  2. Thanks so much for posting (and reposting) info on the disaster and how to help! I still can’t believe this happened…it seems so unreal! It might sound crazy but I actually wish I was there to see what’s going on and help!! Is everyone YOU know ok?

    • Everyone that I know is okay. Our town was not effected like it was in Olbia. It does seem unreal, my husband and I watched the news yesterday for 5 hours in shock. Entire livelihoods are gone. :( You can help by spreading the message, a lot of people have contacted me from North America stating they’ve heard nothing in their news reports. :(

  3. Thanks so much for sharing this information, Jennifer! I’ll tweet it so others can get the message, as well!

    Hugs from Ecuador,
    Kathy
