Campbell Live - a Christmas Story of Kindness

Who managed to catch Campbell Live on Wednesday night? For those of you who did, I am sure like me you were moved to dig deep and find some money to contribute towards the orthodontic work needed for Evan Hill. For those of you who missed the story, Evan has large front teeth that need corrective surgery as well as braces to fix. The family having come through the Christchurch earthquake can ill afford this treatment needed. The very next night I found I was moved to tears with the show of astounding generosity of New Zealanders who indeed, dug deep and donated to the tune of $100,000.00! Not only will Evan get his teeth fixed, his younger sister who did not appear on camera will have her teeth fixed as well, and to top it off the trust set up to administer the donations has been able to purchase a car for the family so they can get to the Orthodontist! To quote John Campbell, 'bloody marvelous!
