A quake

WATER FOR CHRISTCHURCH


If anyone in Auckland can and wants to donate:

Highlife Entertainment, George FM, Cafe Massimo and Y Generation will be joining forces this weekend to collect donations of bottled water to send to the effected areas in Christchurch after the earthquake.

There is currently a major shortage of clean water in Christchurch so bottled water will be needed for families, rescue workers and clean up teams over the coming weeks.
Drop off points at George FM 105 Ponsonby Road, Cafe Massimo Takapuna, Newmarket and Albany have been organised for donations this Saturday February 26th and Sunday February 27th between 10am and 5pm.

We ask that bottled water is delivered in boxes but if for any reason this is not possible, then bottles of water in plastic bags will also be fine.

Donations of canned food, clothing and other items of interest will also be accepted.

All donations will be delivered direct to Christchurch next week.

For more information or if there is any support that you or your company could offer, please contact Adam Bennett on the following details below.

A quake has caused devastation in Christchurch. I am reading the news in utter disbelief. My thoughts go out to everyone there.

Heard this on the news and thought of you. It brings it so much closer to home when you know someone in the area.

Rachel Fenton said...

Thanks, Kass.

Have friend here with family there and still no contact - going to be a long night for her and longer still for everyone there. We are thinking of you all over there.

Rachel Fenton said...

Oh, Cat. I hope there's good news soon.

I can't tear my eyes away from the tv screen, even though they are filled with tears.

18 months ago I watched my kids climb to the top of Christchurch Cathedral...and now...

Rachel Fenton said...

It's heartbreaking, Donna.

They are all accounted for - one good thing in among the devastation.

Elisabeth said...

My thoughts too, Rachel. I worry for my blog friend Marja from Dutchbaby who lives in Christchurch. May these horrors pass without too much loss of life.

Rachel - I just woke up - 7AM in NY and heard. I thought of you instantly. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of NZ today - vito

Being a native Californian, I've gone through many of them. It's never good news, whether the quake itself is a big one or more moderate. My thoughts go out . .

Talli Roland said...

I thought of you straight away. Thinking of Christchurch and wishing everyone there well.

Rachel Fenton said...

Thank you, everyone.

Elisabeth, I hope your friend is safe and well and that you hear news soon.

Dominic Rivron said...

It's a dreadful business. Just dropped by to check you were OK! I couldn't remember where you lived in NZ.

Rachel Fenton said...

Thank you, Dominic, that's really kind.

Dave King has left a new comment on your post "A quake":

Yes, indeed. I had thought my brother and his wife were there, but in fact they had revised their schedule and crossed to the North Island the day before.

I would like to wish every blessing to all those involved in any way.

Thanks Rachel, for the opportunity.


No probs, Dave - only blogger hasn't transferred your comment from the moderation page to here, so excuse my rude means of publishing your thoughtful and kind words.

Thanks again to everyone who commented.

So sad, so tragic for those in Christchurch. My daughter and her friends were 100km north when it happened. They were going to take their car back that day, but for some reason didn´t get around to it.

Rachel Fenton said...

Merc,I'm glad your daughter and her friends are safe.

Golden West said...

Such dreadful news, so much devastation and the terrible loss of so many lives. Prayers for the people of Christchurch, that they may find strength and solace as they move forward with such burdened hearts.

Rachel Fenton said...

Thanks for such lovely words, GW.
