Help ACFE raise funds for those in need in the Ukraine!
As we watch with horror the unjust invasion of Ukraine, we wanted to take a moment and reach out to you. The crisis in Ukraine is sadly all too familiar, and, at A Cause For Entertainment, hits very close to home. Founder and President Jessica Sherman’s family is Ukrainian, and seeing her family’s motherland under vicious attack is heartbreaking. We all know the strength and resilience of the Ukrainian people, and Jessica and her family are but one shining example.
While A Cause for Entertainment is primarily focused on Breast Cancer, we ultimately are a community-run organization focused on helping people in need. It is not lost on us that Jessica’s inspiration for founding ACFE, her grandmother, was a strong Ukrainian woman who lost her battle with breast cancer.
Today, we are asking for your help. We are matching donations up to $5,000 that will go towards The Jewish Federations of North America & International Rescue Committee. More information about both organizations is available below.
The Jewish Federation has boots on the ground helping people in need in Ukraine. This is the same organization that allowed Jessica’s family to successfully flee the former Soviet Union. The Jewish Federation has established roots in Ukraine, first starting as a community organization to help the Jewish community in Ukraine that was nearly wiped out after the Holocaust. They have continued their noble work to this day, and are committed to saving Ukrainian lives.
From jewishfederations.org: “Thousands are trapped in conflict zones in the east. Thousands more have fled the fighting. Federations are planning to allocate millions of dollars to our partner agencies on the ground. But the urgent needs continue.”
The International Rescue Committee is currently on the ground in Poland and preparing to support displaced families.
Your donation today will save lives from unjust and heartbreaking circumstances. We thank you for your contribution.
Our hearts and prayers are with the people of Ukraine.
The ACFE Board of Directors
