Kiwis pulling together

Hubby showed me this link on trademe (NZ version of ebay) that lists help for the earthquake victims.

Christchurch earthquake support link

As of this posting, there are 1172 emergency accommodations listed for those who have lost their homes. 

Also there is a listing for lost and found pets--74 so far, with some who are volunteering to foster animals until things can settle down..

Someone is sending a 40' storage container that I am sure will be useful to many.

It warms my heart to know that New Zealanders pull together in the time of crisis.

The earthquake must have been horrific, I followed on TV, but, I know it's not like being in the thick of it...hope things get better soon.

I'm glad to hear that you are safe...and we pray that help will reach all of those who need it. Living in earthquake territory, I know how scary they are and how much damage can be done. I'm glad to hear that people are pulling togather and helping out...we here send money through the Red Cross...it is a small way to help out...Take care!!
