Christchruch Earthquake

So I am sure most the world has now heard about the Christchurch Earthquake that happened at 12.51pm on Tuesday 22nd Feb. Down here is Dunedin there was no damage, however it was felt. Christchurch is a good 4-5 hour drive away. Our roof was creaking, bookshelf was rocking and the house was swaying. I can only imagine how horrible it must have been for all those people who not only experienced it but for whatever reason, haven't yet been reunited with their families.

Myself and some friends have started a page on facebook calling for handmade goods do be donated. These will be auctioned on a NZ auction site - TradeMe - where all proceeds will be donated to the earthquake appeals.

If you are interested in donating something handmade.. please pop over to our page for details. Handmade for Christchurch. So far we have even had offers of items to be donated from as far as the USA. We feel so blessed that there are so many people out there willing to help out in any way they can. Auctions will be starting in the coming week. Will update with auction links as they happen.

A huge THANK-YOU to everyone for their support. Even just spreading the word helps. Link/Shout Out on your page, donate, send to a friend, bid on an auction.
