Earthquake in Abruzzo, Italy...

Our hearts go out to the victims, their families, and the population that has been affected by the tragedy in Italy. My fellow blogger Yvonne of Cream Puffs in Venice wrote today about - Dare una mano which means to lend a hand.

Joanne of Frutto della Passione has asked us to post about the efforts to help the victims of this week’s devastating earthquake in Abruzzo, Italy. She asked that bloggers in Toronto share some important information with their readers in the event that people want to do something to help.

The Federazione Associazioni e Club Abruzzesi Greater Toronto and The Grand Priory of Canada for the Knights Hospitallers of the Sovereign Order of St. John of Jerusalem Knights of Malta (Ecumenical Order) have created a Trust for those affected by the earthquake in Abruzzo.

If you would like to donate to the Trust, here’s the information:
