From buying local products to donating specific items, there are plenty of ways you can give to people fighting for their homeland in Ukraine.
In Carlsville, a 90-second story on ABC World News Tonight with David Muir turned into thousands of new orders of Ukraine candles from Door County Candle Company despite having their website crash on them during the process. Door County Candle Company owner Christiana Gorchynsky – Trapani has already given $125,000 to Razom for Ukraine because of the candle sales.
On a more statewide scale, the group Wisconsin Ukrainians has been organizing trucks to carry some of the most needed items to the people fleeing their home country. Olga Halaburda says the response has been great.
