An easy way to support Ukrainian based artists and small shops right now is to purchase their digital products on Etsy. I’m so grateful I saw this post on @StitchAndSteelCo that shares how to easily search for these pieces.
I was a little skeptical about this idea at first but when I started reading some of the shop bios I was moved and knew I had to share. This statement got me –
“Thank you so much for your orders! I understand that most of you buy from me now in order to support small business in Ukraine! I swear I’ll never forget all your orders and kind words during this horrible time!! I can’t describe how thankful I am! Thank you for all your prayers!! Ukraine needs your support! MAKE ART NO WAR!!!”
I have all of the pieces above in my cart and even if I don’t use them right now, I’m sure I will someday! I have been using digital artwork through our home renovation and it’s so easy to have your files printed locally and then pick them up and frame them yourself – and it’s affordable!
