Staying strong together for New Zealand - our mission continues due to your generosity 12 February 2019
Kia ora Friends
When we started this page we had no idea how generous Kiwis and souls around the world would be. We have received such tremendous support, witnessed so many acts of kindness and beautiful messages for those who have been effected by the recent fires in the Tasman District. This has all been from YOU!
News received today is that "Emergency services are expected to maintain a presence in the fire-affected region into March" meaning the fight is not yet over and the community has a way to go before they are back on their feet.
As our organisation is keen to distribute your money as quickly as possible, we have asked Givealittle this afternoon to amend our page closing date to the 28 February 2019. This way, one payment can be paid out to the community which they can start putting to use rather than having 3 separate payments being made over the next 3 months as it is paid out to us.
Just as those effected and our selfless volunteers are not giving up this fight, nor are we. We are determined to keep rallying as much support as possible for this cause so please feel free to share this page amongst your networks and friends as every cent will continue to count for this community over the next 16 days it is open.
Without YOU, we simply would not have been able to achieve this incredible result so far.
No words will be ever be able to express our true gratitude for your wonderful support. We look forward to keeping you updated on the progress of your generosity over coming days and weeks.
Hello - when will you be giving the donations to Civil Defence and the Mayoral Fund? Thanks
