A nice story in the Herald:
People who still have jobs are reaching deeper into their pockets to help those who are being made redundant.
Churches and social agencies say individual giving is rising in the recession, even though some trusts have been forced to cut back donations.
Auckland City Mission fundraiser Alexis Sawyers said more people were giving to the mission, and some long-term donors who normally gave $50 were now giving $100.
It is going to be very tough for a lot of the families over the next couple of years at least. Nice to see people stepping up to the challenge.
