this is for all our friends out there…especially for all our international friends and artists asking how to help us after the big damages we had after the bad earthquakes!
As you know those damn earthquakes hit Italy pretty hard right where we live, in the middle of Emilia-Romagna area (Cities of Modena, Ferrara, Bologna); in the explaining words of our friend, and beautiful soul, Mary Cutrufello:
“This hasn't made big news here stateside, but the Emilia-Romagna province of Italy has been hit with separate 5.8 and 6.0 magnitude earthquakes in the last 10 days! Needless to say, it's a mess over there. This is where I go every year when I go to Italy to play, and it's ground zero for some of my best friends in the world! I mean, I got on my computer first thing Tuesday morning, after the (US Memorial Day) holiday, and my Twitter feed was almost all in Italian. And all with the hashtag #terremoto. After I figured out what #terremoto meant (earthquake), I was like OMG noooooo! Immediately I checked in with a bunch of my friends (it was midafternoon there), who were all in one piece, thank goodness...but then I was like, how can I help? From the other side of the Atlantic, my options are limited, but thanks to the internet, i'm not completely helpless!
Here's what I'm doing right this second to help: ALL THE CD SALES AND 50% OF THE TIP JAR FROM THE JUNE 1ST CD RELEASE SHOW WILL BE SENT DIRECTLY TO ITALY TO HELP WITH RELIEF EFFORTS!
The earthquakes have received very little coverage in America, but that doesn't matter to the tens of thousands of displaced Italians!”
By the grace of God we are blessed to promote and to work with some of the best music scene in the world made by true artists becoming easy our greatest friends…as Mary did we had many calls from the other side of the pond from people makin’ sure we are ok…and yes, we are ok!...but with a big scratch in our hearts because drivin’ 20 minutes from where we live we have our people loosing homes, jobs, churches and a lots of venues representing their lives!
Actually the economy of this land is the biggest problem to resolve…less talk, more action…we are ready to start the reconstruction!...italians are doin’ and incredible job collecting items for the displaced people showing how big a heart can be!....and now it’s time to raise money!
