Day 135: cool initiative encouraging people to publicly express gratitude to those who helped them following the Christchurch earthquakes. #ThatTimeYouHelped #gratitude #christchurch #southisland #newzealand
wirednomads on Instagram
Starting in 2010 and not subsiding until 2014, Christchurch experienced over 4,500 earthquakes above a magnitude 3.0. Over 1000 buildings were destroyed within the central business district and over 185 people were killed. Much of the city is still an active construction zone. As a temporary solution for the CBD, they set up shipping containers as a place for the shops/businesses to continue operating. The containers are now a permanent fixture within the city center... #ThatTimeYouHelped #restartchristchurch

This is for my amazing mum and "ma" to my daughter Kate Smart. She has helped me in every way imaginable. From using all her annual leave to help me look after my daughter over school holidays to mowing my lawns and always being there for me any time. She would love a visit to Lone Star or relaxing time in Hanmer.

This lady here as helped me so much its not even funny. She was my friends mum and now she my god mum. She lets me stay at hers up to a month. She has helped me when i was at my worst. When i went through depression. When mum and my releationship fell apart. when i was gettin bullied 24/7. She always noticed when somethin was up. Trina Boyes is truly my hero. I really dont know what i would have done with my life if it wasnt for her helping me find the right path in life xx

My dad (guy on the far right). My mum was diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer in January 2013 and my dad stepped up and helped us both so much. We had no car and no other family members to lean on. He drove us to the supermarkets, hospital appointments and anywhere we needed to go. He even helped pay for our groceries on occasion when things got really tough and has just been me and my mums absolute rock throughout this whole ordeal. Both my mum and I wouldn't be here today without him and his unconditional love and support

My husband Jon Tex Avery who is a devoted father and husband. I live with chronic pain due to spinal fracture and arthritis and he helps me everyday not only with practical support but more importantly emotional support to keep going. He has devoted 23 years of his life to the armed forces & it would be nice this remembrance day to remember #ThatTimeYouHelped

I nominate my amazing partner Vinnie Thom, he is not the kids father but has stepped up and helps out where he can. He took the kids out when I was sore from competing in a kickboxing show, so I could rest. He takes them when I have to train and gets them dinner. I can not ask for a better man in my life he always wants to show the kids new and fun things and is helping them grow up to be amazing little men. There is something amazing about pure love like this he is not forced to love them, he choses to and would do anything for them. I can not repay you for the love and help you have shown us when we needed it most

My mate Wendy in the straw hat took it upon herself to provide a bbq lunch for my family on the day we moved my ill 79year old dad into a different house. She got the food, plates, sauces, table, cooker, drinks everything! She cooked to time it with the last load. She added a huge love bubble to our day.

This is my Mum Gail. We have just spent time at Christchurch hospital and are now in Starship with our daughter. My mum has been cooking and cleaning and running around with our other kids as well as working and we don't know what we would do without her, we have no idea how we could possibly repay her for everything she does for us. #thattimeyouhelped

Donna Lavea-Martin turns 30 this week. Instead of receiving gifts she and her daughter are baking and delivering 30 cakes to nominated people who could do with cheering up. Others have donated ingredients too. Donna and her family are some of the kindest most giving people I've had the pleasure of knowing. #thattimeyouhelped
