|“Rebuilding Lives, Restoring Hope”|
As most of the world knows, the northern region of Italy was hit by devastating earthquakes during the last several months. The first earthquake in May and the aftershocks following killed 26 people and left thousand homeless and living in tents. The Emilia-Romagna region has seen the destruction of schools and elimination of workplaces in addition to the homelessness now plaguing the region.
Anna Sapphire has founded Hope for Emilia, an exciting fundraising event that will take place from July 22 to August 9, 2012 with 100% of funds raised being donated to the Emilia-Romagna region's reconstruction efforts through the bank account opened by Emilia-Romagna region. All information regarding Hope for Emilia can be found on the Hope for Emilia website. The event will feature a fashion fair, fashion shows, entertainment, an art expo, and an exciting closing party.
