International Rescue Committee
As we continue to witness the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, ART FOR CHANGE will donate a portion of proceeds from this month’s releases to the International Rescue Committee, which is providing emergency kits, shelter and medical care to refugees, especially women and children, fleeing armed conflict in Ukraine and throughout the world.
ART FOR CHANGE rejects the atrocities of war and believes all people are entitled to peace, safety and wellbeing so they may have the freedom to pursue hopeful, healthy futures for themselves and their communities. It is integral to our mission as a socially-conscious business to help create a more equitable, peaceful world and we are proud to stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and all others who suffer from displacement and violence.
The mission of the IRC is to help people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster, including the climate crisis, to survive, recover, and gain control over their future. The IRC puts in place high-impact, cost-effective solutions that help people affected by crisis. They use their learning and experience to shape humanitarian policy and practice in ways that improve the lives of more people worldwide. In all of their work, they focus on breaking down each of the barriers faced by women and girls.
