KP and Snos organised Lee Welch from Red Cross to come and talk to our class and pick up the money we raised. She told us about some of the history of the organisation as well as what Red Cross does around the world. 100% of the money donated to Red Cross goes to help people in places around the world where natural disasters or conflict occur.

Photo B - also outside Downtown, in front of the reddish wall and part of the shop beside it (anyone know what shop it is?)
Photo C - to the right of the Regent - in front of the Ticket Office (if they'd let us).
We need to choose an area where we won't be blocking shops or anything. We also need to work out where we'll put our sign. We'd be interested in your comments about which location would be better and why. Can you also just fill in the poll on the right. Thanks, Organising Committee.
We have decided on photo A

I have passed on your request to our Service Centre in Palmerston North.
Thank you for wanting to help.
Good morning Kyla,
I have read through your queries and of course will be happy to come and speak with your class.I think it important to note though that as John has outlined the only donations Samoa have asked for and New Zealand Red Cross can receive are monetary donations.
Please give me a call or drop me an email when a convenient time would be for me to call you and we can arrange a visit.
We should email Red Cross and invite them to LC13 to pick up the money we raise and talk to us. Fi - will ask KP and Snos to do this.

Thank you for your message and your kind wish to help the people in Samoa.
We appreciate that there are many people in New Zealand who are looking for ways in which they can help the thousands of people affected by the tsunami and we have been guided by the requests for help we receive from Red Cross in Samoa.
We have received no requests for support other than money. Red Cross Samoa have not asked us for goods or presents. They simply do not have the administrative capacity to coordinate offers of help in these other ways.
We launched the Samoan Earthquake and Tsunami Appeal for funds to assist Red Cross in their disaster response and recovery plans. They have suggested to us that the most pressing needs are supplying fresh water and shelter for the thousands who have lost their homes. These goods are being purchased locally where possible so as to help stimulate the economy.
We have learnt of two schools which organised fundraising coin trails to raise funds for Samoa. Someone chalked the outline of the words Samoa on a pavement or playground then they sought coins to fill in the word. This might be something you could discuss with your class. There are all sorts of other ways to raise funds so have a good discussion and see how many ideas you can come up with.
Once again thank you for your kind offer.

The traditional Samoan dance is the Siva. This is a bit different to the Hawaiian dance, with small actions of the hands and feet in time to music and it tells a story. Other types of dances are modern dance by the younger people, at bars or nightclubs. Samoan dance is the part of samoa that has not been changed for many years. Unlike several of the other
