Politics aside, the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine is heartbreaking and the damage to the people, buildings, and infrastructure overwhelming. Like many, it’s hard to go about your everyday hum-drum life without feeling exceedingly grateful for that normality – and it’s impossible to comprehend having that turned upside down. Creating this pattern is a way to try and assist, in a very small way, in making things better. All proceeds from the sale of this pattern will go directly to humanitarian organizations doing that good work in Ukraine.
