  1. Hello, my name is Caitlin and I have been living in CHCH for 15 harrowing months. At the time of the February quake, I was at my home in Lyttelton, very very close to the epicentre. I went to the Canterbury museum today with my husband and brother and was so delighted to see all these hand crafted hearts. I chose the purple one that says, "Love Chicago USA Martha" as I grew up in the Chicago area. And lived there until I departed for NZ. I have been terribly homesick through it all, but knowing that generous people worldwide, and even in Chi Town , have been sending their love to us here in this broken city is just so wonderful. Thank you so much. Xoxo
