  • We are able to welcome three lovely Ukrainian women to our team, Natalia, Maria, and Julia. - we are planning to hire more people soon.
  • Making the Stand with Ukraine Rolling Pin, another way to raise our voice.
  • Provide warm accommodations and assistance in finding one.
  • Winter brings more woes for children in Eastern Ukraine - More Focus on Women and Children's Assistance.
  • We received Overwhelming Support from the Pastrymade Community.

Continue reading to know more details and see photos of Pastrymade action to help Ukraine, and how you be part of this action and help Ukrainian people.

 

What motivates us, the PastryMade Team to start this action!

"Here is a photo of Mira and his brother taken last Christmas of 2021"

 

Earlier this year, during the height of the conflict😢, two of our team members, Mira, and his brother are deeply affected by the situation😟. They are Ukrainians that worked with us for the past three years.

They have to go back to Ukraine to get their parent and Mira’s brother is enlisted to participate in their battle to defend their country.

As a team made up of Polish and Ukrainian communities, we believe that we must act to help in our own way💪.

.

1. “As a team and community, Pastrymade sales provide assistance with food, clothes, hygiene kits, medical supplies, etc.”

We are also able to provide help and assistance to Mira’s brother who is currently at the frontline and protecting Ukraine💛💙. He is grateful for all the support they receive and share the supplies with the other squads in need. 

2. “We are able to welcome three lovely Ukrainian women to our team, Natalia, Maria, and Julia.

As a family business owner, I decided to help by hiring them for our workshop. Through this, it will give them a chance to work and have a glimpse of a normal life.


Maria’s family is one of the families that Karolina’s family was able to accommodate.

Right now, they are adjusting to their life and they appreciate that they are currently working with the pins that help them during difficult times.

3. “Making the Stand with Ukraine Rolling Pin, another way to raise our voice.”

As requested by our supporters and customers, We have decided to create a (LIMITED EDITION) Sunflower Design pin with crafted handles "Stand With UKRAINE"

The sales of all rolling pins (not only "Stand with UKRAINE") on our website store were used for more food, kits and medical supplies.

In addition to donating our sales (we provide assistance with food, clothes, and medical supplies), we decide to motivate our customers to participate in this action by offering 4 free gifts automatically (Without using any discount code) when buying 2 rolling pins.

Our action depends on you, We can do more if we got orders from our business.

4. “Provide warm accommodations and assistance in finding one.

We are able to receive families from Ukraine and help them with finding accommodations.

Mira was also our hero during the time, she provide assistance to look for accommodations for over 50 people and did her best to guide them.

5. “Winter brings more woes for children in eastern Ukraine.”

In every conflict, the children are the ones who are mostly affected. We would like to share one of their stories:

Nine-year-old Masha is busy collecting fallen tree branches from a yard in a city affected by conflict in eastern Ukraine. She shakes the snow from the wood. Then, when her large plastic bag is finally full, she wipes her frozen hands.

“This is enough to burn the stove for about an hour,” she says, proudly. “It will be possible to heat water, wash or cook food.”

Pastrymade is working hard more than before to deliver life-saving support to those who need it the most (Food - Clothes for winter).

We help to repair damaged schools and kindergartens, We also provide chance to Ukrainian families to work on our workshop and have a glimpse of a normal life.

Our action depends on you, We can do more if we got orders from our business.

6. “Overwhelming Support from the Pastrymade Community.

Thank you so much to our lovely customer, Kathryn, and to all the children within her community from the UK!

We have received her package with cuddly toys and personalized cards made by the children at her church. Thank you so much for this kind act❤️. It will surely make the Ukrainian families within our community happy!

 

Our action depends on you, We can do more if we got orders from our business.

Update as of October 2022:

As we have new members of our team who are Ukrainians, we hope for their families and friends’ safety.

We all heard the news that explosions came across Ukraine again, breaking our hearts. It hits multiple cities in Ukraine including the city of Kyiv.

The tension is getting higher and what we can do is hope that it will stop for the people.

What we are also worried about is the season is changing and it will be winter soon. It would mean that people will need assistance as winter nears Ukraine.

Earlier this morning, Mira’s brother contacted her and Karolina with updates about the situation on his station with this troop.

He asks for support and more importantly wishes from his loved ones for this safety and for everyone in his troop.

He also conveys his sincere thanks to everyone that helps them with the necessary medical supplies and body armor for their troop.

Our action depends on you, We can do more if we got orders from our business.

We receive requests to create a GofundMe, though we are thankful, we decided not to create one because our goal is not to take money directly from our customers.

Pastrymade's goal is to help our Ukrainian friends to have a chance to live a normal life.

You can also help us by sharing this post with your family and friends.

THANK YOU for ordering and giving your support with our action!

I hope and wish peace for everyone. #NotoWar #Ukraine.

I am of Polish ancestry, so was intrigued with your site. Especially that you support the Ukrainian. I ordered for gifts and one for myself. Sent 2 child pins and one adult to my daughter in law to use with my great grand kids. They come so fast it surprised me. There is now a video on Instagram of my great granddaughter thanking me and showing the cookies she made with her grandmother. There was no problem with making the cookies as they followed the directions in the recipe book. I will send more to them and as gifts to others. Awesome gift for the bakers in the family. Thank you so much Pastrymade.
