Thursday 5TH. at 109C CENTENNIAL AVE, PACKING DAY OF THE EMPTY BAGS, DONATIONS OF PRODUCT STILL NEEDED. Plus a reminder to those who offered to help pack 1pm. phone 0212042633 thank you. There are approx.40 empty bags to pack, but IF you have a filled one you can drop that off until Monday 9th.March as once the labels arrive I will have to attach them to all the bags. I am still hoping to reach the 100 mark. THE BREEZE RADIO STATION is putting our Te Aroha collection out on their early morning news around about 7am. please tune in if you are up and about at that time. Every bit of promotion not only helps the Appeal but it brings Te Aroha to the fore. So to those who have already contributed a big thank you. Its been a lot harder than I imagined, and I have travelled a lot further than was expected, and I have copped some flack, but hey.. its not about me, its about an amazing appeal to give affirmation of love to a stranger in need, and what better town from which this comes 'Te Aroha The Mountain of Love.'

We want March to be all about celebrating the connections we have while making new ones along the way. As we all know, what makes a neighbourhood great isn’t the houses and cars, gardens and streets - it’s the people who share their presence and aroha with each other.

A wonderful way to take part is to participate in Neighbours Day Aotearoa which takes place from 27 March - 5 April. This year’s theme is ‘Small Things Make a Big Difference’ - we couldn’t agree more!
