By now you’ve probably heard about the massive earthquake that rocked central Italy this past week. The peaceful villages affected were literally sleeping when the quake hit, and entire cities have crumbled. My friend Laura, a fellow wine enthusiast and an Italian native, has instituted a fundraising effort through her family’s non-profit organization, Vertical Foundation, Corp. She’ll be hand delivering the funds to Italy to ensure it goes directly to on the ground recovery efforts. Please consider making a donation to help get these beautiful people back on their feet and help them rebuild their lives.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.
