Update: Olivia Macaron Raised $1,235 From Support Ukraine Gift Box

We created the Support Ukraine Gift Box at the beginning of March to raise funds to help feed refugees fleeing Ukraine. Olivia Macaron Team would like to thank everyone for your support. With your kindness and generosity, we were able to raise $1,235 in the last month!
All proceeds from the sale of Support Ukraine Gift Box had been donated to World Central Kitchen on April 5, 2022. 
 
We are grateful to serve customers like you who made contributions to help others in time of difficulties. Even though we cannot be there in person, we know our donation will go a long way to help feed meals to thousands of refugees ♥ #ChefsForUkraine now nears 300,000 daily meals is still expanding relief efforts in Ukraine.
Chef José Andrés, founder of World Central Kitchen, wrote in his response to donors:

"Thanks to supporters like you, World Central Kitchen has served tens of millions of nourishing meals to people affected by disasters and crises across the world—from hurricanes to wildfires to violent conflict zones, to a global pandemic, our fight to feed the hungry has taken us more places than we ever could have imagined. 

On February 24, Russia launched a large-scale attack on neighboring Ukraine, invading the country on several fronts. As a result, hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian families are fleeing their homes in search of safety. Working at a 24-hour pedestrian border crossing in southern Poland, WCK began serving hot, nourishing meals immediately. Now, we've expanded our efforts to serve accommodation centers in Poland as well as in Romania, Moldova, and other locations supporting refugees. WCK is also partnering with restaurants inside of Ukraine to get hot meals to anyone in need.

Your support will help us continue to use the power of food to heal communities and strengthen economies while serving as a beacon of hope for people in times of crisis. We look forward to continuing to work with you to nourish, uplift, and inspire.

Join me in fulfilling the inspiring words of John Steinbeck: 'Wherever there’s a fight so hungry people can eat, we will be there.'

We must be there."
