Ciao ragazzi,

Siete gia' stati magnifici stando tanto vicino a Lola in questo primo mese, ed è veramente la cosa più bella che possiamo fare! Spero che anche quando il sole splende nei weekend, potremo starle vicino,  così che il sole splenderà anche per lei.

Siete stati in tantissimi a chiedermi cosa possiamo fare per lei oppure cosa mandare a Lola. Quindi l'unico altro suggerimento che mi e' venuto in mente sarebbe questa pagina.
Mi farebbe piacere se invece di mandarle qualcosa adesso, potessimo aiutarla a non preoccuparsi del futuro. Raccogliendo qui quello che possiamo, unendo gli sforzi e le nostre forze, Lola potra' poi attingere dai fondi nel momento del bisogno. 

Io le ho parlato dicendole una piccola white lie perché vorrei mantenere un minimo di SORPRESA per lei.
Le ho detto che questa sarebbe stata una pagina per gli amici lontani che invece di spendere soldi in spedizioni varie, le offrivano un 'pensierino alternativo'.  Le ha fatto piacere l'idea; con il suo magnifico sorriso e gli occhioni grandi che dicevano di si. 

E invece la GRANDE SORPRESA sarebbe che noi tutti facciamo uno piccolo sforzo e un bel giro di parola per aiutarla a raccolgliere il più possibile, così che l'aiutiamo a più non posso anche sotto questo aspetto.
Vorrei davvero riuscire a coprirle tutti i grandi costi iniziali: per lo meno casina e macchinina. Quindi ecco, se potete, come potete, questo è un altro modo per aiutarla in questi mesi difficili.

E allora ho deciso di chiamare la nostra paginetta: LOLI BACK TO THE TOP! Cosi portiamo Loli alla prossima cima, al prossimo traguardo. 

Grazie in anticipo,
Laura, Loli, family and friends :)

Hi all,

I want to help my fantastic sister go BACK TO THE TOP again. As many of you might already know, at the end of March Loli was involved in a tragic accident whist ice-climbing in the Italian Alps with two other friends. The unfortunate outcome is very serious for her – she will never walk again.
Despite this, my little heroine - who has spent most of her life challenging herself on amazing rock and ice climbs around Europe - keeps fighting hard to find the light and a reason to continue. She is showing just how strong and determined she is fighting this fight, just like she continuously fought to climb to the top of her beloved mountains, snowy peaks, waterfalls and glaciers. Needless to say, our hearts are broken. We - her family, her friends - will be there for her throughout this new, difficult adventure.
With this pledge, I am asking all people who share her love (alpinists, mountaineers, climbers, nature lovers, etc.) to help her with the more practical side of things. Her life will need to change a lot; but I want her to focus on rehabilitating her mind and body without the worry (or panic) of to how to afford the funds to adjust to her new life.
I would like for this to be a SURPRISE and also for it to send a POSITIVE message to her. She needs to know that she is surrounded by good and caring people. A message of hope! A message that will lift her spirit to the top.
With this project I am hoping to raise enough money to allow her to afford the initial big costs of renovation for her house and for getting her a new car with the necessary facilities. My hope is to let her choose which gift to focus on once the fundraising is over as I do not know yet what the right priority is or the order of the necessities (I am also learning a lot, along with her at the moment).
We could even ask her to send you updates and pictures during her recovery so we give her the opportunity to say Thank You more personally and show you how she is benefitting from your kindness.
This is just my first draft of the page, so apologies if it doesn't make too much sense at the moment. I am still totally emotional! I will try to improve it in the next few days. Thanks for reading this, if you got this far down! And please pass on this message,

Laura, Loli, family and friends :)
