In August and October of 2016, the central Italian town of Civitella del Tronto was leveled by two earthquakes measuring a magnitude of 6.2 and 5.5 respectively. For its inaugural charity event, Mission—led by Valeria Altobelli, Miss World Italy 2004—gathered over 40 global ambassadors from 35 different countries to raise funds to rebuild a kindergarten that was destroyed in the earthquakes. These representatives gathered in Italy from June 21 to June 26, 2017 to host fundraising events and a charity fashion show, with all proceeds going towards the reconstruction of the kindergarten. The representatives also participated in dialogues regarding future charity projects benefitting women and children across the globe. Please consider contributing to our cause. It is our duty as citizens of this planet to provide for others where we are able and to work to better the lives of the less fortunate. Thank you!
