Recently I met a wonderful Ukrainian family. They have been in New Orleans for a few years, but have already touched many people with their story, and have had the good fortune to help several family members seek asylum in the United States. It’s far from an ideal situation, hard to make ends meet while waiting for their work visas, and they live together in cramped quarters.
Sometimes retail therapy can act as a simple action to take to maintain an illusion of control. No, adding stuff to the cart won’t reduce battles, but if it’s a step up, it’s money well spent! Check out the products I’ve found to help Ukrainian relief efforts or focus on the cause you care about and shop around!
