36 hours later on the dot, the 3 girls are checking into a hotel in Iași, Romania ... Hotel even offered them a discount Im told.

All donations and my matching donation spent. My mom also matched donation. Im about to be supporting all 3 women so it will get put to use.

Thanks all for donations, i need sleep.

Tomorrow or wed I will fly to romania and drive them back.

More Info

My girlfriend is safe again, for now, at her apartment. I tried to navigate her out of Ukraine. After 5 or 6 hours we lost contact and radio silence for just as many hours because she ended up turning around and going back. 

She had to find her way, she had to find fuel, she was exhausted, she was shot at on the road multiple times, she saw murder and death. Despite all of this she refused to stop trying to find a way to get to her friend so she could take her with.

I saw that this girl had more strength, courage, and conviction than all the western leaders who will do nothing meaningful to help Ukrainians with their fight (especially ours). 

Ukrainians need more, they need us!

Update #5

The girls started driving about 12 hours ago. Her new friends were a bit late and the doors were frozen shut so they started a bit late. This brings up a few concerns, winter weather and roads, her new car has summer tires, harder to see damage on roads, if they need to sleep in the car it will be very cold ... Im glad she has company though.

They have about 1.5 tanks worth of extra gas in the back. This should be enough to get them to the destination of Lviv if driving nice and they cant find fuel.

Many hours left

-update- they did not find a gas station yet but made it about half way, they will have to use some of their fuel reserves.

The girls had to take a lot of detours and are near the half way mark. Curfew is closing in. They may change to go towards the Romanian border since they cant find gas. Phone connection is bad. Its making it very hard for me to give them directions, but they are making progress

Update #4

Very proud of my girl, shes been in pain and sick but still decided to help more. She set up some free psychology help on her instagram and we paid to have it promoted. She gains 200 likes quickly, one girl made this picture for her. Another comment said it was a life saver because they had 22 children and no idea what to tell them, or how to tell them, but after reading her blog post it was a life saver.

Tomorrow will be scary ... Her town is relatively safe but it cant stay that way so she decided to try to leave again. Her brothers family was supposed to go but cant now. She was going to travel alone until she found two girls at the bomb shelter who had no way to escape and want to join her.

For 100 dollars she was able to find some help with gas cans (fumes are a problem) but the big concern is if she will find gas to complete the journey. Also 6pm to 6am is curfew so she has 12 hours to make the journey that is expected to take 13. They will likely have to stop and sleep in the car somewhere.

Her friend made it to Lviv. Her new fiancee flew from america to poland and drove into Ukraine to get her. They will probably leave for the border soon or possibly wait to see if my girlfriend arrives.

Things are very fluid right now ... But if all goes well ill fly to poland and help her drive to germany. Prayers welcome

Update #3

Been a rough few days sorry for lack of updates.
She is still ok. More bombs started landing in Dnipro. Russia has given the order to kill civilians too. Situation is very bad ... Ill spare the details but even I find it hard to imagine, unfortunately I see it.

I transfered another 1500 to her account. Today she was supposed to buy hot meals for the hospital and soldiers. She did not get a chance today. A girl broke her wrist and couldnt get help, they remembered she had this also and fortunately my girlfriends cast was perfect for her. After that they were busy putting out a fire. Hopefully tomorrow she has the opportunity to help again.

Today the first donation from this fun cleared my bank, soon the rest will follow. I love everyone for the help even the people who sent money outside of this. I am getting more inspired now that everyone is sharing these atrocious actions on facebook and other platforms. Direct message me for my twitter account if you want more to see/share. We cant let the world ignore this. Ukrainians are defending Europe. Nothing should be normal.

Thank you everyone
