Every Friday The Foundry Home Goods contributes 5% of our total sales to a different community-nominated small-and-mighty cause. This Friday's Foundry Giving Friday recipient? Safebow.
Safebow is a grassroots organization aiding evacuation from Ukraine following the Russian invasion, with a priority on those in the most at-risk war zones and members of marginalized groups. Founded by model (and glorious, wild, generous human) Rain Dove, in the days following the invasion—in their own words:
"We initially started by providing mental health support and a safe space for Ukrainians and Russians alike. However, it quickly turned into us actively helping people cross the Ukrainian border with a special focus on LGBTQ+, disabled and BIPOC individuals. Safebow is different from other (amazing!) organizations in the sense that we offer one-on-one guidance for refugees fleeing the war and those who reach out to us in need of information. There is an exponentially increasing need for case managers and researchers within SafeBow as Ukraine surpasses the 3 million mark of displaced individuals."
If you don't need anything from us, please consider investing directly in Safebow here. If you do find yourself in need of fresh beeswax or a new sheepskin know that your purchase goes to support good change happening on the community level.
Thanks to Lillian for the nomination.
