Like many people around the world, we at Redbubble have watched the ongoing invasion of Ukraine with rising horror. Many of the artists on Redbubble have been moved to post artwork in support of the Ukrainian people. And many customers have wondered how they—and Redbubble—can express that support in concrete ways.
We stand with Ukraine
Maybe the unfolding tragedy has made you wonder “How can I support Ukraine?” We have, too. That’s why we’re donating proceeds from pro-Ukrainian artwork, including designs by Ukrainian artists and by artists around the world in solidarity with the Ukrainian people. When you purchase products with any of these designs, Redbubble’s share of the sale will go to the International Rescue Committee and GlobalGiving’s Ukrainian Crisis Relief Fund.
How these funds support the Ukrainian people
These humanitarian organizations are mobilizing resources to save lives in Ukraine and assist refugees. They both consistently receive high ratings from independent charity evaluators for effectiveness and transparency, so you can rest assured these funds will go to help people who need it the most.
And, as always with Redbubble, any purchase you make from a Ukrainian artist will put money directly into that artist’s hands. This kind of direct person-to-person transfer of funds is a powerful way of showing practical solidarity with Ukraine.
Art can make a difference
Whenever people have felt helpless about the state of the world, artists have helped us all to feel less alone in our outrage. These artists are doing that essential work and we honor them for it. Until this crisis ends and Ukraine is once again peaceful and free, Redbubble hopes our giving from these collections will also help, in some small way, to make a real difference in the lives of people suffering from this violent invasion.
