Small businesses interested in joining us in this initiave by adding their products to the sale, please contact Loris Scagliarini at loris@winecountry.it using the subject "Japan Relief Fund."

WineCountry.IT, LLC and EvoteckUS, LLC, two small businesses based in the San Francisco Bay Area, have decided to launch a special online sale to raise money for the Japan Quake and Tsunami Relief Fund. The products include Italian quality wines from small and boutique producers, extra virgin olive oil, the amazing Centellino wine aerator, and 4Lock for Apple iPhone, the cool, precision mount which allows you to use your device on the go, whether you drive a car, truck or bus, or ride a bike or motorcycle, just take a walk or jog in the park while pushing a baby stroller.

All products are offered for sale until Sunday, April 3, 2011, priced at 10% below their regular price in order to attract more bayers, and the two companies will donate 15% of the revenues. Customers have the option to forgo the 10% discount, bringing the donatation to the fund to 25% of the proceeds. All donations will be turned over daily via World Vision Japan Quake and Tsunami Relief online, as long as the amount raised is $50 or more. The amount of items sold, along with the name of the buyers/donors (unless otherwise requested), as well as the amount directed to the fund and date that the donations takeplace, will be published on three web sites: WineCountry.IT, LLC, EvoteckUS, LLC, and JournalsAndJourneys.com, in addition to being reported in the next WineCountry.IT e-Letter.

Journals and Journeys manages the special sale online pro-bono, passing the orders to WineCountyry.IT and EvotekUS and dividing the revenues between the two companies and the Japan Quake and Tsunami Relief Fund.

"A couple of days ago we sent out our 'Italian Wine News' e-Letter, which included five wines selected from our portfolio offered on sale to raise funds for the Jaspanese disaster," said Loris Scagliarini, President of WineCountry.IT, "when it came to mind that given the restrictive US laws regulating the shipment of alcoholic beverages across state line, our fundraising would probably be modest, since we are allowed to ship only to 37 states as California importes. Because of this, I decided to expand the offer to include not only all the wines in our portfolio rather than a definite number of selected wines, as well as other products such as organic extra virgin olive oil and the fabolous Centellino wine aerator.

"In addition," continues Scagliarini, "I added to the sale the 4Lock line of holders and mounts for the Apple iPhone, imported to the US since mid November 2010 by EvotekUS, LLC, a company of which I am the Operating Manager. There are possibly other small businesses which wish to participate in the fund raising, we are willing to cooperate with them in order to increase the quota for the Relief Fund."
