Off topic: Devastating earthquake in Italy - Please donate to help!
Thread poster: Aniello Scognamiglio
Dear fellow translators and interpreters,
by now you have surely heard of the devastating earthquake in the city of L’Aquila, Abruzzo, Italy. It has made headline news around the world.
The quake killed over 285 people to date, injured hundreds more and destroyed thousands of buildings, leaving 50,000 homeless. A series of strong aftershocks since the main quake on monday have caused further damage, hampering rescue efforts and further terrorising the population in the town of L'Aquila and surrounding villages.
All translators and interpreters can help by donating money. Even the smallest amount is much appreciated. If every ProZ.com user/member donates only 1 dollar, the ProZ community can make a major contribution to the earthquake relief effort.
I have compiled a list of organizations (not complete, of course) with the help of our colleage Dragana Molnar M.A. How to donate:
Croce Rossa Italiana (Italian Red Cross)
Swift Code - BNLIITRR
Cause: PRO TERREMOTO ABRUZZO
Further information in English and German:
You can also donate to Protezione Civile Nazionale (Italian Civil Protection): http://www.protezionecivile.it/index.php

UNICREDIT BANCA DI ROMA
