New Zealand Experiences Second Major Earthquake in 5 Months

Dear Readers,
   Very rarely do I appeal to you for causes, but this one is near and dear to my heart. New Zealand just experienced a 6.3 magnitude earthquake. The second major earthquake in 5 months. My heart goes out to the Kiwi people, who were so kind and generous to us during our honeymoon in December. Please take a moment to go to the New Zealnd Red Cross link posted below and make a contribution. Remember that New Zealand is an island so aid and basic supplies not only costs more, it takes longer to get there due to the country's isolation. Your generousity and prayers are much appreciated.
