What is happening in Ukraine is heart-wrenching and we are all feeling a bit helpless as to what we can do in this urgent situation. We are looking for ways to help our fellow humans in their fight to protect their homes.  

Those who remain in Ukraine as well as those who are seeking refuge need our help.

Have you been asking yourselves what you can do to help the people of Ukraine? Here at Picsello we have been asking ourselves the same question. Ukrainian citizens who we work with are in our heart right now, along with all Ukranians who are suffering through this.
