Kia kaha

For about 20 some odd years now I have had some very dear friends in New Zealand. The shootings in Christchurch have shocked and hurt so many. From my knowing, they believe they are one people (a lesson we could all learn) and this has been devastating for them.

“Kia kaha” is stay strong in Te Reo Māori, one of New Zealand’s official languages. It is the equivalent of “my thoughts are with you” and it seemed appropriate. You can download both cards here:

Version 1 with Silver Leaf ferns

Version 2 with Kōwhai plant

If you would like to write cards full of love for the people of Christchurch, where many have been impacted by the recent shootings, please send your heartfelt written cards to the following address:

Sending Love
PO Box 90701
Victoria Street West
Auckland 1142
New Zealand

Sending Love has a Christchurch area coordinator will get them to where they need to go. I have designed two cards, each prints two invitation/A2-sized cards per page, that you can print and mail. I am posting this on my Patreon as well but my logo is not on it on purpose, I’m not out for publicity, this is solely to do some good for my whānau (extended family).

Thank you for being here, no matter where in the world you are. We are all one race. The human race. Let’s act like it. xo
