Fundraising report
Update September 20, 2016: 
Saturday September 10th, the fundraising has closed.

Together we donated 298 handmade creations and raised a grand total of 2442 euros!

(editor's note: the sum has been made from receipt sent to Etsy Italia Team)

Donations have been made to the organizations we gathered below in this post; we are proud of these acts of generosity, made by and of what we can do the best: our creativity, our handmade creations and our hearts!
A HUGE thank you to all those who took part in the campaign by offering their creations or by buying from others. Thanks to all the customers, to who spread the word, to Atelier10 members who joined the campaign and all the American Etsy teams who helped by creating treasuries about the campaign. To all of you, THANK YOU! Your action, whatever small you think it was, meant a lot.
Now we hope the the material damages of the earthquake will be soon fixed, so the people of those villages can go back to their lives; as for  the soul ones, we know it will take much longer.


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.
