&Open Mar 11, 2022
We’re writing today in support of our friends, colleagues and partners in Ukraine.
It’s moments like these where acts of care matter more than we could possibly know or describe. Luckily, we’re in a unique and fortunate position to help. Our product’s features are equipped to be used for good, so it’s time to put them to work.
Starting today, &Open is adding the following charities to our cause gift collection, all of which will assist in the Ukrainian humanitarian crisis occurring as a result of the ongoing war.
Donations to Choose Love's campaign will support projects that are providing vital aid and services to those currently in and actively fleeing the country. This includes emergency medical care, food, shelter, clothes, legal support, support for the LGBTQIA+ community and mental health support.
Red Cross teams are now on the ground in Ukraine and will continue their work to repair vital infrastructure, support health facilities and help families with life-saving food and hygiene items. As this is a rapidly-evolving crisis, donations will help those affected get food, medicine, shelter and water, as well as assist those displaced by the invasions.
The Voices of Children Foundation has been helping children affected by the war since 2015, providing psychological and psychosocial support to help them overcome the consequences of armed conflict. Today, they are providing non-stop assistance to affected children and families across the country of Ukraine, providing emergency psychological assistance and assisting in the evacuation process.
We’ve recently donated funds to these organisations ourselves, and would greatly appreciate your support in standing with the people of Ukraine during this time. 🇺🇦
It can be overwhelming to witness / experience / take in all the injustices of the moment; the good news is that they’re all connected. So if your little corner of work involves pulling at one of the threads, you’re helping to unravel the whole damn cloth.
