New Zealand Earthquake Relief Fund
Our aim is to raise money to provide monitory relief to those affected by the recent earthquake in New Zealand. Having lived in New Zealand for a number of years and having friends directly influenced by the recent earthquake it is time that we across the world offered some assistance.
Imagine having to sleep in a tent because your home was destroyed. Imagine losing half of your cattle stock. Imagine having to put your Christmas funds into fixing your damaged shop or buying a new vehicle. Natural disasters literally ruin peoples lives and if we can help by donating a tiny amount of money then why are we not doing it already?
We aim to liase with local councils in the Canterbury, Marlborough and Wellington regions to find worthy beneficiaries of the money that we raise. If we can help one person get back on their feet then our goal is achieved. If we can help ten people then even better!
My sister was in the Christchurch earthquake in 2011 that claimed 185 lives and back then I didn't do anything to help. This time having spent a lot of time talking to people affected by the last earthquake and this recent earthquake I decided it is time to do something about it.
