According to IOM (International Organization for Migration), over 6 million refugees have fled Ukraine since Russia invaded Ukraine in early February 2022. Nearly 8 million have been displaced inside Ukraine. This is the largest refugee crisis in Europe since World War II. Most refugees have entered neighboring countries to the west of Ukraine, with Poland receiving more refugees than all other European countries combined.
Good360 is maintaining constant product distribution and communication through vetted nonprofit partners on the ground in the region to determine how to best support their work. As needs on the ground evolve, Good360 will share that information and serve as a humanitarian supply chain. Truckloads of critically needed products are being donated, distributed, sorted, and shipped all along the east coast. The UPS Foundation, USA for UNHCR and others have sponsored airlifts for critical items, while most products are arriving via cargo ship in 30-40 days.
To date, Good360 has distributed over $40 million worth of products to Ukrainian refugees. Donations from Medifast, Amazon, Bombas, CARQUEST, Charter Communications, Cora, Crayola, CULTA, Delta Airlines, Edgewell Personal Care, Fanatics, Garan Manufacturing, G-III Apparel Group, Levi, Life Is Good, Lowes, MPOWERD, Newell Brands, Nice-Pak, PMC, PVH, Tempur Sealy International, ThirdLove, and others have provided non-perishable food, personal care, hygiene kits, solar-powered lights, clothing, coats, jackets, carrying cases, backpacks, water bottles, amenity kits, cleaning supplies and sanitizing wipes, and bottled drinks.
US-based and international partners are sharing unmet needs and developing programs to distribute the right goods to the right people at the right time. Courageous and passionate partners like Global Empowerment Mission (GEM), World of Giving, CIS Development Foundation, Jezreel, All Hands and Hearts, and USA for UNHCR are working miracles under the most challenging and dangerous circumstances imaginable.
Our long-term programs for refugees, including our partnership with USA for UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), underscore our commitment to supplying critically needed products for displaced people around the world.
