Ways to help Ukraine

The destruction unfolding in Ukraine is hard to fathom, and heavy on our hearts. We are sending well wishes of hope and safety to the lovely people of Ukraine. In these uncertain times, we want to do our part in helping our fellow creatives. From a fresh flower farmer, to other various artists, we hope to raise awareness and provide you with direct ways to help these innovative individuals, in a time when lending a helping hand is crucial. 

 Villa Verde Farm, Kyive, run by a mother and daughter duo, lost everything in a Russian airstrike earlier this week. The owners, Yulia and her mother, grow hydrangeas, peonies, and other crops.  The greenhouses still stand, but unfortunately all of the equipment that keeps the greenhouse running have been destroyed and all electricity and heating have been cut off.

If you'd like to help, please visit their instagram, @villaverde.farm for more details, or you can donate directly via PayPal to the email: aleksandrmi@icloud.com

 Support Hospitals in Ukraine

Project C.U.R.E. is providing humanitarian assistance to the people of Ukraine and the hospitals under immense strain, and will be on standby to assist with any requests they receive for medical supplies and equipment. Project C.U.R.E invests 96 cents out every dollar donated back into its programs to ensure the health and well being of those in need.

World Kitchen

World Kitchen is set up at eight border crossings across the country, serving hot, nourishing meals to all in need. They are also supporting local restaurants  preparing meals in five Ukrainian cities, including Odessa and Lviv. 

Razom for Ukraine

Razom

Razom was born out of the Revolution of Dignity in 2014, when millions of people worked together and risked their lives to build a pathway to a better future for Ukraine. They raise funds for Ukrainian children with spinal muscular atrophy or SMA, Veteran services, toy drives and various relief funds, like the current fund for medical supplies going straight to Ukraine.  Razom also uses its platform to raise awareness, and uplift Ukrainians.
