The people of Ukraine need us to support them.
I don't need to expand on the awful situation Ukrainian civilians are suffering. Many of our readers would like to help.
There are many ways. We have booked accommodation through AirBnB - bought digital prints that once downloaded give funds straight away to the artist, and products on Etsy we don't want to ever receive - just to get some money to the people who need it.
Here are some other ways you can help - as SBI (the wonderful team at the company who host my sites) has advised us:
World Central Kitchen (WCK)
WCK provides cooked meals on the ground to communities impacted by natural disasters or humanitarian crises. Their mission is simple: “When people are hungry, send in cooks. Not tomorrow, today.”
In support of refugees escaping the violence, WCK began serving hot, nourishing meals in Poland within a day of the initial attack and are now set up at eight border crossings. They are also looking into the possibility of delivering meals each day to families on the Ukrainian side of the border, waiting in line across the eight entry points.

Polish Humanitarian Action (PAH)

Let us support Ukraine is in the unfortunate geography to be the buffer zone to one man's ambitions and the rest of Europe.
However you choose to do so, please support the Ukrainian people who have shown incredible courage and fortitude.
