Crafters in solidarity with the central Italian earthquake victims. Purchase a handmade item from Etsy Italian Team for a good cause. Read bellow their announcement and find a way to be supportive…
Once again Italy has been shaken: there was a strong earthquake the night between 23rd & 24th August with its epicenter on the border between Lazio, Umbria, Marche and Abruzzo regions which seriously affected the small towns of Amatrice, Accumoli, Arquata del tronto and Pescara del Tronto. The earthquake swarm continues, and the surviving inhabitants find themselves without a roof over their heads, without basic necessities. While the search for survivors continues, we invite you and all creative people, to launched by an act of generosity which, though small actions, can bring big relief to those who now have lost everything in the disaster.
Our community of crafters, makers, creative and young new artisans is varied, spread throughout Italy and the world but, thanks to the Internet we can still do something. With an apparently insignificant gesture we can be close to our compatriots in these days of hardship and pain.
Let’s gather around them in a virtual hug, making ourselves useful in some way and not leaving them alone.
