At Loaded Pierogi, we care about the world around us. As a focal point of communities throughout Canada, we’re ideally positioned to rally assistance for our Ukrainian brothers and sisters. And with our heritage embedded in Ukraine and neighbouring Poland, we simply cannot sit back and watch the atrocities unfold without doing something about it. But we need your help.
Our goal is to raise at least $20,000 to support humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. We are also seeking to raise awareness of the plight of refugees escaping the conflict and invite you to contribute to a charity working on the ground to help families cross the border into neighbouring safe-havens.
As this senseless invasion plays out and takes its toll on innocent civilians, we’re reminded of the age-old mantra:
Someone can’t do everything, but everyone can do something.
Here’s what you can do to help our efforts to stand with the people of Ukraine:
- Visit any Loaded location and donate $1, $2, or $5 and receive a pierogi badge for the wall. We aim to raise more than $5,000 every week for the next four weeks. You might as well #getloaded with one of our LOADED Bowls to satisfy that Pierogi craving when you drop by to show your support for Ukraine.
- We are committed to helping facilitate and support Ukrainian mothers, children and refugees to escape Ukraine into Romania and other parts of Europe. We have partnered with the awesome Pilgrim Movement, and you can direct your donations to support their cause here.
- $1 from every bowl of the NEW Loaded Double Sausage and Cheddar will be donated directly to support Ukrainian refugees via the Pilgrim Movement.
About the Pilgrim Movement
The Pilgrim Movement is a Montreal-based charity run by Sebastian Tirtirau. Sebastian is currently on the front line on the Ukraine-Romanian border, assisting refugees escaping the conflict. We invite you to support the charity’s efforts on the ground, and you can find out more about their work in Ukraine here.
Let’s show the people of Ukraine that they’re not alone
We started Loaded out of love for delicious food and to bring people together. At a time when the people of Ukraine fear for the future, we want to show them that they’re not alone and that the Loaded family stands behind them. Find out more about how to load up support for the Ukraine nation, and let’s all do our bit together.
