Merchandise, designed and created by artists including Moldova-born fashion designer Diana Stelin, Ukrainian-born graphic designer Lyudmila Krushchuk and others, will also be available for purchase. All proceeds will go to aid the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

Our lead nonprofit partner is The U.S.-Ukraine Foundation (USUF). USUF is a U.S.-based strategic “do tank”, headquartered in Washington, D.C. working on the ground in Ukraine since 1991. USUF will be responsible for collecting all donations. The organization will distribute funds to its NGO partners on the ground in Ukraine. Funds will also be allocated to logistic infrastructure to accelerate the delivery of aid.
By donating what you can, you make a real-world impact on the lives of Ukrainians.
WHO ARE WE? And WHY NOW?
“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”
— Elie Wiesel
What is happening today in Ukraine invokes the images and atrocities of WWII and the ethnic cleansing and murder of an entire generation of Jewish Europeans. We must never forget the evil and horror that tyranny and hate can and is inflicting on another generation—beginning in Ukraine.
The Ukrainian cause is universal, but to many of us it is also personal. Some of us come from Russia, Ukraine, Lithuania, Belarus, Moldova, Poland and Romania. Others from the U.S, Germany, Portugal, Mexico, Italy, and Spain. Many of our grandparents fought for freedom in World War II and suffered in the Holocaust. Several of our families fled the Soviet Union in search of freedom, leaving friends and loved ones behind.
Some of us are Jewish, others are atheist, Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, Muslim and Hindu. Birthplace, race and religion are irrelevant in the fight for peace and human dignity. Just as not all Germans were Nazis, nor are all Russians Putin-sympathizers.
Today, we are heartbroken as we watch loved ones and millions of innocent Ukrainians being attacked, displaced and murdered because they, too, want to live in a free and democratic society.
WE REFUSE TO FEEL POWERLESS, SAD, AND ANGRY OVER WHAT PUTIN IS DOING. THAT IS WHY WE DECIDED TO COME TOGETHER AND DO SOMETHING IN OUR POWER…NOW!
