I have an idea *.... lets all wear red and black (Canterbury sporting colours) next Tuesday 1 March - a week after the terrible and fatal earthquake, to show our heart-felt support for Christchurch people and to give Cantabrians the message that "we love you, we feel your pain and we are all with you".
Imagine walking down the street and seeing red and black everywhere - New Zealanders showing support and solidarity for fellow New Zealanders.
Imagine being a visitor to NZ and experiencing this country-wide expression of support.
Imagine being a Cantabrian and seeing and feeling this big wave of kiwi support.
Get out your red and black clothes, scarves, hats, bags and shoes next Tuesday 1 March and show you care for Christchurch
Share this with your family, friends, work colleagues and neighbours
Let’s show Christchurch that we care for them and are thinking of them now.
*This is not actually my idea - post is copied from an e-mail sent to me - but you can be sure that I'll be wearing red and black tomorrow.
