Dare una mano means to lend a hand.
I was contacted by Joanne of Frutto della Passione today, asking if I’d post about the efforts to help the victims of this week’s devastating earthquake in Abruzzo, Italy.
Joanne is asking 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 want to donate to the Trust, here’s the information:
O.S.J. Charities Trust Fund for Lâ€™Aquila
Abruzzo Italy – Earthquake
Account Number: 09012 69-21310
At: CIBC 7765 Yonge Street, Thornhill, Ontario L3T 2C4
Here are some links to Italian bloggers and more information on lending a helping hand:
