undefined It's exactly one week since the earthquake struck and like many people I'm still lost for words. It's hard to get one's head around the extent of the devastation to the city and to people's lives. To all of the people who are contributing to the recovery efforts - you are real heroes. The heart-warming stories of people's kindness and charity make me proud to be a kiwi. I am proud of every person who is affected by this tragedy and uses their empathy to propel them to do good, to be kind and to nurture others in the community. To all those who have lost someone dear or are still waiting for loved ones to be found and brought home, my heart is with you. Donate
