Well this is just a quick update now that the Christchurch charity auction on Trademe is now closed. The orchid painting I donated managed to raise $165.00 Which will go to the New Zealand Red Cross to help those who need it most in Christchurch, So I’m pretty stoked with that!
Just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who was involved with the auction – From Jess and Kelly up in Auckland who organised the whole thing, To all the other wonderful people who donated, or bid on items. And of course Trademe too – who were kind enough to waive all the usual fees so that 100% of the money raised could go straight to the Red Cross.
I’ll be flying the painting back over to Nz with me next Wednesday so it can then make its way to its new home in Nelson – Thanks Rachel for your generous bid!
