We’ve been blown away by the generosity of families throughout NZ who want to ensure Family First has influence and a strong voice in 2016. We know it’s getting really busy at this time of year, but if you were intending to respond, then it’s not too late! You can donate securely on our website https://familyfirst.org.nz/contribute/
As this is our final email for the year, we bring you our annual POLITICALLY CORRECT Christmas Greeting…
Best wishes to you for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, politically correct, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of the summer holidays, practiced within the most joyous traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, but with respect for the religious persuasion of others who choose to practice their own religion as well as those who choose not to practice a religion at all.
Additionally, we wish you a financially successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the generally accepted calendar year 2016, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures or sects, and having regard to the race, gender, religion, age, marital status, disability or impairment, sexual preference, family responsibilities, status as a carer, political beliefs or gender status.
(Disclaimer: This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others and no responsibility for any unintended emotional stress these greetings may bring to those not caught up in the holiday spirit. Any references in this greeting to “The Lord”, “Father Christmas”, “Our Saviour”, “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” or any other festive figures, whether actual or fictitious, dead or alive, shall not imply any endorsement by or from them in respect of this greeting.)
From Family First to your family…
May it be filled with love, joy, peace, and time of refreshment… and of course lots of family time!
Thank you for your support, words of encouragement, and active responses to our calls for action during 2015. Roll on 2016!
