How to Support Ukraine

Many of you have asked how we can help support the people of Ukraine who are suffering the brutality of Russian attacks. Over 15 million refugees have fled their homes to find safety. Right now, the most efficient thing we can do is donate funds. We recommend these non-profit organizations:

1. World Central Kitchen: Central Kitchen provides meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises, building resilient food systems with locally led solutions. 

2. HIAS (formerly Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society): Through a consortium, HIAS provides mental health support services to vulnerable populations impacted by the conflict and strengthens the capacity of local service providers; distributes cash, food, and hygiene kits, as well as provide free legal aid and mental health counseling in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Rivne, and Poltava; andsupports safe spaces for LGBTQ people and women with children in Lviv and Chernivtsi, where shelters offer mental health consultations, legal aid, and food assistance.

3. Razom for Ukraine: provides critical medical supplies. 

3. And one more, courtesy of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert: purchase an "Is Potato" t-shirt or a mug, and 100% of Late Show’s proceeds go to World Central Kitchen (see above). Click here to order the t-shirt and click here to order the mug.You'll enjoy the t-shirt or the mug; and WCK reaps the benefits.
