How to help Ukraine NOW. Verified, updated, with love.
What happened on 24th of February 2022 is impossible to believe. Russian tanks crossed the Ukrainian border, planes entered its airspace, missile launchers surrounded Ukrainian cities. Despite assurances from Kremlin-backed propaganda outlets, who call this a “special operation” – it is, in fact, the mass murder of Ukrainian civilians.
We stand in solidarity and support of the Ukrainian people and everyone affected by this war, and wish to use our platform to help. We call out to keep showing what is happening in Ukraine, keep showing the truth. This is a war in Europe, and Ukraine is stopping the force that may aggressively enter our homes anytime under the pretext of saving civilians. We have a resolving power to support those in need. Here is a list of useful resources from places to donate and find key information, to creative responses and fundraisers.
We want this list to grow, so if you’d like to suggest an addition please email email@example.com with the subject line Ukrainian resource list.
