During the spring of 2022, I knew I wanted to do something to help the people of Ukraine.

With it being part of my family heritage, plus a desire to support peace and humanity, and help those in need... it wasn't even a question in my mind. I wanted to contribute, and the best way would be through donating a portion of painting sales. 

So I put the word out... and you responded. Paintings sold (yay)

These are a few of the paintings that left the studio during my 'Support Ukraine' campaign

Finding new homes meant I was able to donate $600 to the Canada Ukraine Foundation's humanitarian appeal.

In an email sent to donors, the foundation described what they've been able to accomplish over the last six months:

  • Delivered food boxes to 130,000 families in 21 Oblasts
  • Purchased 3 months of medicines for 100,000 people
  • Sent the first shipment of 140MT of buckwheat seed to Ukraine for planting this year
  • Delivered 160 pallets of hospital equipment / medical supplies throughout Ukraine, including 7 pallets of IFAK's
  • Completed two evacuation flights for children with brain cancer to Sick Kids Toronto
  • Arranged for training psychologists in Ukraine to treat the mental health of 5000 patients
  • Set up funding for 2000 displaced children in Ukrainian-operated summer camps in Canada
  • Delivered 8000 food boxes in Moldova and 3000 food boxes in Romania to displaced persons' families

And they say they're just getting started...

A big thank you to those who purchased a painting during the campaign - this donation wouldn't have happened without you!

In peace and love,
