Comfort for the Children of Ukraine

An earlier toy drive

I am overjoyed to be sharing this news with you. The Greater Good website ( has come up with an idea to give the children of Ukraine solace during this horrific time. As you know, the families of Ukraine have to face the very difficult choice between leaving their homes and uprooting their families, or attempting to shelter in place, not knowing how long they can safely stay. Either choice is more difficult than anyone of us can imagine.

We can help ease these hardships by sending a small token of hope and distraction during these trying times. A stuffed animal, an art & craft item or a simple toy to play with can make all the difference for a child living through this heartbreaking ordeal. Give a child a sense of security, and a distraction from the devastation surrounding them.

With the Greater Good partners on the ground – a group called Fundacja Kooperacja – toys will be given out to refugee children that are displaced because of the crisis.

You can bring a smile to a child’s face by sending a toy, or give more to spread the joy to 3 or 5 children by sending 3 toys, or 5 toys. You can find the information at

This is our chance to make a difference. The joy you will feel is palpable.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.

Love One Another
