Kia Kaha Christchurch

After Thursdays feelings of futility faded I was left with the strong desire to do something constructive. Since then I have acutally gotten my chance to do just that! I have organised donations for two Chch refugees with littlies, designed art work for a charity Auction, Actually donated my self to said Auction! (Bidded on the Auctions hehe) Designed Art Work for Tales for Christchurch and now designed a lovely little Avatar that I am going to use in my next fund raising scheme.

Sooo … Donate $5 to any Christchurch Earthquake relief and email me (chcheqappeal [at] the receipt (as proof) along with any other visuals you want included and I will personalise your very own Kia Kaha Chch logo for your Facebook or other Avatar (Just let me know the dimensions.)

Kia Kaha translates from Maori to – “Be strong and fearless!” “Stand tall!” and “Be Proud!”
