Obviously there are going to be some questions. So, here is your chance to ask them! There is no such thing as a silly question. If you're thinking it, someone else is too.

As a Christchurch resident...

I burst into tears when I saw this on my flist this afternoon.

Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you, you guys have no idea how much this means. It is awful here and every little bit, every donation, gets us a tiny step closer to picking ourselves up, dusting ourselves off and trying to regain a sense of normality.

Kia kaha, moderators, you're wonderful.

Re: As a Christchurch resident...

You're very welcome. I hope you're OK. I can only imagine what it's like there now. I'm in tears just thinking about it.

Re: As a Christchurch resident...

I'm in Christchurch too. How are you? Do you need anything? We're all reasonably well off here.

I cried over this too. I love people right now.

Your cathedral icon is making me cry too (as is mine. I was doing a series on reconnecting with the city, but that's over now :( )

Re: As a Christchurch resident...

Thank you so much - I'm okay. My house is structurally okay but an absolute mess. All my flatties have taken off so I'm staying with a friend until further notice.

Same goes for you - I have a car, a ton of gas and priority fuel from BP as I'm a CDHB employee and we're volunteering all over the show. So if you ever need a grocery run or anything, just hit me up ♥

And, OMG, my icon. I made a bunch of Christchurch icons after the last quake. :(

Re: As a Christchurch resident...

Our house seems fine, no further damage than last time but no power and water intermittent so we're at my parents' house.

Thanks for the offer, but my mum has a full car so we're okay for now. My car is unusable (misaligned wheels after falling in a sinkhole, and no petrol, but should be fixable) but we can get about for now. Good on you health workers; you're all amazing.

The icons are :-( This is my only Christchurch one and it was meant to be a symbol of hope and getting back on our feet. Now it feels like a eulogy.
