helicopter or let the winner select the Chopper they would like the money to go to

3. Donate the sale price at

When your item has sold and the money/ goods exchange has taken place, donate the sale price here

  • You can choose to donate the whole amount or subtract the Trade Me Listing and Success Fees from the total if you wish
