Do you want to help Ukraine?
UrbanForUkraine is a charity movement gathering funding for the ones in need in Ukraine conflict zones by selling Ukraine-related products created by individual artists all around the globe. We believe that having something visual helps spread awareness long after the news headlines have changed. Sending funds directly to Ukraine is of course better than buying merchandise, but we aim to onboard people who might not otherwise consider donating money directly to Ukraine. We are soon starting selling digital artwork as well.
Russia's invasion of Ukraine has brought up an urgent need for humanitarian aid and will continue to do so for years to come. We aim to unite visual designers for gathering funding with art. All the profit from our sales is being paid to the local humanitarian charities operating in Ukraine. By purchasing a product from our store, you support the Ukrainian charities with 2-25 Eur per product. Please remember that the prices of the products include worldwide shipping fees! All the transactions to charities will be published on this site.
If you have a preference for which organization you want to send the money generated from your purchase, you can write a note during checkout. You can choose one of the below charities, or write one that is not listed, and we will submit the funds to the right organization.
Calling all brands, designers and influencers!
Do you want to join in helping Ukraine with your art? We aim to unite artists all around the globe to create artwork to support Ukrainians. Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us in Instagram.
