I'm sure you all know by now what has happened in Christchurch but for those who haven't "A 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit the Canterbury area at 12.51pm - February 22.The quake, approximately 5km underground and located 10km south east of the city has caused wide spread damage, bursting sewage lines, damaging buildings and homes, cutting power and telephone lines to many areas of the city. The Prime Minister, the Rt Hon. John Key, announced a national state of emergency." Red Cross.

The death toll has already hit 75 with 300 people still missing. Countless families have been torn apart and left with no where to live.

If you can please help, visit a trusted charity organization and donate towards helping the people of Christchurch in their darkest hour. I would recommend the Red-Cross [link]

Please also be wary of sites/ impostors trying to take advantage of this terrible disaster [link]

Feel free to use or spread this image if you are using it to help spread the word about this disaster and get help for those affected.

Artwork is done in pencil and edits made on PTS

Very moving.
Personally, I prefer the fingers of the 'hurt' to stretch a little more, so it will look more 'hopeful' than 'hopeless'.

I love this! Even though its messege is sad and junk, there's lots of possible symbolism, especially because the had reaching to help is wearing a fancy glove and sleeve. :headache: SO MUCH SYMBOLISM. :tears: I'm so much nerdy. :shrug: Oh, well. SYMBOLISM!

I was in the 6.3 earthquake and f**k it was scary!! Especially it was closer to the city, than the 7.1 and the buildings would have become weaker and weaker from the constant aftershocks we are getting!
It's a nice deviation by the way:nod: very emotional.

Knowing this almost reminds me of Typhoon Ondoy.
The disasters were different, but the effects are the same.
May God help those suffering.

Some friends of my family are living in Christchurch... For a few days we didn't know if they're still fine, but on Friday we got an e-mail from them. I'm so glad that they're not injured, 'just' the house is damaged, but not destroyed.
Very expressive piece of work, I hope it will get better soon... And also that there won't be many aftershocks. I will try to help, too!

Thank you, finally someone outside of NZ who actually knows and asks others to help, most the time NZ is pretty invisible, which can be quite difficult when a tragedy like this happens. But thank you for knowing, caring, and spreading the word.

I didn't actually think I would see someone outside of NZ asking others to help out. So thank you! :)
