Helping New Zealand...

Unless you have been living in a bubble for the last few weeks, I am sure that you will have heard about the earthquake that has devastated the city of Christchurch in New Zealand... The news will have affected some more than others, and for a variety of reasons, for me personally it is a place that I travelled around and fell in love with... For anyone with loved ones, or for those that live there, or even for those that have travelled and fallen in love with the city, my thoughts are with you... 
A Candyfloss coloured Kiwi - Good thing they aren't like this in RL or they would be even more endangered than they are now!
I would recommend to anyone to go down to the Garden City Relief - Help for Earthquake Victims event at Copley Square... A handful of designers have put forward some awesome items with all the money you pay going to charity. 
The event is small, but well laid out and creates a serene atmosphere, with space to remember the victims, even though it is located within a bustling mall setting... What more can you want, cute things to buy, in a serene place of rememberance where the money goes to charity... Time to get shopping, like you ever needed an excuse?!

  1. It's just devastating -- I've heard on the radio of expats in Australia just flying back to help, without any idea of how but just to feel they're doing something.
