  1. I do agree with all the concepts you’ve offered to your post. They’re very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

  2. Hi! I am in Ukraine, we have a terrible war going on and I am asking for your help with tears in my eyes.
    I have had more grief. I am a mother of two children and our house was destroyed by Russian missiles, everything we had gained was burned. We lost our homes, we have nowhere to live. We are hiding in basements from bombing and praying to stay alive, we eat what we can. We have only what we are wearing.
    I am asking for help. I would never ask, but I am in a desperate situation. My children are freezing, there is nothing to eat and nowhere to live.
    If there is any way – I would be grateful for any financial support.

  3. Good afternoon. I am writing to you through Google translator, because I do not know English. In Ukraine children are passing away. They are dying because of this traumatic war, in which they are not to blame at all. The easiest way to help children is to make a transfer to a wallet

    No one cares now about Valera, who is 1.5 years old, he is very ill, now he lies all alone in the basement of children’s oncology in the city of Kharkov, his mom was killed by a bomb. Of the relatives, there is only a daddy who is now at war and an old grandfather of 80 years old. This poor baby needs expensive medicines, he needs a nurse who will take care of him. My name is Marina and I am a volunteer at the children’s hospital in Kharkov, Ukraine. All the kids are in the basement, the hospital is in terrible condition, supplies of vital medicines are running out, children with serious illnesses are simply passing away. It is possible to purchase these medicines and the necessary medical equipment, a huge part of which was destroyed during the hostilities. But all this requires huge money, which neither the hospital nor the government currently has, we are completely broken down. I ask you to help the children who suffer in this war, it is already hard for them with such diagnoses as cancer, diabetes and other deadly diseases, and then there is this sadistic war that takes away their parents and their last hope for recovery.

    We need hundreds of thousands of dollars, but even small donations will help us a lot. I beg you, do not pass by the pain of innocent children. I don’t know who to ask for help, my country has no money, we have no money, people are left without income. Help us save lives of the kids
