RUNNERS UNITED COLLECTION
Our first donations went to
It is great to see how much donations are currently being collected for the Ukraine. There are countless NGOs, non-profit organizations, activist groups and governmental organizations offering their help. However, it is important to take a closer look. Some organizations support sketchy paramilitary groups or mercenaries. Others use the donations to further militarize Ukrainian troops. It is not the time to analyze and discuss the political dimensions of such measures. That’s why we decided to send all donations to unbureaucratic NGOs and activist groups who directly help the most vulnerable group of people and that’s currently Ukrainian refugees. That’s where help is needed most at the moment.
War is Horror
As history taught us many times, war is horror and it will get us nowhere. The root is either greed or nationalism, or both.
Running is our sphere. That’s why we specifically address runners around the world to speak out loudly against war and nationalism. Let’s unite to spread awareness, help the oppressed and displaced and bring the warmongers to justice.
WE ARE RUNNERS UNITED AGAINST WAR AND NATIONALISM
We are donating 25% of all "United Runners United" Shirt Sales. 25% of total sales, not just of profits.
We don't know the exact production costs yet (this depends for example on the number of shirts we produce) but we will - as in previous campaigns - round up the donation with an extra from our own pockets.
Because we want to be absolutely transparent. 25% is roughly the margin we have on our shirts.
Yes, you can. We added an additional donation button at the checkout. When you finish your order, you can add any amount you wish. All donations collected here will be added to the total amount we send to the NGOs an activist gropus.
Yes. Please get in touch with us, so we can sort that out. Currently DHL and most other delivery services do not send packages to Ukraine and Russia, but we will find a way to spread those "Runners United" Shirts.
