Boston Aide for Ukraine

Our names are Daniel and Ilana Pavlotsky, we are brother and sister team that live in Boston who are first generation Ukrainian Americans, along with Briana Tautiva, we are raising funds to help send immediate aid to Ukraine.
The funds we are raising are to help get the donated goods we are collecting overseas to Ukraine.    
Donations will be sent to a small town outside of Ukraine in Romania as well as Poland. There, these supplies will be distributed to refugees fleeing the war with the help of the local community which whom we are connected to.
Every dollar and donation helps, and 100% of all proceeds will go towards the cause.

3 Common questions we are asked:

How you are related to the person(s) you are raising funds for?
- The funds are intended to cover shipping costs for the goods we are collecting locally in Boston. Those items are being sent to two individuals who are helping manage the Romanian Border crossing from Ukraine. They have asked to remain anonymous, however, they are personal friends of ours whom we made contact years ago during our first time helping with the 2014 crisis and other trips we have done. 

What is your withdrawal plan to get the funds from your GoFundMe to the intended beneficiary/ies?
- Right the funds are going to be deposited into the Boston Aide for Ukaine non-profit business bank account. These funds will directly be managed in order to buy supplies/packing materials and cover costs for DHL as well as international shipping which is very costly. Furthermore we will financially support groups both inside and around Ukraine in helping refugees. Our organization recently was listed both federally and with the state of Massachusetts.

How the funds will be spent (please be specific as possible)?
- Boxes, tape, packing materials
- Purchasing additional items to be sent that are missing (i.e. anything from the list above and further)
- Covering DHL costs for shipping
- Covering international customs taxes
- Supplementing organizations we are partnered with to support refugees

*Please note, this is not a one time shipment we are raising funds for, this will be an ongoing effort for the foreseeable future*
Thank you and Slava Ukraina!
