My maternal grandfather was from Ukraine. He emigrated in the very early moments of the 20th Century and I have no connection with family he left behind, but I know I have family there. That being said, we do not need family in this apocalyptic war zone to recognize the horror that is being perpetrated there and wonder what we could possibly do to help.
Here is a solution that my friend Jerry S. up in Buchtel made the Kaukonen Family aware of here at the Fur Peace Ranch.
Hot Tuna will be streaming two performances from the Fur Peace Ranch this weekend. April 9th at 8 pm and April 10th and 4 pm. Proceeds from both shows will go directly to the people of Ukraine. The organization we chose for this particular event is Aerial Recovery Group.

Aerial Global Community has partnered with Aerial Recovery Group and Global Empowerment Mission to support the estimated 3-7 million people who could become refugees due to the conflict in Ukraine. The Aerial Recovery Group team is on the ground at the Poland-Ukraine border to set up refugee camps and assist those fleeing from the crisis in Ukraine.
Our donations will go to supporting Aerial’s primary mission which is transporting orphans and those in dangerous areas to the west and safeguarding them. Safe houses, food, clothing, medical needs, and more are provided. Aside from all of the other work the Aerial Recovery group is doing on the ground in Ukraine and Poland for refugees, these additional systems and procedures provide extra comfort and stability to these refugees amid this tragedy.
Aerial Global Community is a registered 501(c)(3) organization that has partnered with Aerial Recovery Group to respond to emergency needs in Ukraine.
Hopefully more will be revealed vis a vis opportunities to help!
