Dear friends, colleagues, vendors and clients,

We know we're all watching the tragedy of war unfolding in Ukraine and many of us are asking how we can help so that people who need it most get that help.

If you've worked with VI, you've worked with those who were born in Ukraine, lived in Ukraine, still have family and friends in Ukraine. Some of our staff - designers, developers, media - are still in Ukraine - and their lives have been completely uprooted by the war.

We are fortunate to be able to reach people on the ground through our contacts through our staff that's still there. We are sharing this fundraiser in case you would like to participate in donating with us. Your contributions will be matched by VI and will go directly to the people in Ukraine who need most.

Our staff and partners have identified the following charities:

  • Trucks going from western Ukraine with supplies to cities that need it most (coordinated by our staff member)
  • Irpin charity run by a person distributing supplies to soldiers and those in need
  • Ukrainian Women's Veteran Movement (supplies for soldiers and those in need)
  • Volunteer platform for organizing transfer of equipment and supplies from Poland (our UI/UX team volunteers here)
  • Humanitarian, medical and tactical supplies sent via Meest Karpaty (Chicago / Ukraine logistics company)

Any donation you make will directly to these grassroots organizations that can use them immediately. All organizations provide us with information on how they use the funds and we will be sure to forward this information to you as well.

Thank you -

VI team
