Goal

Fundraising for Ukrainian doll and teddy bear artists, supported by TEDDYBÄR TOTAL and TEDDYS kreativ (Germany), Hugglets (United Kingdom), FANTANIMA!, Team Koyaala, MISOROGI (Japan) and Japan Teddy Bear Association (JTBA).


We always see the international community of doll and bear makers as a family. That's why we often call our fairs family reunions. We have to see that a part of our family is under attack. Rockets and artillery barrages are going down on the civil society of Ukraine. Families spend their nights in basements, air-raid shelters or metro stations while their cities get destroyed. Many are escaping their country, leaving all their belongings and known lives behind. We are in direct contact with many of them. It is a terrible nightmare in our neighbourhood.

 

Over the years, I made many friends in the Ukrainian doll and teddy bear world. These friends are in desperate need of our help. Every £, €, ¥ or $ is helpful. I guarantee that every penny and cent goes to bear artists suffering from this situation and their families from all parts of Ukraine. We want to help them to provide for food, clothes, accommodation or travel expenses. Or to rebuild their life. 

 

I will provide you with regular updates on where the money is going. I beg for your support to help our friends and colleagues.

Wir betrachten die internationale Gemeinschaft der Puppen- sowie Teddykünstlerinnen und -künstler immer als Familie. Deshalb nennen wir unsere Messen auch oft "Familientreffen". Wir sehen, dass ein Teil unserer Familie angegriffen wird. Raketen und Artilleriebeschuss gehen auf die Zivilbevölkerung der Ukraine nieder. Familien verbringen ihre Nächte in Kellern, Bunkern oder U-Bahn-Stationen während ihre Städt zerbombt werden. Viele befinden sich auf der Flucht. Sie lassen all ihr Hab und Gut, ihr bekanntes Leben zurück. Ich stehe mit vielen von ihnen in direktem Kontakt. Es ist ein unfassbarer Alptraum in unserer Nachbarschaft.

 

In den vergangenen Jahren habe ich viele Freundschaften in der Ukrainischen Puppen- und Teddy-Welt geschlossen. Diese Freunde sind verzweifelt auf Hilfe angewiesen. Jeder €, £, ¥ or $ hilft. Ich garantiere dafür, dass jeder Cent und jeder Penny an Puppen- und Teddykünstlerinnen aus allen Teilen der Ukraine geht, die unter dieser Situation leiten und dringend Hilfe brauchen. Wir wollen sie dabei unterstützen, Essen, Kleidung, Unterbringung oder Reisekosten zu bezahlen. Oder dabei, ihr Leben neu aufzubauen. 

 

Ich bitte um Hilfe für unsere Freunde und Kollegen und werde regelmäßig berichten, wie das Geld verwendet wird.

私たちはいつも、世界中のテディベア作家はひとつの家族のようなものだと思っています。だから私たちは自分たちのフェアを、家族の再会と呼んでいます。ロケットや爆弾の砲撃がウクライナの市民社会を襲っています。人々は町が破壊 される夜のあいだ、地下室や防空壕や地下鉄の駅で過ごしています。多くの人が 、すべての所有物や慣れ親しんだ生活を残したまま国から退避しています。私たちはそういう多くの人たちと連絡をとっています。恐ろしい悪夢が私たちのそばで起きています。


ウクライナには、何年もかけてできたたくさんのテディベア作家の友人がいます。その友人たちが今、できるだけの支援を必要としています。どんな少額でもウクライナ中で困難な状況を強いられている作家や家族に届けることを約束します。寄付金で食料、衣服、旅行費用、または生活を立て直すための費用を支援したいと思っています。


寄付金の使途については定期的に公表いたします。私たちの友人や仲間たちを支えるために、皆さまの支援をよろしくお願いいたします。

Я всегда рассматриваю международное сообщество художников-теддистов тедди как семью. Вот почему мы часто называем наши выставки семейными встречами. Мы видим, что часть нашей семьи подвергается нападению. Ракетные и артиллерийские обстрелы обрушиваются на гражданское население Украины. Семьи проводят ночи в подвалах, бомбоубежищах или на станциях метро. Многие бегут из страны, оставляя все свое имущество и знакомые жизни позади. Я нахожусь в непосредственном контакте со многими из них. Это ужасный кошмар, который происходит рядом с нами.


За эти годы у меня появилось много друзей в украинском мире плюшевых мишек. Эти друзья отчаянно нуждаются в помощи. Каждый фунт, евро, ¥ или $ будет полезен. Я гарантирую, что каждый пенни и каждый цент пойдут на помощь нуждающимся артистам и их семьям со всех уголков Украины. 


Я буду регулярно информировать вас о том, куда идут деньги. Я прошу вашей поддержки, чтобы помочь нашим друзьям и коллегам.
