I am not a blogger for this good causing event. However, One of my friends shortcake sugaplum [#7] designer joined this beneficial fundraiser. I hope everyone come to help for fund for EMILIA in Italy.
"HOPE FOR EMILIA is an exciting event that will last from July 22 to August 9, 2012
and will include a Summer Fashion Fair, fashion shows, an art expo and entertainment events to fundraise for the victims of earthquake in Emilia, Italy.
As most of the world is aware, the northern region of Italy has been hit by devastating earthquakes during the last several months.
The first earthquake, registering a magnitude of 6.1, struck in the Emilia-Romagna region, on May 20th of 2012.
Two aftershocks with a magnitude of 5.2 occurred a few hours after the main event, and seven people were killed.
Nine days later, on May 29th, an additional earthquake with a magnitude of 5.9 struck the same area causing an additional eighteen deaths and widespread damage, particularly to buildings already weakened by the May 20th earthquake.
And again on June 3rd, 4th and 6th, aftershocks struck the region, causing panic among terrified people, who still don’t know if this incubus is going to continue.
The damages of these earthquakes are terrible: 26 people died, and thousands are homeless, living in tents.
The whole economy of the country was brought to its knees.
"Hope for Emilia" aims to fundraise to help the many victims of the earthquakes: 100% of the funds raised with this event will be donated to victims of the earthquake through the bank account opened by Emilia-Romagna region (http://www.regione.emilia-romagna.it/terremoto/la-raccolta-fondi-della-regione-come-donare)."
