Ukraine: how you can help

By planetm | March 2, 2022

Join Planet Mindful in giving your support to Ukraine

Events have escalated quickly in Ukraine and its people are showing extraordinary inspiring and courageous resistance. The Planet Mindful team is pledging its humanitarian support for the people affected by this conflict.

Our TV screens bear witness to the appalling suffering being inflicted on ordinary citizens, and we might feel powerless to help. But what we can do is use our fortunate position to help those that really need us right now. 

The best way that we can help is to donate money to the incredible charities helping those directly affected.

Our parent company, Anthem, has got our appeal off to a start by donating £10,000 to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal. Plus it has pledged to make an ongoing donation of 5% of its monthly profits to the appeal throughout all of 2022.

Now we’re calling on our Planet Mindful audience to join us in supporting the appeal. 

The charity has been chosen as one that directly supports the people displaced by the fighting as well as helping people who have crossed the border into other countries, currently estimated to be a million but potentially rising as high as four million. 

What can you do?

We know how creative our readers are, so why not raise some funds by organising a bake sale, a pub quiz, a sponsored walk or bike ride, or join foodies across the UK who are hosting dinner parties, work lunches and cookalongs to cook up a Ukrainian feast and raise money at the same. Everyone brings a dish, everyone makes a donation.

Donate to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal right now.

We know times are becoming tougher financially for many at the moment, but we urge you to give what you can to support Ukraine and its people.
