A devastating earthquake hit L'Aquila and other towns and villages in central Italy.

The Italian Red Cross is doing a fantastic job providing relief and assistance to those affected, and I'm sure would appreciate any donations.

(Do be careful when donating your money. Make sure it's going to the relief effort, and not into someone's pocket. Unfortunately there have been a spate of incidents recently where people claim to be collecting for charity.)
