New Zealand is now experiencing one of the worst disasters in NZ history as another earthquake hit Christchurch over the weekend. The deaths are still rising and people are still being removed from collapsed buildings, as you can imagine the city and country are in a state of shock as everyone scrambles to make sense of the devastation and loss of lives. I have cousins that live in Christchurch that thankfully are ok, family are trying to get them to Auckland. Amazingly a Dr. friend of mine from Canada was in the Cathedral taken photos hours before its collapse and was there when the earthquake hit too-he is on a cruise ship so was able to make it further North to Napier.
I have been thinking about how I can help out from Canada-Delys Cram from Little Scraps of Paper has come up with the perfect idea to show support. She has posted the address for Victim Services and will be sending blank cards with envelopes to be distributed to individuals and families as needed.
Victim Support are a group afiliated with the NZ police force and are trained in dealing everyday with adversity, helping and supporting people in need.
We thought they would appreciate some cards that they could write on and to take to victims of this devasting quake.
If you would like to do the same then you can send a homemade card (blank inside with envelope if possible) to
PO Box 2109
Thinking of you, Get well soon, with sympathy or just a plain blank card would be appreciated Im sure.
Kia Kaha Christchurch.
