How Can WE Support Displaced Ukrainians?


Between the worries and uncertainty of the war in Ukraine, we’ve been trying to think of what it must be like.  Naturally Mandy thinks about the mothers fleeing with their children and I think of all the men who were left behind.

Between our worries and utter disbelief, I’ve been trying to think about how we - the etee family - can help.

Last week I got an email from my friend Jason asking for support.  He served in the middle east, has a background in logistics and is collecting items to fill a plane so he can distribute them to:

“some of the hundreds of thousands of displaced Ukrainians currently lacking access to basic necessities, as well as victims of the conflict. I need your help.”

In a call with the RED CROSS we got some clarity on what to put in the requested HYGIENE kits.  The answer?

  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Toothbrushes and paste
  • Feminine hygiene products

Awesome - we now stock ALL of those items - including the feminine hygiene products.

What’s even more interesting is that the RED CROSS said LIQUID PRODUCTS LIKE SHAMPOO are difficult to transport and distribute because they’re heavy and prone to leaking.


The last 2 years demonstrated that the quickest and easiest response to a crisis often results in more plastic pollution and environmental waste.  But it doesn’t have to be that way.

In this situation, it appears our shampoo bars and chewpaste are actually EASIER TO DISTRIBUTE because they are lighter and more durable than plastic packaged liquids.  


We were thinking that for the next week we would donate a hygiene kit for each order placed.  Have a look at the chart below for details.

Would you support this project?  How can we make it bigger and more impactful?  LET US KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW

  • I couldn’t find the feminine hygiene products on the etee website to compare, but please consider reaching out to Days for Girls ( to collaborate and/or support their efforts. They’re a nonprofit organization that sews reusable menstrual kits and distributes them worldwide. They are monitoring the situation and looking to support those affected by the crisis. I volunteer for another nonprofit that partners with Days for Girls. If you email me, I can put you in touch with our Days for Girls contact.

  • I agree that I would stock up on some supplies to help contribute, but would also love to see options to straight up buy/donate for more kits to get added to help make more of a contribution.
