Ukraine Refugee Crisis
As we all know, over seven million Ukrainians have been displaced by the war with Russia. Over two million have made their way to Poland. Having seen the incredibly distressing circumstances over the course of the war, we've decided to go to Poland and offer as much assistance to Ukrainian refugees as possible at the border and in Krakow. Although the Ukrainian people have pushed back Russian forces, the needs in Poland have not diminished.
Given that most Ukrainians are leaving their homes only with what they can carry, we hope to offer supplies and transportation to help people with their forced evacuations. Funds will help to purchase essential goods and supplies and help us provide transportation from the border to Krakow and beyond. Funds will primarily be used to purchase:
- Backpacks and duffle bags as many refugees are arriving in Poland carrying what they could grab in their arms
- Prepaid debit cards
- Transportation costs
- Any other supplies as requested when we arrive in Poland

We will do our best to use all funds while we are in Poland. We will be there ten days or longer, and any funds that we cannot use prior to leaving will be donated to World Central Kitchen and Polish Humanitarian Action.
Thank you for your support,
Honor and Support the people of Ukraine by embracing Ukrainian Easter Traditions. Join us by baking Ukrainian paska bread and dying Easter eggs.
In Ukraine, bread is the symbol of life. It represents peace and friendship. Forgiveness and enduring memory. Since ancient times bread has been highly honored as a gift from above.
For generations, Paska has been the bread made in kitchens throughout the regions of Ukraine on Good Friday. The timing of Easter, the Christian holiday, more or less coincides with the pre-Christian ancient festival of spring called Velykden. For this reason, the celebration of Easter incorporates many ancient rituals, including the making of Paska.
Try out these recipes and let us know how they turn out!
