Merry Christmas from Chrissy and the Flo family
We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with loved ones. After what's been a crazy year for everyone, we're incredibly grateful that New Zealand is one of the few countries that is able to get together with family and friends today, to embrace each other and celebrate!
We feel extremely fortunate to have been able to trade as usual throughout this festive season and we thank you for continuing to support us.
GIFT WRAP THAT GIVES BACK
Because of you wonderful people, we raised ____________________ this past week, through our 'Gift Wrap that Gives Back' appeal, which goes towards the Upside Organisation. Find out more about this wonderful program here.
We also wanted to take this time to acknowledge that whilst for many this is a special time, for others, Christmas is a very difficult and confronting season. Whether it's your first Christmas without certain loved ones, a financially challenging time, or any other difficulties you may be facing - you're in our thoughts, today especially. To those that feel 'joy to the world' and 'falalala la' are very far away at the moment - we are sending all our love to you.
There are some amazing helplines that are available even on Christmas Day:
Depression and Anxiety Helpline – 0800 111 757 or free text 4202 (to talk to a trained counsellor about how you are feeling or to ask any questions)
Lifeline – 0800 543 354 (0800 LIFELINE) or free text 4357 (HELP)
Suicide Crisis Helpline – 0508 828 865 (0508 TAUTOKO)
Healthline – 0800 611 116
Again, thank you for your support through the years, especially during one as tumultuous as 2020. With this year at its end, we are hopeful for what 2021 will bring, and we are excited for what we at Flo & Frankie have to offer you this new year!
Arohanui to you and your whanau,
