We want to thank everyone who purchased a Peace for Ukraine Jersey.
You have made a difference.
As soon as we saw what was unfolding in Ukraine, we at Pactimo knew we had to act in a meaningful capacity. Thankfully, we own our own factory and means for production, which allowed us to quickly develop something that could have an impact. That something became the Ukrainian Peace Jerseys.
For years, it has been our privilege to provide support to organizations and teams of people who are making a difference. And, while our primary focus has always been on healthcare and disaster relief, it is the most vulnerable—the children—who have always been the center of our efforts. It was for that reason that we chose the Ukrainian Crisis fund of Save the Children, a century-old organization working to support children at risk in 100 countries including some of the world’s worst conflict zones.
Thanks to all the jersey purchases by so many caring people, we are proud to announce that donations to Save the Children from the sale of the Ukrainian Peace Jerseys are in excess of $84,000!
While we hope this conflict has a peaceful resolution soon, we will continue to find inspiration in the words of Bobby Kennedy from over fifty years ago in times of crisis. Rather than be overwhelmed into passivity, we are compelled by the idea that each of us can make a difference, whether great or small. In the sum total of our individual acts of caring, serving, giving, and sacrificing, the power to improve our world is accumulated.
“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
— Robert F. Kennedy, 1966, during apartheid at the University of Cape Town, S. Africa
