I’m currently running a fundraiser to help fill gaps in humanitarian aid in Ukraine. You can contribute to it here. You can also participate in my “read-an-intro” fundraiser.

If you’d like to hear about other opportunities to help Ukraine, check out the list below and sign up for my e-mail list (no spam, about one email per week). I will also publish these opportunities as blog posts and link to them here.

Ways to help Ukraine

Most links include specific suggestions and/or instructions. Once you have looked through these ideas and identified a few that appeal to you, make a concrete plan to follow through. I’m available as a commitment device.

  1. Call your representatives and ask them to do more to help Ukraine, militarily or otherwise.
  2. Donate to the Ukrainian army. Or distribute posters to help raise funds for the army.
  3. Donate to the Kyiv School of Economics. Here’s an article about some of the great humanitarian work they have been doing.
  4. Attend a rally or event supporting Ukraine. Here are some other ideas for how to act locally.
  5. Stay informed about what’s going on. Then educate others.
  6. Show public support for Ukraine wherever you can.
  7. Write an op-ed.
  8. Incorporate the Ukraine war into your teaching.
  9. House a refugee or help unemployed Ukrainians looking for jobs.
  10. Help Nova Ukraine (an important charity working tirelessly to help).

Past activities

Together with my cousin & her husband in Sumy, Ukraine, I also organized a fundraiser to provide financial help to needy people there. Here’s how the funds are being distributed.

At the beginning of this war, I reached out to academics in Russia (imploring them to take steps to stop the war, letter text here) and in Ukraine (offering them help and support, letter text here). Many others have helped with these efforts as well.
