Get a Portrait - Help Ukraine

October 1 


Sign up here 


On February 24th Russia started a full-scale war against Ukraine.

Ukrainian people are brave and strong and they are fighting for their freedom.

As you can imagine winter in Ukraine is pretty harsh, many places will be without gas and electricity. 

With this Fundraiser, I would like to help them as much as I can. 

I went to Ukraine in May and in August and I have one more trip planned in October.

My whole family and my friends live in Kyiv, Ukraine.
