First donation for Italy earthquake
The Etsy Italia Team has made the first donation of 700€ to the region most hit from earthquakes this last month. Actually the earth is still constantly shaking, people are afraid and most of them still sleep in tents, but hopefully things will get better. So far the team collected 172 items donated by members, 114 were sold, raising about 1292€ - the 700€ donation is documented on the team blog.I think it's really amazing that something born for personal profit like the etsy website can make a difference in things of such matter.Thanks to everybody who purchased something from the bottom of our Italian hearts!
