“Hope for Emilia” – has opened ! Not sure what that is? Wellll…here you go (from the official notecard)
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.More info here: http://hopeforemilia.wordpress.com/
