A very impressive publication of people doing GOOD works in New Zealand and around the world.


I hope they will allow input from Ration Shed and the lessons learnt the hard way as we strive the **Equal Parent** our Kids in a world that seems hell bent on tearing the old fashioned FAMILY to pieces.
