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? Razom.
Razom is an international non profit that is currently working directly with volunteers in Ukraine to send funds where they are needed most.
Founded in the wake of the Revolution of Dignity in 2014, Razom means "together" in Ukrainian and serves as a constant reminder of the community that it takes to create, build and do. They operate in Ukraine as Razom Dlia Ukraini (Разом Для України) and they collaborate with organizations and individuals to actively deliver the highest impact.
The recommendation for this nomination comes from a Foundry family friend, Masha, who also has put together a riveting new podcast in collaboration with Columbia University's Harriman Institute for Russian, Eurasian, and East European Studies. The podcast, Voices of Ukraine, is comprised of first-person accounts of life in wartime. Give it a listen here.
If you don't need anything from us, please consider investing directly in Razom 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.
