Love, support, safety
Pouring out of my heart

The simple design of these wool heart pins is infused with my complex emotions - the layered colors of the Ukranian flag are meant to evoke our hearts reaching out to help those in need, who are desperate for warmth and safety, comfort and peace. By creating this pin, I am hoping together we can make an important impact. We must do what we can.
I have embellished these hearts with a safety pin for this reason -
“This has come to be known as the Safety Pin Movement. The Safety Pin Movement shows that those who wear the pins will stand by those who may feel vulnerable, no matter what. The pin symbolizes standing together, and fighting for what you believe in. Many people believe that this can help to let people know that they aren’t going to stay quiet.”
100% of the proceeds from the sale of these wool heart pins will be donated to care.org in support of the Ukrainian people during this unbelievable time. In order for your purchase to make the most impact, I will personally pay the fees that CARE incurs to manage and distribute donated funds.
A donation to this appeal supports CARE’s Ukraine Crisis Fund — aiming to reach 4 million with immediate aid and recovery, food, water, hygiene kits, psychosocial support, and cash assistance — prioritizing women and girls, families, and the elderly.
