WHAT IS WORLD UNITE FOR UKRAINE™?

World Unite for Ukraine is a movement aimed at uniting millions of people around the world in a common goal of supporting Ukrainians in surviving the war.

On June 16, 2022, a global community of top international artists, civil activists, thought leaders, actors, athletes and volunteers from the United States, Canada, Israel and all of Europe will come together to support Ukraine during this global 90+-minute event.

The event will be streamed on Mandolin on June 16 around the world in 25+ countries. Additional streams and broadcasts will be available on multiple channels and streaming platforms, as well as on-demand for at least 24 hours after the event.

With a $10M+ goal, funds raised before, during and after the stream will be deployed through certified non-profits to ease the humanitarian crisis caused by the Russian military invasion and occupation of Ukraine. Viewers will donate what they are able and gain access to the stream. Merchandise, designed and created by Moldova-born fashion designer and artist, Diana Stelin, and Ukrainian-born graphic designer, Lyudmila Kruschchuk, will also be available for purchase.

WHY NOW?

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”
— Elie Wiesel

What is happening today in Ukraine invokes images and atrocities caused by the quest for power that has repeated itself over the course of human history. We believe the world needs to unite and stand up to the injustice, pain and suffering to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine now. We can not stand by and watch while people are murdered and their natural rights to freedom are stripped from them.

The Ukrainian cause is universal, but to many of us, it is also personal. Some of us come from Russia, Ukraine, Lithuania, Belarus, Moldova, Poland and Romania. Others from the U.S, Germany, Portugal, Mexico, Italy and Spain.

Many of our grandparents fought for freedom in World War II and suffered in the Holocaust. Several of our families fled the Soviet Union in search of freedom, leaving friends and loved ones behind. Today, we are heartbroken as we watch loved ones and millions of innocent Ukrainians being attacked, displaced and murdered because they, too, want to live in a free and democratic society.

The world is full of differences deserving to be celebrated. Some of us are Jewish, others are atheist, Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, Muslim, Hindu and Sikh. Birthplace, race and religion are irrelevant in the fight for peace and human dignity.

We Refuse to Feel Powerless, Sad and Angry Over What Is Happening in Ukraine. That Is Why We Decided to Come Together and Do Something in Our Power Now.
