The major earthquake which struck Christchurch, New Zealand, early Saturday morning has been one of the biggest news stories of the past week. Fortunately, there were no fatalities, but because of the extensive damage, the AAPO Conference scheduled to take place in Christchurch has been postponed until February 2011.
On a more positive note, this gives you another chance to go if you weren’t able to make it this month.
If you’re wondering what you can do to help those who have been affected by this disaster, consider purchasing a copy of The Accidental Organiser by Wendy Davie. Wendy has generously offered to donate $10.00 from the proceeds of each book sold to the Christchurch City Mission Fund. The cost is only $29.99 NZD (approximately $21 USD) and includes shipping, so this is really a great deal and a great opportunity to make a contribution.
If you’re undecided, read Angela’s Esnouf review of The Accidental Organiser before placing your order.
