Bucks County resident LisaBeth Weber has created an art fundraiser for Ukraine which, to date, has raised over $12,000 from more than 175 donors and she plans to keep it going.
One hundred percent of all funds received are going to Direct Relief (directrelief.org - top rated by Charity Navigator and The New York Times). Direct Relief has been sending emergency medical backpacks and other aid to Ukraine.
Weber, an artist, writer and musician, who makes handmade pins for causes, created a piece of art that could be emailed to donors in a digital file to help the immediate and dire need in Ukraine.
“I realize anyone can simply donate without receiving anything in return,” said Weber, “but my hope is that by offering this artwork for a donation, more funds can be raised, and in turn, more sharing of the fundraiser.”
