Earthquake in Italy - please, help!

Sad times for Italy, particularly for my beloved Po Valley.
Terrible earthquakes are devastating a large area.
We have dead people to cry for and a lot of work to do to help evacuee people who can't sleep in their house and to rebuild beautiful cities.
Again. 
After the dramatic earthquake of L'Aquila (2009) and terrible floods occurred in some regions in 2010 and 2011.
:(
So sad!

If you want to help and donate some money, I'm here to suggest you a way.
My Etsy team runs a charity shop and we are donating and selling handmade and vintage items to rais funds.


Here you can find a post by EtsyItaliaTeam showing how dramatic is the situation!

Leaders are making a wonderful work to upload new items everyday, so, please, take a look! You can buy something you like and send a help to Italy at the same time.
I gave a rabbit plush, but I hope to have the time to sew something else to add to my donation today.

Other beautiful items in the shop are, only to make some examples...
... Fran's poppy hat pin
... Maria Cristina's crocheted earrings
... Loukippi's lace bracelet


We have 200 € to donate at the moment, but we hope to do more.
So, please, help!

  2. Just ordered the bunny!

    We have been thinking of you since the news of the quake began to arrive through the news filters. We are heart sick to see the damage and the loss of life and homes and villages. Earth quakes in your region and in ours are to be expected but how can anyone really be prepared. The images on the Etsy Italia Team page are heartbreaking.

    I am sending you love and hugs.
