A way to help after Cyclone Gabrielle

$3,262 donated

Helping our next-door neighbours who were affected by Cyclone Gabrielle.

Napier, Hawke's Bay

I have set up this fundraising page in response to you, my lovely readers, who have requested how you can help after the devastating cyclone that tore through our region on Tuesday 14 February 2023.

I will be using the funds to benefit our neighbours who have lost everything they own, literally arriving at our house in the dark with only their pyjamas and a cellphone. Everything else was lost including their two beautiful cats, and they were lucky to escape with their lives. They do have insurance, however it will take a while for everything to be worked out. Especially with all the other claims being processed at the moment.

If you wish to help any amount is welcomed. Thank you for your kindness. If you don’t want to use this page or can’t for some reason and still wish to help, please make a donation to your local animal shelter.

With love and gratitude,

Fiona Ferris, Author

Life is slowly returning to a new normal. Insurance claims have now been settled. I’ve returned to work, currently on a part time basis. Very grateful for the generosity of spirit shown on this platform and in all aspects of life. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
