Contributions for flood relief

Does anyone have information on a site where we can make a contribution to the cities of Cinque Terre? They have provided us so much joy that it's the least we can do to pay a little back.

Myself and other expat women from Vernazza are working to set up an account for donations directly to the town of Vernazza. We hope to have the information soon and will post to TA immediately thereafter.

Corriere della Sera, one of the most important Italian newspaper, is organizing a contribution

I'm sorry, the article in is Italian, but you can find there a number (IT 80 O 03069 05061 100000000567 ) which indicates the bank account used for the donations

I will get the information for one here in Monterosso. @mich915, how are you guys holding up? We say a little on the news today, but haven't heard much else.

I can confirm that loveantw is correct, this is a link to the red cross italian donations bank routing number, but I don't know if your donation will go to general funds or specifically here. @mich915, sorry just saw your vernazza thread.

My daughter & I were just in Monterosso in May. I would like to send a donation to help with the relief effort there.

Stacey, we are working on setting something up easier then using the bank routing number - for now, you can donate online through the italian red cross

just make sure you choose emergenza liguria toscana, it will go to all affected by the disaster

Here is the fund set up jointly by a leading Italian newspaper (Corriere della Sera) and the TV station La 7 to the following account, IBAN (international bank account number):

IT 80 O 03069 05061 100000000567

Note that the fifth character is the letter "O", not a number.

This is an account at Banca Intesa San Paolo. The purposes of the transfer should be indicated as << Un Aiuto subito: Alluvione Levante Ligure >>

It's not terribly difficult to transfer funds from the US. I do it often. You may even be able to do it online.

Americans can donate directly to the Italian Red Cross. Use the drop-down menu to earmark donations specifically for Liguria and Tuscany

cm28,

Do you have any thoughts about donating to the Italian Red Cross? Sometimes people hesitate donating to a big national operation because they think more specific, local organizations might be better for targeting the aid, so I am wondering what you are seeing on the ground.

Best wishes to you and everyone in that area. I am up the road near Genova and therefore am able to donate directly, but obviously lots of Americans are looking for the best and simplest way to help.

@happy on the river - That's exactly what I think. The area hit was large - though Monterosso and Vernazza are publicized more, there are lots of places that the money will be spread to. Donating directly to the comune in Monterosso or Vernazza is a better option, and we are trying to figure out an easier way for Americans, Australians and others to do so without the Iban #, for example, through pay pal. We want to make this, obviously, as easy as possible.

Thank you so much for all your warm wishes. It's not easy, but it's getting done. piano, piano
