Do you want to help the neediest? Join Cena Sospesa

I have read about a wonderful initiative that is going viral in Milan. It is called “cena sospesa” (literally “suspended dinner”). The idea is that whenever you go for dinner at a restaurant, you can pay 10 euro towards the dinner of someone in need.

The children of Action Aid

In January 2010, while in Italy we were still in the holiday season, a massive earthquake has killed millions of people in Haiti.
