We are a small team at Rational Games, a small nonprofit foundation. Based in Berlin, and together with our friends at the registered nonprofit CRISP (www.crisp-berlin.org) we just want to do something tangible to ease the horrific situation of our neighbors in Ukraine. So after six weeks of dedicated work, we have found:
1. 5 top-quality German-built generators (6-16 kW) to be purchased from Könner & Soehne, a highly reputable manufacturer in southern Germany.
2. Logistics partners in Poland and Germany who will physically transport this shipment to our recipients in Ukraine, at no cost.
3. An identified recipient partner on the ground who can receive the goods and document the impact. For this, we have chosen the Khmelnytskyi region, in Western Ukraine, where locals and internally displaced people can regroup and recover at "Points of Indestructibility", tented warming stations and community centers.
WHAT ARE “POINTS OF INVINCIBILITY”?
In November 2022 the Ukrainian government announced the start of a POI program, a network of “pop-up” shelters where citizens can come to stay connected and get warmed. They are open around the clock, and are free for a temporary stay, Citizens can recharge mobile phones, contact their loved ones and in some places even cook or heat food. First aid kits are also available.
Each shelter can host 40 to 500 people, and there are now 4000 of them across the company with plans to expand to 15000. They open automatically if emergency power outages last more than 24 hours.
This means that our donation is going directly to end users, no middlepersons, no administration. 100% impact.

The delivery will be overseen by the Ukrainian Civil Protection Service in this oblast (region).
All we need now is funding, specifically to raise EUR 20K through this platform.
Can you help? The situation really is dire.
We thank you!
