In these challenging times, we are forever thankful and grateful to all of those dedicated and extremely hardworking essential workers who have being working so hard on the front line and behind the scenes.
◾ All of the nurses and doctors who give every single ounce of themselves to keep us alive.
◾ All of the first responders who work ungodly hours to try and keep us safe & alive.
◾ All of the supermarket workers and shelf stackers who work under such trying times.
◾ All of the truck drivers who get our products to the supermarkets.
◾ All of the farmers who work tirelessly to make sure that we all have enough meat, milk, fruit & veggies to feed our loved ones.
◾ All of the postal workers who make sure the mail (bills) get through in time.
◾ All of the rubbish truck drivers and collectors for keeping out streets clean.
◾ All of those workers working behind the scenes, busying themselves packing up our goods that we have ordered online.
◾ All of those incredible workers who are in the assisted living field.
◾ All of the courier workers who deliver our goods to us.
◾ All of those people who are caring for all of the animals including the zoos

But let's not forget two very important groups either, they are:
◾ The various telcos who have kept on working to make sure that we have access to the internet and phones, thus allowing us to keep in touch with our loved ones and being able to order online.
◾ All of the power companies that have continued to provide power with the increased load in these times.
This has allowed us all to watch what we want on T.V. or computers etc ... as well as keeping up with the news and also to keep our wee ones amused with all of their various gadgets.
Fingers crossed there won't be any blackouts with this wet weather here as well as the colder temperatures kicking in.

To all of us for mostly not losing our minds while in lockdown.
Let's not forget that our kindness and compassion that we are well known for worldwide, has shown through in spades.
Well done everyone. Keep up the good work.
We can do this people, we really can.
As Jacinda said, "Stay the course, stay in your bubble and don't squander what we have achieved by giving the virus a chance it will only too readily accept if we do that."

To EVERY single person who has been working behind the scenes to keep us all safe and be able to continue living our 'new normal' lives, 💕THANK SO VERY MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS AND KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK YOU ARE ALL DOING💕

The Covid-19 pandemic has shown us all how quickly life can change. For many New Zealanders, this has meant job losses or significant pay cuts – and the family pantry suddenly empty.

For the past two months, there’s been a huge demand for food parcels from local charities around the country. Find out what we’ve been doing behind the scenes to support these charities who are helping New Zealanders get back on their feet.

During this time of COVID-19, it’s important we remember the different signs of stroke and that stroke is always a medical emergency.

One New Zealander every hour experiences stroke. But if you think F.A.S.T. you could save someone’s life and give them the best chance of recovery.

F - Face - Is it drooping on one side?
A - Arm - Is one arm weak?
S - Speech - Is it mixed up, slurred or lost?
T - Take Action - Call 111 immediately.

Think F.A.S.T., act fast, and keep looking out for each other.

Send a Level 3 Love Letter to someone you miss

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Hi Neighhours,

Hi Neighhours,

It's been a tough last few weeks, right? When life gets hard and the world gets scary, it's our loved ones we turn to for support.

But this extraordinary coronavirus pandemic is different. Many of us can't see our most special friends and whānau because we want to keep them safe, and we want to get through this as a nation by following social distancing and Covid-19 Alert Level 3 rules.

While thousands of people are returning to work, visiting friends and family outside of your bubble may still be off the cards for some time longer.

Do you have a message for someone you can't see in person? A shout out to a sibling or best friend? A much-loved and missed grandparent? A new baby you need to virtually cuddle?

Level 3 Love Letters is an opportunity to share a video message for a loved one on Stuff.

You can upload your video here so we can share it with them and New Zealand
