24,000 friends of Ukraine: UNITED 24 Fundraising Platform launches a project, marking the Independence Day of Ukraine
The fundraising platform UNITED24, founded by the President of Ukraine, announces the launch of the 24,000 Friends of Ukraine Project, dedicated to the Independence Day of Ukraine. It calls for donors worldwide to subscribe for a symbolic $24 monthly donation, which can be done in one click on the platform’s website: donorbox.org/24-000-friends-of-ukraine .
The project’s launch was announced by UNITED24’s ambassadors: American actor and six-time Golden Globe nominee, Liev Schreiber, and world football star, Andriy Shevchenko.
Everyone who signs up for a monthly donation will receive a thank-you email with the signature of the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky. The idea of the project is for people worldwide to support the Ukrainian people in their fight against the aggressor on a regular basis. The initial goal of the project is 24,000 subscribers.
“The number 24 is very important for Ukraine,” said Andriy Shevchenko. “This is both the date of Independence Day, and the day when a full-scale war started, changing our lives. 24 hours a day, Ukraine fights for its freedom, and the whole world supports us in this fight. The UNITED24 platform is a reflection of such support, because people from 110 countries donate towards the needs of Ukraine using it. Today we ask them to become Friends of Ukraine. To congratulate Ukraine on the Independence Day and sign up for a regular charitable donation via UNITED24, for a symbolic amount of $24 per month.”
Charitable subscriptions are available in the direction of Medical Aid. Regular donations will allow the Ministry of Health of Ukraine to plan purchases to support the work of Ukrainian doctors and save more lives. In more than three months, 35 ventilators, 22 X-ray C-arm machines, 83 anesthesia machines, 9 operating tables, 5 children’s ALV devices and 57 C-type ambulances have already been acquired.
