Help the Italy Earthquake Survivors
Organized by: juliet anderson
The death toll in the Italian earthquake has tragically grown to over 250 (and does not seem to be stopping) as rescuers continue efforts to find survivors trapped beneath the rubble of their homes, businesses and schools. Small villages that have lasted centuries such as Amatrice, Accumoli and Pescara del Tronto, in mountainous central Italy, have been decimated within hours. Many are injured, and thousands are now displaced. Survivors who have been displaced from their homes are forced to sleep outside with nowhere else to go. There have been hundreds of aftershocks since the quake struck, hampering relief efforts and damaging already unstable buildings. Won't you help us help the Italians of Amatrice, Accumoli and Pescara del Tronto by donating $5, $10 or even $1000? 100% of all donations collected will be sent to help those in need in these small Italian villages. More than 4,300 rescuers are using heavy machinery and their bare hands to free those trapped beneath. The worst part is that once they're freed: they will have no home and nowhere to go after. Citizens of nearby towns are not so lucky to have escaped tragedy. We want to go over and dig in the rubble ourselves! But right now what is needed most is to send money to reputable local charities in the area to help them care for the displaced who have survived though their homes have not. We are going to provide them 100% of the funds collected to help feed, clothe, and shelter the citizens of these small towns who now are without a home, many who have also lost loved ones. You may enter any amount into the donation field. Every penny received will go to help those who have lost it all in a matter of moments. We have so much. These citizens in Amatrice, Accumoli and Pescara del Tronto now have nothing. Won't you help us send them some comfort in this time of great need?
