'Education is the movement from Darkness to Light'
For those who want to mark Elio's milestone, it seems appropriate to highlight Elio's favourite charity and give the gift of life long education. Elio and Maria have been supporting John Wood and Room to Read from day one, which in 15 years, has helped reach ten million children and hopes to reach another one million in 2016.
