100% of this Fund will support the people of Ukraine.
Russia's unprovoked attack on Ukraine is a cruel and illegal war, orchestrated by an authoritarian thug who cares little for the millions who will be devastated. We've watched as Ukrainians leave everything behind to evacuate to safety; and we've seen many parents put their children on buses and trains while they stay behind to fight to keep their home from falling to authoritarianism. The imagery is heartbreaking, and many have asked us what we can do to help.
I will be doing everything I can to ensure the United States is a strong ally and friend to Ukraine, and pray we will be successful. But even if victorious, Ukrainians will have lost so much -- particularly the children.
That's why Country First has established a dedicated fund for the benefit of these refugees -- and 100% will go toward helping Ukrainians in this time of great need. We're supporting groups -- like United Help Ukraine and Nova Ukraine -- which are doing critical work in this area.
I know this is not the kind of fundraising appeal you're used to receiving from political leaders, but I hope you will see the value in helping our friends in need. 100% of donations to our Stand with Ukraine Fund will go to this effort. Thank you for your consideration.
