I’m a Kiwi living in Toronto fundraising for the families of the Christchurch shooting victims.

Main image

Since living abroad for nearly 3 years, I’ve never been prouder to be a Kiwi. The Canadians seem to appreciate the humour and values I instill in every day life. But the events of Christchurch have shaken my Kiwi idealism to the core, and there’s a part of my heart that will always be broken by this tragedy. To all those directly affected by this tragedy I want to say I’m sorry that we didn’t listen, and did not protect you. You are Kiwis and you were supposed to be safe. The only way I can help from this distance is by donating to Victim Support in the hope that it may relieve some financial stress on those families directly affected. I am competing in a “Push/Pull” powerlifting competition on March 23, and am aiming to fundraise the amount I intend to lift in total (450lbs across Bench and Deadlift).

I’m a proud Kiwi living in Toronto, shaken by the recent events in Christchurch and wanting to offer support to my fellow Kiwis back home who are directly affected by this tragedy.

All funds raised go to:

“Lift for Life. Love you Becs! #Kiakaha”
“Love what you’re doing Rebecca”
“A most worthy cause. Good luck with your efforts. This will double if you hit your target!”
“Good luck Rebecca!”
“Kia kaha”
“Good luck!”
“Thank you for doing this.”
“Good luck”
“Good luck at the comp mate!”
“The strength of the response to this tragedy is most telling of the type of people New Zealanders are. Thoughts are with those affected and hope this donation can help provide some small relief during an unimaginable time.”
