I heard today about a Ukrainian pet food company trying to donate 200 tons of pet food to animals there. The man’s name is Android Kucherenko, and he is in Lviv. There is an email address for asking about making donations in US dollars, [email protected].

Anyone know anything about this? I do think it’s legit.

What started off as a rental car trip to the Ukrainian border to transport refugees has led to the creation of a nonprofit organization delivering medical supplies and tactical gear into the heart of Ukraine. Finkelman and his new colleagues have named the organization Zhyty Khochu, meaning “I Want to Live,” inspired by a line from a famous 1890 Ukrainian work by Lesya Ukrainka called “Contra Spem Spero!”
Contributions to “I Want to Live” can be made on its website.

A list of verified charities helping Ukraine can be found online.

I've seen these felted yellow-and-blue hearts a few times on photos in FB, one of the posts went viral and I finally could find the author.
Her name is Tatiana, this is her FB:
https://www.facebook.com/SumtsovaTatiana
And this is her Etsy shop:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/MyFeltedToys

She lives in Sumy, city at north-east Ukraine which was recently de-occupied. She wrote on her FB that she will be happy to create and sell more of such hearts to help her family to recover and to donate part of the money to other people who need help.

The whole world knows now that photo from Bucha with woman's hand with red nail varnish. Her name was Iryna Filkina.
Her daughter, Olga, opened a foundation which she called "Mama Ira" to help children orphaned during the war.

In the topic about Russia, I already recalled the Museum of the Toilette history. I've been there and it's a very interesting museum. Now you can visit it virtually and help Ukraine

This is a new charity project
🙏
of the team of the Museum of the Toilette History (Kyiv, Ukraine) with interesting, entertaining and informative videos for the whole family.
All funds for the sold video tours will send to help the affected Ukrainian families, the military and the elderly.
💙
💛

Each episode of the Museum of the Toilette history video tour is the short story with facts about hygiene and toilet culture and unique exhibits from the Museum of the Toilette History.
The first episode is already in Ukrainian and English on the museum's website:

Get ready to be surprised!

Daniel Samohin (born in ISR of Russian parents - this is his home rink, I believe) is among those scheduled to perform in this fundraiser show for Ukraine at the Las Vegas (Nevada) Ice Center this Saturday, May 21 at 1:15 pm: https://www.instagram.com/p/CdLtSU-r4Qi/
Ticket info:
"Join us in raising money to help the families in Ukraine. This exhibition will donate all the proceeds to UNICEF."

ETA that Daniel's father, Igor, was a pairs skater who represented the former Soviet Union.
