Christchurch: A beautiful struggle...

Over the last two years, the people of Christchurch have suffered two devastating earthquakes and over 4,000 aftershocks. But while the city is slowly being rebuilt, many residents are still struggling. So we want to give them a Christmas they truly deserve, using an unlikely casualty of the earthquakes – empty Marmite jars.
The markings left in our jars, from scraping, sharing and rationing during the Marmite shortage, have fortuitously left us behind with unique patterns that symbolise the struggle Christchurch has been through. So we asked some of our country’s most famous Marmite lovers to hand over their jars to be captured by renowned photographer, Chris Sisarich. All the proceeds from these images will go to the ‘Rebuild Christchurch Foundation’ who will be giving vouchers and Xmas hampers to struggling Christchurch families this Christmas.


The Rebuild Christchurch Foundation was set up to support and bring together the communities of Christchurch and Canterbury following the 2010-11 earthquakes. For the second year running they will be initiating ‘Project Christmas’, which aims to help families who are struggling to provide a Christmas for their family. Working alongside social agencies, the Rebuild Christchurch Foundation ensure that they will be helping the people and families who really need and deserve it, but normally wouldn’t ask. Last year they helped 76 families. This year their aim is 300 families. We’re getting behind them to increase this number to as much as possible, so everyone can enjoy their Christmas. Find out more...

Can add to the beauty of the landscape when used correctly.

Owning a regular lawn mower does not mean you have to give
up on mulching your yard; you just have to be willing to do some work.

Grass clippings are full of nitrogen and break down quickly.
