Retro Renaissance x Razom for Ukraine - Fashion for a Cause
Unveiling Our Artistic Collaboration for Ukraine
Greetings, Renaissance Rebels!
We're thrilled to announce our latest charitable collaboration at Retro Renaissance, this time with Razom for Ukraine (Razom). Razom, meaning “together” in Ukrainian, is a US-based nonprofit that's been a beacon of hope and support for Ukraine, especially in times of crisis.
Razom for Ukraine: Uniting for Change
Razom for Ukraine was founded in 2014 as a response to Ukraine's Revolution of Dignity. Since then, it has grown remarkably, now encompassing over 200,000 donors and volunteers and partnering with more than 140 organizations. In the wake of the Russian invasion in 2022, Razom's rapid mobilization and extensive advocacy have been pivotal in providing life-saving aid and support to the Ukrainian people.
Our Exclusive T-Shirt Collection
In solidarity with Razom's mission, we've designed a unique range of t-shirts that embody the spirit of Ukraine. Each design is a tribute:
Nightingale's Song: A Dada, surrealist style drawing of a nightingale, symbolizing hope and resilience.
Ukrainian Voyage: A travel poster-inspired design, capturing the beauty and spirit of Ukraine.
Art Deco Inspiration: An Art Deco, Ukrainian-influenced design that celebrates the nation's rich cultural heritage.
Pysanky Artistry: A vibrant depiction of a traditional pysanky egg, representing life and new beginnings.
Fashion with Purpose
For the first month, every penny of profit from these tees will go directly to Razom. By choosing one of these tees, you're not just making a fashion statement, you're contributing to a cause that's rebuilding a nation and spreading democracy.
Razom's Impact: Some of the Numbers from 2023
Razom Health has sent 7,630 tons of donated items, valued at over $23 million, to Ukraine. They have made deliveries to 149 hospitals benefiting more than 15,000 patients. Additionally, 300 hospitals have received heaters and hospital-grade generators
In response to the Kakhovka Dam disaster, Razom raised more than $500,000 for immediate and long-term aid. They also distributed 99 additional generators in 2023, which were delivered to 62 resilience points, 19 bomb shelters, and other locations to provide power to local populations
In the first six months of 2023, Razom distributed $1.45 million in grants to 45 Ukrainian NGOs.
- They delivered 18,000 food and hygiene packages to more than 50 cities and villages.
We chose Razom because their work is more than just aid; it's about empowering a nation, healing communities, and advocating for democracy. Organizations like Razom play a critical role globally, not just in crisis response but in nurturing the seeds of freedom and resilience.
Razom's 10th Year Anniversary
Another remarkable feet for Razom for Ukraine, they see their 10 year anniversary this year. An incredible feet and testament to how hard working the team at Razom are. An obvious reflection of the level of toil and hard work that has gone into every moment of taking Razom for Ukraine to this point.
We for one are unbelievably thankful for what these brave men and women are doing, helping spread democracy across a war stricken nation in desperate need of help rebuilding. Without stark defenders of freedom and the Western dream like Razom for Ukraine are, the world could be a rather scary, different place.
