Three years ago, we were about to board on the plane that would take us to Tokyo for a vacation of 20 days in the land which, for us, has always been the wonderland. Last week, just dropped from another plane, we were reached by the news of the catastrophe that was taking place half a world away, in the nation that hosted us for those unforgettable weeks. With the heart, we are close to all the people who are in the affected areas ♥
How to help.
- The Italian Red Cross has launched in the last days a fundraiser to support people affected by the tsunami. You can donate by sending a 2 Euros text message from Italy to number 45500, by cell or landline phone. Alternatively, you can donate by bank or postal account. All methods for donation are available on the Italian Red Cross website.
- On the website of the Japan Embassy in Italy is possible to find all the details to make donations directly to the Japanese Red Cross.
- A full list of sites and organizations that are raising funds for Japan can be found on this page and on our Twitter we will post links to all the other cool initiatives to support people affected by the earthquake.
