750 sleeping bags found their new owners at the ATO zone

12 February, 2015

At the end of November 2014 Ukrainian Freedom Fund has announced a fundraiser to purchase 10 000 sleeping bags for our men at the front lines. While winter was just around the corner, and our men had to sleep in the trenches, the need of sleeping bags to comfort them during extremely cold nights was tremendous. Many people have responded to our call and made generous donations. Thus, thanks to your kind donations we have been able to get 750 sleeping bags in total.

A special thanks goes to our dearest friend and partner – Euromaidan-Ottawa and Natalia Romas, who joined our initiative and raised 14500 CAD (equivalent of 193 285 UAH). Their contribution turned into 450 sleeping bags out of the total above number.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all who helped us raise the money. Even though we have not been able to reach our ambitious goal, but 750 sleeping bags gave warmth and comfort to many of our men.
