Like many New Zealanders, we will be observing two minutes of silent reflection at 12.51pm, one week on from Christchurch's disastrous earthquake. Staff will be joining us; it's a way that we can show solidarity with our staff and contractors from the Canterbury region.
We've also started fundraising. Although we will be personally supporting some of the various appeals that are out there, from a work point of view this is much more personal. We want to help our people on thye ground down there in a positive and tangible way, and that's where our efforts will be directed over the next few weeks.
In the meantime, we will stand in silence this afternoon. It's an opportunity for all New Zealanders to set aside their differences, and stand as one in support of the good folk of Christchurch. Let's do it!
