Mercury loves Starship. Their dedication to working alongside many of their customers for over a decade has helped Starship kids and their families across New Zealand. Both Mercury's staff and customers share their good energy with us often - and we're more than proud to have them as a partner of the Starship Foundation.

Mercury makes donating to Starship easy - in fact, 27,000 Mercury customers chose to donate as little as $2 a month onto their Mercury bill through the Mercury Star Supporters Club which goes directly to the Starship Foundation.

Every family with a sick child needs a strong community behind them, giving the support and energy that will get them through a tough time - that's what is at the heart of Mercury's partnership with the Starship Foundation, and the 30,000 New Zealanders who want to make a difference.

As the funds build up, Mercury and Starship Foundation identify much needed projects to allocate the money to - usually high-tech, life-saving medical equipment or improvements to hospital facilities and environments.

Since its launch in 2004, the Star Supporters Club has raised millions of dollars helping to fund:

 In 2016 Mercury provided a unique experience for Starship patient Eli, who had spent several months in Starship's Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). Mercury provided a wonderful virtual reality experience for Eli so that he could experience the thing he'd been missing the most, his home, family and friends.

I love it that Mercury enables their customers to help save children's lives through the generosity of the Star Supporters Club.
