Christchurch Earthquake Damage

How You Can Help
Christchurch needs your help!
New Zealand, and indeed the entire world, has rallied together to help sort our crisis. Many university students and others who cannot currently return to school or work are volunteering to help with the community clean-up.
If you cannot physically help, then you can help by donating now to the Christchurch City Mission, or one of the many other charities set up to help Christchurch.
It is going to take many years and lots of hard work to restore our beautiful city, but together we can do it!
