For the first time in a long time the world seems to be on the same page. What is happening in Ukraine is not okay. Few of us can imagine what being a Ukrainian feels like. We watch the news from afar, turn our attention to social media, and collectively wonder what we can do to help. Many of us are at a loss, so we do nothing. Despair gets us nowhere. Here are some ideas for how you can show your support for Ukraine. We can start by conserving our already depleted reservoirs of compassion by distancing ourselves from constant news feeds. Witnessing negativity breeds negativity, let’s focus our attention on positive actions.
Monetary donations for medical supplies, food, and hygiene are in high demand. Some reputable organizations collecting donations are:
Sunflower of Peace- https://www.facebook.com/sunflowerofpeace/
Doctors Without Borders- https://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/what-we-do/countries/ukraine
FREE options that make a positive impact are prayers, these cannot be under estimated! Participating in a peaceful protest is another idea. You can find or organize one near you at: https://standwithukraine.live/
Let’s take positive action and show Ukraine we stand with them.
