I will be honest, I don’t really know what to say about this week. I was talking to a friend about how it’s become hard to keep, I don’t know, putting one foot in front of the other while all sorts of terrible things are happening around the world. It’s easy to slip into feeling helpless. Honestly, I feel like it’s weird to pretend like everything is fine and also weird to address such a horrific world event and then just…. keep doing my regular job. When my regular job is just simply not important in the grand scheme of things. I was getting whiplash on my phone yesterday scrolling through Instagram stories between videos coming out of Ukraine and “regular” content. I finally just put my phone away.
For now, I figured I’d make this post specifically about ways you can help. I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling sick and heartbroken.
These three organizations kept coming up when I was searching for ways to help yesterday:
– United Help Ukraine: United Help Ukraine has a multifaceted approach, providing food, medical supplies, and support to soldiers and civilians affected by the war.
– International Committee of the Red Cross: The ICRC’s team of water engineers and doctors is on the ground in Ukraine to keep critical infrastructure in place and provide support for the victims of the conflict.
