There is an invasion of a sovereign country underway.
People are dying. People are fleeing. People are suffering.
Some people not in the region tune out, because it’s too much. Others tune out, because they don’t think it affects them. Others get obsessive, can’t turn away.
How are you dealing with the war unfolding before our eyes?
It’s yet another blow to the stability of the world, and to the psyche.

Here are organizations that we’re focusing efforts on in support of Ukraine and Ukrainians who are trying to fight off an aggressor. These are gathered from trusted sources, however you should always vet any organization yourself before donating your money:
- United Help Ukraine
- Razom for Ukraine
- Voices of Children Foundation
- International Medical Corps
- Nova Ukraine
- The ICRC (Red Cross)
You could also find a local effort that is gathering supplies to ship. These are organizing in many cities, since there are Ukrainians basically all over the world. Just search for “local Ukraine donations [city]” to find them.
Posting a list of resources is hardly anything. Members of the team here are taking more direct actions in our personal lives also, in the ways that we are able based on skills and abilities and resources. We encourage you to do the same.
Tell us what you think.
