We have had some enquiries on how schools can help. Rags2Riches4schools are already sending clothes to Ukraine and have been doing so for some time. This will continue for the foreseeable future with your help by collecting good quality reusable clothes at the schools.
If you would like us to donate the money for the clothes we collect to a charity of your choice instead of to the school as normal we will be happy to do this. Or alternatively we can make the payment to the school as normal, so you can make a payment on your own behalf. There are some details below where you might want to choose where the money could go best.
This is a very helpful article that we found on the iNews website, so good we had to share the content.

As the war in Ukraine escalates, destruction is worsening and casualities are rising, and efforts are under way around the world to help the country’s population.
There are many ways to show solidarity with Ukraine, from joining protests, curbing the spread of misinformation or simply sending money to large organisations. The quickest and easiest methods to offer support are via online donations.
International organisations including Unicef, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), the International Committee of the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, and the International Rescue Committee currently have personnel in Ukraine and neighbouring countries, to support those suffering in the country and the rising number of displaced people who are fleeing it.
Unicef, the United Nations humanitarian aid organisation focused on children’s welfare, is accepting donations to ensure every displaced child receives the health, nutrition and water they deserve to sustain them.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has launched an emergency appeal to send more resources, staff and aid to Ukraine’s neighbours, who are taking in hundreds of thousands of refugees.
#HelpUkraine Emergency Appeal
Set up earlier this month by the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB), the appeal is raising funds to provide accredited and registered Ukrainian charities with medicine, food and vital services. Donations can also pay for blankets, hygiene packs and trauma counselling.
British Red Cross
The British Red Cross, the Ukrainian Red Cross Society (URCS) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) have pledged to respond to existing and emerging humanitarian needs. Your donation can will help someone affected get food, water, medicine, first aid, warm clothes and shelter.
Voices of Children
Voices of Children helps children affected by the war in eastern Ukraine by providing psychological and psychosocial support. Instructions on how to donate to its programmes, such as art therapy, mobile psychologists, and individual help for families, are available on its website here.
Save the Children
Save the Children has launched an emergency fund where donations will go towards essential humanitarian aid, psychological support for children, winter and hygiene kits, educational access and cash grants to families.
Razom is a non-profit Ukrainian-American human rights organisation. Donations to its appeal will support the delivery of essential goods, the translation of important documents and sources, the sharing of vital information, and the placement of volunteers on the ground.
Sunflower of Peace
Sunflower of Peace prepares first aid medical backpacks for paramedics and doctors, with each backpack saving “up to 10 lives”. You can donate to Sunflower of Peace via its Facebook page here.
Revived Soliders of Ukraine
Revived Soldiers of Ukraine delivers humanitarian and medical aid to soldiers and their families, and those affected by military conflict.
