The NZ Music Foundation was established in 2012 and partners with projects nationwide that use music in healthcare and with at-risk & vulnerable people. It also provides emergency assistance to kiwi music people experiencing illness and hardship, and gives free professional counselling to those in the NZ music industry who would otherwise be unable to access help.
NZ Music Foundation General Manager Peter Dickens says: “This is a great present idea and a fantastic way to own something unique from one of New Zealand’s best bands. We’re very grateful to the members of The Clean for their generosity and creativity, and also to the excellent people at Real Groovy for their help in making thesets available to the public.”
The tea towel, mug and plate sets are available now from the Real Groovy website and in-store for $100, with all proceeds going to The NZ Music Foundation.
