Some of you may wonder, how actually things work. Well, here is a great example.
We (at AidUkraineNow) received a call from our contact in Ukraine that a Ukrainian reconnaissance team requires military MultiCam backpacks.
We got in touch with a provider in the US and asked for eight backpacks: 7 – 27 liters and 1 – 55 liter capacity. After finding out that the backpacks are going to be shipped to Ukraine we received a much-needed 20% discount.
Then we patiently waited for a delivery, which arrived shortly 5-7 days.
Later that week, we drove the bags to the airport after work and shipped them via our friends at XXX airlines.
About 5 days later, the boys on the reconnaissance team received the much-needed backpacks in Ukraine, the photo you can see below.
This small, but critical delivery was only possible because of the tremendous help we are getting from:
You guys! You donated funds to make this $1,515 shipment possible.
Our friends at XXX airlines and folks in the Ukrainian-American community who made it possible.
Our team at AidUkraineNow.org for coordinating and organizing fundraising and getting a 20% discount!
Our friends in Ukraine, they inform us about what’s needed so there is no money wasted.
The supplier that gave us a 20% discount.
And many others that I forgot to mention.
