METRO DETROIT NONPROFIT PLATFORM LAUNCHES DONATION PORTAL DEDICATED TO SUPPORTING THE PEOPLE OF UKRAINE
SHARE Detroit introduces SHARE Ukraine, offering volunteer opportunities, donation links and events to help Ukraine during Russian invasion
DETROIT – Doing what it does best, SHARE Detroit today announced that it has launched SHARE Ukraine. SHARE Ukraine is a one-stop-shop where those who wish to support Ukrainian citizens can find trusted ways to help. SHARE Detroit and SHARE Ukraine co-founder, Sam Rozenberg, was born in Ukraine and is passionate about doing good in his home country, especially in its most urgent time of need. The new digital portal can be found at ShareUkraine.org.
"As I quell my emotions, I become increasingly committed to doing everything in my power to make a difference and be on the right side of history,” said Rozenberg. “This site is a call to action. One hundred percent of all contributions go to an organization that directs your money to help Ukraine bring light out of the darkness. All recipient organizations are nominated and vetted by people on the front lines in Ukraine, like my former classmate Tolik Lobanov, a retired general in the Ukrainian Army, now a volunteer in territorial defense force.”
The site hosts a direct connection to the Ukrainian American Crisis Response Committee of Michigan, where individuals and groups can donate supplies and volunteer to join the committee’s efforts. Donations will go directly to Ukrainians whose lives have been flipped upside down during the Russian invasion. The committee is looking for people with varied skill sets, from legal knowledge to communications to healthcare to fundraising.
In addition to the donation and volunteer opportunities, the SHARE Ukraine site hosts events fundraisers such as the Slavic Solidarity: A Dinner for Ukraine or educational webinars like JLearn Presents: The Crisis in Ukraine and its Jews.
