“Buy a flower, and I will buy the armor for a soldier”. Little Varvara from Kropyvnytskyi drew a poster with this text. The girl was saving money for a new phone, but after the war broke out the girl’s dream has changed to helping the military. She was selling flowers for 5 hours, and together with the money she saved before, she managed to buy a bulletproof vest for the soldier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
A 6-year-old boy from the Sumy region decided to give his drone to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. He received the drone as a birthday gift, but after hearing about the Ukrainian military needing unmanned aerial vehicles decided to give the present.
11-year-old Maksym was forced to flee the city of Pokrovsk and now lives in Chernivtsi. “I want to help my family and my country, and I’m looking for a job,” — these words he wrote in an announcement and put on the buildings in his neighborhood. His services have become viral around the city and on social networks. By walking the dogs, delivering water, and taking out the garbage Maksym earned money and saved for buying a thermal imager for the military.
