Domino & # 39; s sold hundreds of & # 39; s to raise money for a destroyed family that was duped by a builder and lost $ 40,000.
Shanon and Liza Casson wanted to reduce their assets in Whanganui, New Zealand, but were destroyed after a builder stole $ 40,000 from them.
& # 39; We started designing and paid for the plans and then proceeded to sign the contract and place our $ 40,000 deposit, ”Casson told Daily Mail Australia.
& # 39; We were expecting our baby, so it would be built just before our due date, but after many broken promises and no contact, we were worried.
& # 39; After some serious searching on the internet, we found out that he was on the NZ company list and was not allowed to own or manage a company at all. & # 39;
Liza and Shanon Casson were overwhelmed by the support of their local Domino's
The Cassons said they had paid the builder $ 40,000 to buy a & # 39; small house & # 39; to work for the family, but they were scammed when no work was done.
The builder has since been arrested and is faced with unfair charges, but these are not related to his alleged $ 40,000 theft by the Casson family.
Mr. Casson said the community had been fantastic in offering support since they lost their money.
& # 39; The public has been phenomenal with offers of free housing for donors from fundraisers & # 39 ;, an overwhelmed Mr. Casson told Daily Mail Australia.
& # 39; And of course Domino & # 39; s Pizza Dough Raiser who donated $ 1 of every pizza they sold on Wednesday night.
& # 39; We didn't know the owners, but their generosity was overwhelming. & # 39;
A Domino spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia that the company is happy to help its local community for a good cause.
& # 39; At Domino we focus on helping our local communities. In this case, Neeraj Vishwakarma, our Whanganui franchisee, wanted to help this local family after reading their fate in the media, & they said.
& # 39; We didn't know the owners, but their generosity was overwhelming & # 39 ;, Casson told Daily Mail Australia
& # 39; The raiser saw the Whanganui community come together. The family was so thankful for all the money raised and it showed that there are wonderful people.
& # 39; The family was in the Domino & # 39; s store during the dough raiser so the locals could meet them and see who they were supporting. It made for a very busy night with nearly 600 pizzas sold.
& # 39; The family was so grateful when they received the money.
& # 39; Overall it was a fantastic experience for everyone. The team thought it was great to raise money for a good cause and our customers had to support one themselves. & # 39;
