Keep Ukrainian Scholars and Journalists Safe

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Brandon Spars . I am a teacher and scholar who has worked closely with the non-profit European Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. My friends in Ukraine are helping scholars, independent journalists from dozens of non-profit publications and people in need with protective gear and medical supplies, first aid, evacuation from dangerous zones and providing safe places to work. There are no small or big donations; any amount will make a difference. This fundraiser will provide immediate assistance to people who are in desperate need. Over the year academy’s partners and volunteer teams have supported over 300 people in Ukraine and they need your support to continue what they are doing! I have never been inspired so deeply by a cause, but I have never worked with such amazing people. The money you donate will go directly to individuals I know and care about very much!

The team in Ukraine is thankful to each of you for helping with their mission! Many thanks to the CEO of Heavy.Inc, Simon Assaad, and his team for funding the purchase of the ambulance, water cleaning devices, plate carriers, jackets and sleeping bags!

— Generators (5-8kw)
— Powerbanks
— Protective eyewear
— Fleece jackets
— Plate carriers and hardbody armor LIII/LIV
— Tactical backpacks (55L)
