How YOU can help the Ukrainians fight to survive

How To Help Ukraine — Even The Military

By Beth Comery for the Providence Daily Dose

In a show of support for the people of Ukraine, the State House dome has been illuminated blue and yellow. But here is how we can actually help. 

I have chosen two reputable media outlets in the hope that they have vetted the charitable organizations they are suggesting. (This is my way of telling you that I have not vetted them.) All relevant links are in the articles.

The Washington Post suggests: Voices of Children, a charitable organization based in Ukraine; CARE; Save the Children; and the wonderful José Andrés who is already in Europe with his World Central Kitchen providing meals in Romania, Poland, and even Ukraine!

NPR also likes Voices of Children, as well as UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders, and more.

Until recently I would have considered myself a pacifist, but right now I wish I could ship a boatload of Stinger missiles to President Zelenskyy wrapped up in a bow. And apparently I can!

The WashPo tells us:

The National Bank of Ukraine has created an account where people from around the world can donate to the country’s military.

There you have it: Putin has turned this bleeding-heart liberal into an arms dealer.
