Last weekend, our Toy Drive team hosted a charity picnic in Central Park to celebrate Ukraine’s Independence. We couldn’t have asked for better weather and a better turnout! The day was action packed with fun activities, salo tasting, music, and great company. By the end of the day, we raised $2,000, which we will send to the Lviv Education Foundation in support of their program “Big Brother” (“Старший Брат”). “Big Brother” is a mentorship program for kids, whose fathers have been affected by the war in eastern Ukraine.

Razom held its second annual meeting on Saturday, July 25th in New York City. More than 140 guests attended #Razom2years who learned about the organization’s progress and six initiatives, including: Razom IT, Razom Culture, Razom Think with UkrOko.org, Reformers without Borders, Razom Aid with Toy Drive, and Razom Partners. “I was so impressed to see so many new faces in the room,” said Razom Board Member, Dora Chomiak. “Clearly this shows that, even though the headlines may be off the front pages, the drive that brought Razom volunteers together in 2014 is still relevant today.”
