As we all know, there is a lot going on in the world right now. Unfortunately, there is distress in the Ukraine and as people on this planet, I truly believe it is our duty to take care of other human beings and help the best we can. Homes, schools and hospitals are being invaded, air strikes are being launched, makeshift shelters are what a lot of people are living in now and so much worse. Millions of lives are at risk and if you are looking for ways to help, here are some great resources!
