If you have been a Trillium reader for a while, you’ve heard me talk about my friends Yuliya and Katherine a few times. I have had the privilege of working closely with them on a variety of projects over the past 5 years and I think they’re two of the loveliest humans I’ve ever had the pleasure to know.
You may also be aware that both Yuliya and Katherine are originally from Ukraine. Yuliya came to the United States as a child and eventually moved to the Netherlands where she now resides with her husband and children. Katherine is in Ukraine right now and is directly affected by the invasion of her country. We check in daily and I’m relieved to share that she is currently safe and as well as can be expected under the circumstances. As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time on many levels.
With reports of over 1.5 million refugees having already fled Ukraine, this is a critical situation by any measure.
Yuliya reached out to the Montessori community to see if we could collaborate on a way to support the refugees. We had an immediate response from dozens of Montessori creators who banded together to create a bundle of educational resources. Creating a bundle is a lot of work but with everyone’s support, we were able to pull it together in a matter of days.
The creators have donated a wide range of digital/downloadable resources and will not be receiving any compensation for their contribution or other work. All proceeds, after required taxes and fees, will go directly towards supporting refugees from Ukraine. Yuliya will be organizing disbursement and will share updates on how the money is being used.
Please consider supporting this effort by purchasing a bundle. You’ll get 100+ educational resources for a fantastic price, and you’ll also be doing a small part to help alleviate a major humanitarian crisis.
