Why Ukraine?

You’ll no doubt be aware of the horrific events continuing to unfold in the country, but our close connection to Ukraine has made us particularly aware of the toll the war is taking on its people—our people.

The battle for survival is a daily routine in eastern Ukraine and the need for medical and humanitarian supplies for both civilians and the army is greater than ever before. Many of our team members are volunteering on a daily basis to raise funds, organize supplies and get them delivered to where they are most needed. It’s humbling to hear their stories and see the incredible contribution they are making.

That’s why we’re pulling out all the stops to bring our audience together for an unforgettable campaign that truly makes a difference.

  • A $50 ticket feeds and supports a family of four for 4 days
  • A $75 ticket feeds and supports a family of four for 6 days
  • A $100 ticket feeds and supports a family of four for 8 days

Where Will the Funds Go?

All proceeds will go towards grassroots efforts to support the citizens of Ukraine

Our Ukrainian team is already working directly with local volunteer groups to organize and distribute food, sanitation, and medical aid to those in the most affected towns and cities across Ukraine.

The funds raised will buy more essential supplies to transport to the volunteer warehouses in western Ukraine. We’ll match every dollar or pound raised, so you know your money is having double the impact! 

The supplies will be driven by BrightLocal team members and handed to volunteers at the border for onward transport.

We will monitor and report on the progress of the aid as it makes its journey from the UK to Ukraine, so you can see exactly where your money is going and when it reaches those in need.
