The Earthquake Relief Sticker Pack 
On Feb 6, 2023, a 7.8 earthquake rocked southern and central Turkey and northern and western Syria. For weeks, constant intense aftershocks followed the main quake which was one of the strongest earthquakes to impact the Levant and was felt across the Eastern Mediterranean. Entire blocks of buildings collapsed resulting in thousands displaced in search of shelter and safety. The death toll was an estimated +58,000 dead in Turkey and +8,000 in Syria, a country that has already been suffering from over a decade of war. Unfortunately, the news cycle of today is relentless and this massive natural disaster has already been filed and archived despite the people still needing humanitarian aid, support, and compassion.
In an effort to make some contribution to our fellow humans across the world, Shitty Wine Memes has teamed up with Lebanese wine & hospitality creatives @farrahberrou of @b_for_bacchus , @the.entanese , and @aylamortada to create a sticker pack of each collaborator's individual style. Each pack includes 6 stickers and $10 for every sticker pack sold will be sent to Sawa For Development & Aid @sawaforaid
(US Shipping Only)

By Farrah:
“Where are you really from?” is a not-so-covert way of pointing out that someone is different or doesn’t belong. They’re foreign and stand out. They’re clearly from some *other* place.

Even within Lebanon, the question is asked and evokes the same othering but on a micro level in a tiny country. When you ask “where are you really from?” what you’re really asking is: Which village are you from? Are you a refugee? What religion are you? What box can I put you in? 

In the context of wine, this loaded question’s answer can carry a lot of weight and not always in a good way. 

Like Cinsault through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. With all the catastrophes and loss of the last 3 years, the one thing that has been grounding throughout for me is that none of it is permanent. Happiness and pain are fleeting. Change is the only constant and there is no guarantee that that change will be positive, just different and inevitable. These truths can be sad yet comforting. 

This bilingual sticker features an hourglass made up of two overlapping wine glasses with “nothing is permanent” in English and “everything is temporary” is Arabic.
