The first Etsy Italia Team charity campaign has just ended and its results are great! Our fund raising campaign was destined to GECA ONLUS, a non-profit organization founded to support and help people affected by heredo-familial heart diseases and their families.
Our Team has always been sensitive to this theme and, thanks to our friend and team mate Vera who talked us about her condition and the GECA organization, we started a charity campaign this summer. You can read about the campaign and her story here: http://etsyitaliateam.blogspot.com/2011/07/eit-for-charity-geca-onlus.html
All heart themed objects sold in our charity store from july 9th to Spetember 9th raised 103€ (after taxes and fees) and the entire amout has been given to the GECA organization to help research on ARVC. Here you can see the receipt of the bank transfer to GECA ONLUS:

We would like to thank everyone who supported us and to thank Vera for allowing us to know about this organization. A special thank to all team members that got involved in this campaign giving to our charity shop their 'hearts':
See you soon with a new found-rising!
