WEAR red and black is the call to people in Wellington this weekend, to support the fund-raising efforts for those affected by the Christchurch earthquake.

It a spontaneous call for support says publisher of the website Frazer Carson.

“The idea originally was to ask everyone going to the Hurricanes versus Crusaders match to wear red and black, but now irrespective of the match being played we felt people should be asked to wear those colours anyway,” he says.

Mr Carson says by wearing the canterbury colours attention will be drawn to the fund raising effort.

There is no venue, and people who want to take part should wear the colours when around Wellington during the day.

A red and black day facebook page has been set up to spread the word.

“It’s another example where social media is being used to make people aware of what is happening,” Mr Carson says.

The Super rugby match scheduled for this Saturday between the Hurricanes and the Crusaders has been cancelled.

All Whitiriea Polytechnic staff have been asked to wear red and black on Friday.

Red and Black day in Wellington takes place on Saturday, February 26th.
