I'm fundraising to help this Family of 4 from Ukraine! Many of you know him as Eugene from Eugene Dough Sheeters on Etsy. The owner, engineer and founder of The Original Dough Sheeter and his wife and their two children! This will take a village to help, and we are now ready to ask for assistance from you, my dear friends, on how we can help a direct family from Ukraine that we all know and love!
Eugene is looking to come to Canada under a work Visa as a Ukrainian refugee. We want to help assist him and his family in rebuilding their new lives and dough sheeter business in Canada! We all want to see him thrive as a successful entrepreneur. As you know, they are leaving so much behind, including some of their family in Ukraine. Although they will be restarting their lives in Canada, their hearts will remain in Ukraine. Eugene has communicated his desire to help give back to his homeland which gave so very much to him and his family.
Many of us here cannot fathom what it would be like to have your life, family and business taken from you in a moments notice and leave the only thing you have ever known and loved behind, including some of your family, friends, children's playmates, and a business your family has put their blood, sweat and tears into, not to mention your homeland.
As much as I would love to do this on my own, I'm only one person. I'm asking for my friends and family to partner with me.
The second photo is Ivan the son of Eugene and Anzhela. He is 6 years old and loves to play with Legos.. according to his father Eugene, "Ivan is a very smart boy, he totaly understands what is going on. It is pretty difficult for him to realize that we do not have a home and cannot return to Ukraine now. ~ But it will be ok" his father says...
Ivan with the exception of only one of his other classmates were able to evacuate Ukraine, the rest are still there.
Please.. I'm asking if you can help! If all of my friends donated just $5 each that would be enough for this family to start a new life with new hope for a healthy future for Ivan and his family! The price of one cup of coffee will go towards a new Lego set for little Ivan and a place to call home once again! Let's pool together as a community and help this family!
Let's do what we can to help this family rebuild what they have lost.
