Support the CS Community :
Kids For Ukraine is a group of Center School students who support Ukraine by attending rallies and protests and fundraising to spread awareness and education about the ongoing war in Ukraine. All of their profits from online sales and fundraisers are donated to children’s charities for Ukraine. The best ways to help are to attend rallies and protests, spread the word about our group, buy and promote their merchandise, and most of all, discuss the ongoing war in Ukraine with your children, as it is vital that they understand and care about what is truly happening. So far, they have raised more than $150! Visit their website at https://kids4ukraine.org , follow them on Twitter and Instagram at https://twitter.com/kidsforukraine https://instagram.com/kidsforukraine , and email them at email@example.com.
