๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Our Story

I was born in Kharkiv. My wife was born and raised in Odessa.
We live in NYC, but many of our relatives and friends are in Ukraine. On February 24th, 2022, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin invaded independent sovereign nation of Ukraine.
While many of us can choose to ignore this war, that choice is a privilege that others don't have. Ukraine needs your help.

๐Ÿ™ Help Our Hometown

My wife's cousin, Anton Odegov, is buying food, medicine, and other supplies and brings them directly to the Territorial Defense. This is a group of civilians who now are bearing arms and volunteering to defend the city by the soldiers' side.
The following video shows this effort in action.

Territorial Defense Wishlist

We update this list based on the team's immediate needs.
If you can donate any amount, please, please do. Anton will immediately get supplies to the people. We guarantee validity that the money will be spent on Defense of Odessa.
