All half humans who wish to submit a claim to humanity should do so by 31 December 2009

As PM counts his gains from a mere $50 million to about $80 million this year, and as the government spends billions on New Zealand’s laughable military to fight the ‘Fijian Foofighters’, ‘Samoan Sinurgents’ and ‘Tongan Tarotists’,  one in 5 New Zealanders live in poverty.

And as if that isn’t a big enough insult to the people in this country, the fate of incapacitated parents and their young kids are left to the charity of a a few kindhearted people in the country.

A few people  have come to the aid of a Christchurch mother fighting cancer whose request for a special grant to buy clothes for her baby was rejected.

“Bonnie Avery, 20, was refused a special needs grant by Work and Income in April to buy clothes for baby Cordae.” A report said.

“She felt aggrieved about the refusal after revelations this week that former gang leader Darryl Harris was given special-needs grants for a swimming-pool fence and car tyres.”

About a dozen people made cash donations to help Avery, who said she would spend the money to buy Christmas presents for her son and pay over-due expenses such as power bills.

“It is much appreciated by me and my son. I am going to get my boy some Christmas presents. I have only been able to get him a few things so far.”

She said she was overwhelmed by the response from the public.

“This is not what I wanted out of this at all. But thank you all so much.”
