We don’t need to tell you that things are just a little bit shite in the world right now.
Daily updates, wall-to-wall media coverage, rising fatalities – it can seem very overwhelming. But it’s important to just stand back a bit, take time away from scrolling on the phone, and silence those endless news alerts. Watch a crap movie, walk the dog, learn crocheting – just break the endless cycle every day.
For all our Bear New Zealand members who are currently isolating themselves at home, shout out if you need anything delivered to home to the front door. We are a community and therefore we should all support each other as best we can.
We have these wonderful things called email and messenger, so let’s use it to keep in touch and keep everyone’s spirits up, no one needs to feel alone at this challenging time.
To those who travelled from afar, to those who came from nearby. To our volunteers, our venue partners, our sponsors, and our business supporters. Thank you, thank you, thank you. From the Bear New Zealand Week team
