To donate to victims of the terrorist attack on two mosques in New Zealand, you can use a Visa or Mastercard to contribute to the official giving page created by the New Zealand Council of Victim Support Groups. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you run into any technical problems due to being overseas. PBS NewsHour listed other donation ideas here.
Thank you to the Chicken Thoughts Official Instagram account for creating the touching illustration of the iconic New Zealand kiwi bird being comforted by a cockatiel friend. You don’t have to be a bird owner to love the Chicken Thoughts account; I check it so obsessively that it’s the first place I saw the link to the donations page, so I wanted to give some credit here.
