Veeno, The Italian Wine Café
to donate all profits to the Italian Earthquake fund
ON Tuesday, 6 September 2016, Veeno the
Italian Wine Café will be donating all of its profits towards providing vital
aid to those caught up in the Italian earthquake disaster. Veeno will be
partnering with a branch of Rotary International in Rieti, Italy in order to
deliver much needed essentials to those affected by the devastation.
Rotaract Rieti are working hard on the ground to supply basic necessities
including first aid equipment and personal hygiene supplies as well as batteries
and torches in order to make life a little more comfortable for survivors in the
aftermath of the earthquake.
Speaking to Nino Caruso and Andrea Zecchino, Veeno's co-founders, they said:-
"Even if we are far away from what happened, it really is the least we can do in
order to help our home country, a nation that gave us the chance to build Veeno
as it is today. Through working with the Rotary club of Rieti, we can be sure
that the funds we raise will have an immediate impact on the ground in the areas
affected by the truly awful disaster."
Profits from sales in each of Veeno's 8 cafés as well as
online, from Tuesday, 6 September 2016,
will be sent to Rotaract Rieti in order to provide immediate support.
