International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the achievements of women across the world.

Can I be honest with you? It’s hard to celebrate when you see the tragedy and suffering in Ukraine.

To the women in the Ukraine who are fighting, on the front lines or to keep their families alive and safe, my heart goes out to you. You are courageous, strong, and brave.

To the women in Russia who are speaking out against this injustice, thank you for your bravery.

If you can, I encourage you to donate to organizations like World Central Kitchen. They are providing warm meals in Ukraine and for refugees crossing into Poland…I hope these meals provide some comfort, which is why I’ve made a monthly commitment myself. 

Inspired by the national flower of Ukraine, please see below for a link to an 8’x’8 art print of sunflowers. Feel free to post on social media to show your support for Ukraine. It is also a high res jpg, suitable for printing/displaying at home.
