We're all reeling from what is happening in Ukraine and want to support as much as we can.
Whilst there may not be loads we can do from the UK, we can send funds to organisations who can
use your money to help those in need.
Some of you may know, I'm a knitter & crocheter. The company I use to supply my yarn etc. has a
team based in Ukraine and they are currently raising funds to help relocate and financially support
those team members who's lives have been disrupted. I've put their details below, along with details
of other organisations you may want to consider donating to.
I'll also be wearing my #StandWithUkraine crocheted heart pin, to show our European neighbours
that they're not alone.
Love Crafts Just Giving
We're providing support and help to enable the team and their family members relocate to safe destinations outside Ukraine. We have arranged hotels in major cities in Poland: Krakow, Lublin, Warsaw, and have provided daily updates to ensure the team can, if possible, reach safer locations. Many of our team are still in Ukraine, including Kyiv and Kharkiv. We are continuing to invest in local people and new ways to get them to safer locations and support them with shelter when they reach their new destinations.
Advanced payments were issued to all of our Ukrainian team on the morning of the 24th of February. We will continue to pay our Ukrainian team, whether or not their work is impacted. The team is receiving emergency financial aid from the business and donations from other team members.
The money is already being spent on essential supplies.

Come Back Alive
Since its birth in 2014, Come Back Alive has become the largest foundation providing support to the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
How Come Back Alive Helps
Our Foundation stands with the Ukrainian Armed Forces by funding purely defensive initiatives. Since 2014, we have supplied nearly 1,000 thermal scopes and over 250 reconnaissance drones. Along with this material support, we’ve supported technological advancements with 1,500 tablets containing «Armor» artillery calculation software.
Come Back Alive also conducts training to give our troops broader skill sets. Since 2015, we’ve introduced courses for medical care workers, artillerymen, snipers, sappers, and defense analysts. After arriving home from the front line of defense, our troops receive support with sports rehabilitation and the development of veteran-run businesses.
Our organization does not use funds to buy weaponry. Our mission is purely to supply technology, training, and ammunition to help save the lives of Ukrainians and help our soldiers defend Ukraine.
