Your donation will be used for ongoing fundraising efforts. We organize multiple events, some of which have small upfront costs (example: printing t-shirts for a fundraiser). After that, all collected funds are donated to the selected charity or organization in Ukraine. Such practice will continue as long as Ukrainian people require war relief support. The Board of Directors, the Executive committee, active members and supporters who work on the projects of the organization, are all volunteers.
