Big News Post 3 of 3

Sorry this is a bit late!!

Firstly it is actually lots of little bits of big news!

The fundraiser we advertised a couple of weeks ago was a huge success and the event raised over $12,000!  WOW!

Secondly tonight I went to see Evelyn and her daughter Stephanie.  They are off back to their home country after living in NZ for about 6 years.  They are amazing people.  They have given us the most generous gift.  Their car!!!!  I still can’t believe it but right now there is a beautiful Daihatsu YRV in our driveway!!!

Thirdly, the other big news is that we are here for another year in NZ.  Aria is not going to transplant in 2008, unless something drastic happens.  YAY!  We are in no hurry to go.

Fourthly, Aria or at least photos of Aria are going to be on April in the Afternoon on the Living Channel on Thursday 5.30.  The show has gotten on board with fundraising and they are going to launch the idea on this show.

We are busy packing for the big move at the beginning of next week.  We are so excited and can’t wait!!

Thanks Dan for updating the photo!
