The start of artist Lina Gordievski’s Ukrainian Collection
It’s been a difficult week for everyone. The Ukrainian people do not deserve to be attacked. Full stop. We can start to feel helpless and disconnected, well really it’s feeling helpless and overwhelmed by so much information (and sadly, misinformation) and so many heartbreaking images and videos. If we can help these brave people in small ways or big ways, it’s still helping. I’ve rounded up some organizations, fundraisers, retailers, and small businesses who are supporting the cause. This is a mix of those that were sent to me, some shared by others, and those that I’ve come across myself. No doubt I’m missing some so please free to comment below or DM me on Instagram!
Organizations + Fundraisers
USA for UNHCR, UN Refugee Agency
International Rescue Committee
Global Giving to help Ukranian Pediatric Cancer Patients
Retailers + Small Businesses
Juniper Print Shop. 100% of the net proceeds of the sales from the Ukrainian Collection will be donated to Lifting Hands.
If you’re local to Massachusetts, Eater Boston has a list of what restaurants are hosting fundraisers.
La Ligne. A portion of this week’s online sales will be donated to Children in Conflict.
Magic Playbook is offering a digital download activity set with 100% net proceeds benefitting Ukrainian refugees via CARE International (you choose the amount to donate, $10 is suggested).
Mochi Kids and Amanda Jones are selling a “Make a Love not War” t-shirt. All profits are going to the International Rescue Committee.
Lina Gordievski, an artist from Ukraine, is selling beautiful pieces of art (the collection has come together quickly so the beneficiary isn’t confirmed yet nor the final # of pieces). Sign up for her newsletter to get the heads up when the collection is live.
Lastly, I saw on Instagram that people are booking AirBnb’s in Ukraine to simply support the owners and it’s a lovely + brilliant idea.
I’ll update this post and plan on putting together a Guide on Instagram as well.
