Christchurch - how else to help
Besides donating 20% of all Knitsch Sock to Christchurch earthquake relief, here are some other ideas - what is needed, primarily, is money.
Donate at Oxfam NZ - Red Cross NZ is overloaded so Oxfam is channelling donations through their website
Donate blood (if you are in NZ) - sadly I can't do this thanks to living in the UK for a year in the mad cow black out period. Severely frustrating!
Donate to accounts set up by the banks:
ASB - 12-3205-0146808-00
ANZ - 01-1839-0188939-00
National Bank - 06-0869-0548507-00
Westpac - 03-0207-0617331-00
Vodafone users can donate to the Red Alert Canterbury Earthquake Appeal by texting Quake to 333 to make a $3 donation, or by texting Quake to 555 to make a $5 donation. A universal donation text number is currently being set up.
Donate via the Salvation Army website
Trademe has also set up an excellent resource for contacts, connecting people with services and supplies.
Again, my heart goes out completely and fully to the people of Christchurch, and anyone who knows someone that is missing. xxx
