How You Can Help Ukraine
Like many, you may feel powerless in the face of the war in Ukraine. You may feel that there is nothing you can do to help. Perhaps you feel frustrated with the lack of intervention from Western nations to resolve this terrible situation. History has taught us that not taking action, makes outcomes far worse, than taking steps to do what we can. Let me take this time to let you know every single effort makes a difference, and here is how you can, indeed, make a difference.
One of my clients is Ukrainian-Canadian, and most of her family still lives in Ukraine. She currently lives in Brussels and has put her entire business on hold to help with the effort. She is working directly with Team Humanity to help refugees fleeing into neighboring Moldova. It is a perilous journey in an active war zone, with destroyed roads, limited transportation and fuel, and now freezing temperatures.
This organization was extremely helpful informing us what to do, what to expect, connecting us with people who can meet my family at the border, find their stay etc. The value of such help is immense when people are in distress. And now we ar evacuating people daily from the worsening conditions of the war.
Here is how you can directly help her effort at Team Humanity:
Anonymous (2) $89 USD
Jennie $25 USD
Tanya Schoenroth $50 CAD
Web242 Media Inc. $150 USD
Please email me email@example.com if you donate. It is important to show how every amount can help!

A big shout-out to Diib, for allowing us to repost their material. The Ukraine war also has a direct and personal impact for them. Many of their team are Ukranian, working remotely, and also directly impacted by the conflict.
