Hi Auckland neighbours,

Did you feel the quake this morning?

If so, what was it like?

What was your reaction?

A magniture 8.1 earthquake off the coast of New Zealand triggered a tsunami warning for Northland.

The earthquake struck near the Kermadec Islands at 8.28am, with people in certain eastern areas of the North Island told to go immediately to high ground.

A 7.4 magnitude quake also hit near the Kermadec Islands struck about 6.40am, at a depth of about 56km.

Standing on the side of the road (GENUINE HARDSHIP)

Julie from Glen Eden

You may have seen me around West Auckland standing on the side of the road holding a sign reading
*GENUINE HARDSHIP.*
*NEED YOUR HELP*

I am pleased to share my gratitude for people's kindness and generosity and to address false accusation from a few consumed with negativity as they struggle with my action.

From early on, I realised I am touching the most beautiful hearts in the country and after crying all the way home from receiving a $200 food voucher & $100 cash. I informed my children that if they lose faith in people, the human race is doomed.

I had to weigh things to determine if I was worthy. On the one hand I am imperfect while on the other hand I barely survived predator behaviour from business people suffering from the roughly 2018 recession and have worked hard to heal-repair. my family so we can contribute well in society.

GENUINE HARDSHIP
1. POISONED AT WORK., Infection 5cms from heart & given literally days to live.
Exploited to decrease expense by $6,000 - & $7,000. (machines should have been used)
2. TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF WHEN APPLYING FOR VEHICLE WARRENT OF FITNESS.
Exploited to increase income by $4,000-$5,000.(WINZ wouldn't help)
3. COVID 19 LOCKDOWN CAUSED FAMILY CRISIS
I cannot expose my family online
4. PAST 3 MONTHS IN-&-OUT OF HOSPITAL
I spend roughly 2-3 days in hospital and 1-2 days out attending appointments with psychiatrist, psychologist & other professionals.

Time spent on the side of the road is between these 2 things.

I also listened to EVERY PERSON"S advice & followed directives (I stayed away from cultural groups - not interested in one being better than another).
I also could NOT get help from WINZ.

I believe some people will judge kindly and some will judge harshly. Either way, its important to me that kind and generous people are not hurt by my actions.

I still need help. Have another proceedure this week that I really hope works. It costs a lot to go in-&-out of hospital and family runs out of food

I also hoped to buy another vehicle as public transport doesn't fit family crisis (can explain in person)

Love you all xx STAY BEAUTIFUL

CONTINUED....
I've been gifted with unforgettable experiences through people's kindness & generosity that seems to have no limits.
I'd love to share some of these.

For example, strangers, being a couple with young children, provided 3 weeks respite care for the family dog who requires much attention.

They also cared about me as if we went strangers. It was incredible

BTW, you are welcome to contact me (big smile) on 027 597 8706
