SHARE Detroit co-founder, Sam Rozenberg, was born in Ukrainian SSR and is passionate about doing good in his home country, especially in their most urgent time of need. Our goal at SHARE Ukraine is to provide a platform to well-meaning members of the free world (individuals and organizations) to help Ukraine directly and effectively. We are working to communicate the most urgent and vital needs as seen through the lenses of your respective interest, faith, and social outlook. The events that made these years relevant in the reels of history are repeating themselves. The threat to Ukraine is existential. If we again let the enemy succeed, as we have in 1936 to 1941, we become complicit not only in the genocide of the Ukrainian people but all genocides—genocides of the past, present, and future. If you want to donate and don't have an organization you trust fully to turn your hard-earned money into real helpful action, donate to SHARE Ukraine. You have our guarantee that 100% of your money will go to an organization that will put your money to help Ukraine to bring light out of the darkness thrusted upon them. The organizations will be nominated and vetted by people on the front lines in Ukraine, like Sam Rozenberg's classmate Tolik Lobanov, a retired general in the Ukrainian Army, now a volunteer in territorial defense forces. Our first recipient of donated funds was Come Back Alive: https://www.comebackalive.in.ua/ Through March 13th, ShareUkraine collected $11,107.12 from the friends of ShareUkraine. Our donated funds will be used to provide first aid to victims of Russian aggression and soldiers in the field. In addition, the funds will be used to provide medical aid to Russian POWs as well, per rules of war and the Geneva convention. These funds will provide over one thousand field first aid kits or basic surgical supplies for almost 100 surgeries or repair parts and repairs to damaged field tactical ambulances. For the next seven to ten days, we are collecting for a www.HelpUkraine.center, a humanitarian organization helping internally displaced civilian populations with everything from shelter, medical help, and child foster care. We already collected $3405.24 and hoping to exceed the prior week’s total.
