The Russian military invasion of Ukraine continues, and people all over the world are trying to come to terms with what’s happening right now. The situation is changing every day, but one thing remains crystal clear: Ukrainians need support as they continue to face death and destruction at home.
There are many organizations that have banded together and are collecting money to give the country the resources it needs to carry on, including the humanitarian aid organizations Nova Ukraine and the Red Cross.
Meanwhile, Save the Children and Sunflower of Peace continue to raise money for the millions of children in Ukraine that are in jeopardy or have been displaced, Project C.U.R.E. is providing much-needed equipment and supplies to the country, and Ukraine Humanitarian Fund is working to provide money to those in the country who have been most affected by the war.
Donating to any or all of these charities is one way to show your support, and we recommend researching an organization before donating any money. If you would prefer to show your support while also spreading the word, purchasing one of these products is another valid option. By purchasing one of the products below, a portion of your money will go toward supporting the people of Ukraine.
