Free to Good home, Support Christchurch Avatars

My avatars have starting to pop all over Facebook, and this surly makes me smile! (Great ego boost too) As I said my my previous post the futility that I felt following the earthquake that hit Christchurch on the 22nd February 2011 was speedily replaced after I started being proactive with how  I could make a positive difference for those effected.  All you need to do to qualify for a FREE Personlised Avatar made by yours truly is donate $5+ to the Christchurch Earthquake appeal of your choice. Send me the proof along with any images you want included to chchavatars [at] designem.co.nz.

If you can’t donate (I know not everyone has the means to do so) You can still show your support by using one of the following free Avatars I have created. Please feel free tag yourself in the Avatars on my facebook business account and use them on your profile or other places. But please don’t add them to your own images or try to pass them off as your own work. Thanks!

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] designem.co.nz) 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!”
