Help the Mill family - Updates - Givealittle

  • Update for the Mill Family November 17th     17 November 2016

    Melissa and Matt would like to thank everyone for their incredible generosity over these past few days.

    The Mills are very overwhelmed with the amount of support from NZ in such a short period of time, and have decided to close the page for the time-being.

    This page will no longer accept donations, and the Mills are taking some much needed time to carefully consider how and where the extra donations will be honored to support the community affected by the earthquake. All donors will be notified in the coming days with details for distribution of donations.

    The Mills are so grateful for all of your support, and say that this disaster has brought their community together. Also the support from this page has meant the world to them. Melissa said that there aren't enough words to properly thank you all! Thank you!

  • Update for the Mill Family November 15th     15 November 2016

    The Mill family would like to express their gratitude for the support they have received from NZ. And they are feeling pretty overwhelmed and so thankful for all of your donations and kind messages.

    In these early days the Mills are still in the process of cleaning up, and still looking into how any extra donations over what is needed will go towards helping other victims. Early estimate from Melissa on what the Mills will need to recover is $10K-15K. Some possibilities the remaining donations are: Red Cross Earthquake Appeal, and the other families in Christchurch that were robbed on the same day. All donors will be notified with more specific details as we know more, but we will know specifics soon.

    A few things the Mills will need to be replaced are: Laptop, GoPro, ignition on Melissa's vehicle from attempted theft and a few other electronics. Matt's work truck mentioned in the Stuff article should be insured by the company.

    Again Melissa and Family will keep all donors updated as regularly as possible and want to make sure that all extra donations to towards helping the victims of the earthquake.
