TAMPA, Fla., April 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Lucky Ape Travel Club will present all its charitable donations budget to support the people of Ukraine. The aid totaling 100 Ethereum will be equally distributed to Savelife.in.ua and Serhiy Prytula Charity Foundation, allocating 50 ETH to each.
"In times when an entire country is suffocating while struggling for freedom, and when so many innocent lives are taken just because somebody decided they’re less worthy – it’s vital that we all join hands and do the right thing," said Kseniia Tkachenko, the LATC’s operational manager, who is from Ukraine herself. "It’s not just about our donation," she added, "it’s about urging the public to give a helping hand any way they can."
The LATC partnered with Savelife.in.ua and Serhiy Prytula Charity Foundation, two organizations that provide various kinds of support to Ukraine, including military and humanitarian aid. The resources will be used to purchase supplies and equipment for the Ukrainian army and transport foodstuffs, medicines, clothes, kids’ wear, and food for animals. No less importantly, the Savelife.in.ua fund will also reinforce the military with a "tactical advantage," by training the armed forces and curbing the flow of propaganda and disinformation. Because, as they state, the war is not happening at the forefront only – it is also "in hospitals, warehouses, landfills, media, and in the offices."
"To us, blockchain technology is all about empowering people and inspiring positive change in the world. Giving back is an essential part of our roadmap," explained Jeff Bordes, LATC’s head of marketing. "Once the public sale goes live and 21% of the collection is sold out, we’ll immediately transfer 100 ETH to our partners in Ukraine," he noted.
LATC sincerely hopes that this situation will resolve soon and peace restored in Ukraine and around the world.
