Countdown is launching its new collection of Super Animals collectable sound cards today. The initiative is to raise funds for SPCA New Zealand. The card collection depicts animals from around the globe, providing information about different species and, with the purchase of an additional speaker, project sounds from each animal.
Four cards are given out for every $20 spent at Countdown. An album is also available for purchase for $9 with $1 from every album going towards the Shelter Buddy system - an initiative headed by the SPCA.
