The earthquake that has hit the northern Italy seems to not have an end, earthquakes are going on, luckily there are no other people injuried or damaged buildings.
The local residents are working hard to return to normality, to reopen farms and factories, to live again in their home.
At the moment there are calls for help such as money, things, engineers.
The EtsyItaliaTeam has contributed with a fund-raising campaign in its charity shop. The campaign was well-attended and we have donated the first 700€ to region of Emilia Romagna, here it is the receipt:
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts to Pam who has worked a lot to promote the campaign with a lot of treasuries and a giveaway on her blog. Also Diana, the winner of the giveaway, has written a post on her blog. Thank you :)
