Nia Vardalos Issues Appeal for Greek Relief

In a new video, actress, author, producer and proud Greek American Nia Vardalos encourages everyone to support The Hellenic Initiative’s latest endeavor to help Greece.


Vardalos, who is spending a lovely summer in Greece, has been documenting her trip via Facebook, in effort to show that Greece is beautiful, welcoming, and very-much open for tourists. She’s gone a step further in her quest to help Greece, as a spokesperson for The Hellenic Initiative‘s Greek Crisis Relief Campaign. Of the $1,000,000 goal, more than $6000 has been raised to date.

“Our family — the people of Greece — is in crisis…” ~ Nia Vardalos

Since its inception in 2012, The Hellenic Initiative has donated more than $2,500,000 to crisis relief causes, and more than $7,000,000 to economic development. Greece Needs Your Help
