Ukrainian Deep Freeze | Sleeping Bag and Generator Drive

Event Information

"The Russians destroyed 30% of Ukraine’s power stations in just over a week." 

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky 18 OCT 2022

Temperatures are dropping as winter sets in. Russia has destroyed 30% of Ukrainian power stations in just over a week. Combined with Russian seized and occupied areas containing vast amounts of Ukraine's energy sources (solar, wind, coal, and nuclear), the Ukrainian people are facing a brutal winter.


HU22 is holding a virtual sleeping bag and generator drive for those who lost their home due to the war. The sleeping bags are portable and keep people warm as our shelters strive to optimize electric and gas heating during blackouts and outages. We are also sourcing generators for trusted partners in the worst-affected areas, as there are none in left in Ukraine.  

$25,000 is needed before freezing temperatures arrive. You donate and we will buy and deliver!


Buy a ticket to help!

  • $18 purchases one sub-zero sleeping bag made in Ukraine
  • $50 delivers a single solar power bank from the US as EU and Ukraine are low
  • $100 provides a multi-device solar panel power bank
  • $200 brings a case of sleeping bags to a community
  • $500 buys a small generator for a family from EU since Ukraine is out
  • $1000 supplies a generator for a shelter

Proceeds raised will go directly to provide needed warmth for Ukrainians this winter.  Help Ukraine 22's delivery network will distribute these to the most vulnerable across the country. Tickets are a symbolic representation of your donation. 


Don't forget your matching funds, Help Ukraine 22 is eligible through Benevity and DonorBox.
