December and January’s Global Charity: National Italian American Foundation

December and January's Global Charity: National Italian American Foundation

On August 24th an earthquake destroyed large parts of central Italy and took 300 lives. Two months after, October 26th, Italy was struck again by an earthquake. There are immeasurable amounts of destruction from these natural disasters and Italy can use all the help we can give. For the month of December, Adda will be donating a percentage of our proceeds to a charity in the country of Italy. We chose the National Italian American Foundation because we feel this charity has been doing a tremendous job with providing relief for the Italians whose lives were disturbed and affected by the earthquakes.

NIAF managed to raise half of a million dollars within 24 hours after the earthquake in August. It is very crucial to offer immediate relief in these sort of events, though their communities are still struggling. NIAF notes on their website, “…it will also take years to rebuild these stricken communities, and 100% of all donations we receive will go towards those people in need and returning their lives back to normal. Please help the National Italian American Foundation, and our partners throughout the Italian American community, to raise funds for our Italian family and for the country that we love and hold so close to our hearts especially during this time of need.”
