We will be transferring the money directly to the National Bank of Ukraine.
The National Bank of Ukraine has opened a special account specifically to accept donations in support of the Ukranian armed forces. This fund is a recommended donation beneficiary according to this thread from the official Ukraine twitter account, as well as the Ukrainian government's official website about their war effort.
NBU has also opened a special account for humanitarian donations, so people who aren't comfortable donating directly to a military effort can still feel comfortable contributing.
Hi, I'm Teresa! I'm the [one & only] person behind Knezek.art.
I've been working the last few months at getting a charitable art business off the ground. If you visit my site shop.knezek.art, you'll note everything I sell benefits some cause somewhere. (It's a work in progress, a few of the designs don't have designated beneficiary groups yet, but they will!)
Then this war broke out over in Ukraine and I wanted to help. So, first I decided to run a raffle, with original art as the prizes. The raffle, however, was not as much of a viral gangbuster as I had hoped, so I've decided to start the longer-term fundraising effort you see here.
Big charity groups have big overhead costs. Also, Ukraine is specifically asking for direct aid.
I decided not to raise funds for a big humanitarian charity because they already get tons of donations during times of crisis.
Also, and perhaps more important, I believe it's key for people to listen to the recipients when they want to support a cause. Ukraine needs help standing up against the Russian invasion. They are specifically asking people to donate directly, so 100% of the funds can be put directly to use where they're needed most in Ukraine.
The raffle raised $400, which I sent to the NBU Armed Forces Fund.
I'm finishing the four block prints with hand-painted backgrounds this weekend (March 19-20) and they will be delivered or mailed to the winners next week!
