Christchurch Earthquake Appeal

On Friday we had a sausage sizzle to raise money for the people in Christchurch.  There was a 7.1 earthquake which tore houses down.  When we looked at the pictures we thought it looked like a bomb had hit the city.
The cars got crushed.  The houses got cracked and the farms had big trenches in them.

  1. I was so sorry to hear about this and I'm glad that no students at your school were hurt - though it must be frightening to have had something like this happen so nearby.
    It sounds like everyone is really pulling together and I'm sure that this will be practical help to the people of Christchurch - but also that it will warm their hearts.
    I lived in Italy for a decade and was there when there was a major earthquake south of Naples. My husband and I were involved in relief efforts and we could see how it touched the hearts of the victims.
    Best wishes,
