I’m not the kind of person who likes talking about these things; I just think it’s better not to show off when someone helps people in difficulty or in a state of emergency.
And Sardinia is now in a state of emergency. You have probably heard about the storms and floods which destroyed the North-East part of the island, and if you haven’t, then this is your chance to get to know what is happening in this part of the world.
Sardinia is my island, the place where I’ve grown up and the place which I will leave someday but that I’ll love for ever as my true and only home. I’ve decided to talk about it for this reason; I’m not saying there aren’t any other parts of the world in a state of emergency at the moment, just saying that as I AM here at the moment, I couldn’t just keep on posting my articles about fashion without telling my readers what people here are facing now.
In the photo above you can see Olbia, a beautiful city in the North-East which was the focus of the storm and where 21 people died in the last days because of the storm and the floods. Thousands of people lost their homes. I’ve decided not to post any photo of what happened because this is not the aim of my blog; I talk about fashion, so I talk about aesthetic, I talk about what’s beautiful. And this photo really shows how beautiful Sardinia is.
All those people there need some help. I haven’t been able yet to figure out a way to send money or any concrete help from abroad, but I can definitely post some Facebook pages where you can have news about what is happening in those zones and how you can help.
These are the Italian pages I could find:
Unfortunately, I haven’t found any page in English, but I’ll be happy to update this post with anything that can be useful.
It really makes me emotional thinking of what is happening simply because I love my homeland. I don’t want to stay here in this place full of beautiful beaches and landscapes but without any opportunities for young girls and boys just like me who are trying to build their future. Yet, as much as I don’t like living here, this place will always be a part of me.
Sardinia is in my veins, and I DON’T want to let it out ;)
