IN A TIME OF CRISIS, DIRECT AID MOVES FASTER THAN LARGE CHARITIES CAN MOVE. BLUE & YELLOW IS A 501(c)3 NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION WITH A MISSION OF PROVIDING FAST AND EFFECTIVE HUMANITARIAN RELIEF TO FAMILIES IMPACTED BY THE WAR IN UKRAINE.
We are Ukrainian-born Americans whose hearts have broken along with the rest of the world watching the brutality in our home country. Like many others, we have donated thousands of dollars to charities and given everything we can to friends and family back home. But every day we receive heartbreaking calls for help from more people who are waiting for humanitarian support as the war is only getting worse.
We've realized that we can work faster than the large charities we supported. We have the phone numbers and addresses of countless people on the front line. We can personally and directly put resources in the hands of refugees who have run out of gas to flee, parents who don’t have money for food, and grandparents who need medicine today, not in two weeks or months. We need help to increase our reach.
Examples of aid we’ve personally provided so far include:
- Diapers, formula, and sanitary wipes for pregnant women in bunkers who fled the bombed hospital in Chernihiv.
- Gas for the vans of Polish volunteers struggling across the border to hand-deliver life-saving supplies.
- Backpacks full of children's supplies for kids fleeing across the Ukrainian-Polish border.
Most of the time, foundations and charities are the perfect way to provide assistance. But there are other times when aid is needed faster than large charities can move. We act instantaneously to put every dollar we get in the hands of the people who need it.
We are an approved 501c3 charity, and we work tirelessly to make your gift matter faster here than anywhere else. We believe in transparency, and we are operating on a strict volunteer basis. No one on our team is paid, and 100% of donations go to Ukrainians in need. For our donors, we provide regular updates on funds spent on Facebook and Instagram.
Please join us and stand with Ukraine.
