Standing on the side of the road (GENUINE HARDSHIP)

Julie from Glen Eden

You may have seen me around West Auckland standing on the side of the road holding a sign reading

I am pleased to share my gratitude for people's kindness and generosity and to address false accusation from a few consumed with negativity as they struggle with my action.

From early on, I realised I am touching the most beautiful hearts in the country and after crying all the way home from receiving a $200 food voucher & $100 cash. I informed my children that if they lose faith in people, the human race is doomed.

I had to weigh things to determine if I was worthy. On the one hand I am imperfect while on the other hand I barely survived predator behaviour from business people suffering from the roughly 2018 recession and have worked hard to heal-repair. my family so we can contribute well in society.

1. POISONED AT WORK., Infection 5cms from heart & given literally days to live.
Exploited to decrease expense by $6,000 - & $7,000. (machines should have been used)
Exploited to increase income by $4,000-$5,000.(WINZ wouldn't help)
I cannot expose my family online
I spend roughly 2-3 days in hospital and 1-2 days out attending appointments with psychiatrist, psychologist & other professionals.

Time spent on the side of the road is between these 2 things.

I also listened to EVERY PERSON"S advice & followed directives (I stayed away from cultural groups - not interested in one being better than another).
I also could NOT get help from WINZ.

I believe some people will judge kindly and some will judge harshly. Either way, its important to me that kind and generous people are not hurt by my actions.

I still need help. Have another proceedure this week that I really hope works. It costs a lot to go in-&-out of hospital and family runs out of food

I also hoped to buy another vehicle as public transport doesn't fit family crisis (can explain in person)

Love you all xx STAY BEAUTIFUL

I've been gifted with unforgettable experiences through people's kindness & generosity that seems to have no limits.
I'd love to share some of these.

For example, strangers, being a couple with young children, provided 3 weeks respite care for the family dog who requires much attention.

They also cared about me as if we went strangers. It was incredible

BTW, you are welcome to contact me (big smile) on 027 597 8706

Maria from Kelston

I see it has been announced today that we will be able to bring in 100 refugees every six weeks from July. No offence to the refugees but we can't even look after our own people at the moment. Will they be set up in housing when we are paying so much for emergency housing ,given benefits etc. I feel this has to stop as nz can't afford it. The world has changed as we know it and we can't afford this extra burden.

Jacinda Ardern reveals she and Clarke Gayford will get married in Gisborne

Brian from New Lynn

Ardern told the couple had set a date for their wedding, but wouldn't let slip on when it would be until they told their guests. "We haven't actually told anyone that we have invited yet, so I feel like we need to tell everyone first and then I'll tell you." However she said they would tell everyone soon because: "accommodation is slightly limited in Gisborne". Ardern confirmed to Coast Radio on Wednesday the nuptials would take place this summer - and hinted that they might be somewhat untraditional. She said she felt "a bit too old to have a bridal party", and may "forgo it" because she was "getting on a bit". Gayford proposed to Ardern over Easter weekend in 2019 on a hilltop in Mahia, which lies between Napier and Gisborne.
