It was an amazing weekend at the 46th Annual St. George’s Ukrainian Festival in NYC. Razom Lounge presented recent Razom projects, hosted activities and interviews, had incredible Face Box and Ukrainian clay-making experiences, and much more!
In early December, Razom volunteers co-hosted an event with the Ukrainian Institute of America in New York City, marking the five years since the Ukrainian revolution began. The purpose of the event was to bring people together to share their own stories of how Maidan affected them in the year of 2013 and onwards. “Our question here today is ‘where were you in the winter of 2013? Who were you and how did Maidan change you?’”, said Maryna Prykhodko, one of the MC’s, as she welcomed the audience. continue reading →
What motivated young Ukrainian immigrants to engage and support the Euromaidan movement from abroad? What strategies did they employ to enable political, economic, and social change? What impact did they create in Ukraine and the United States? Dr. Alla Korzh and Dr. Serhiy Kovalchuk presented their research focused on Razom.
New York Fashion Week takes on the Big Apple each season. The sidewalks fill up with people wearing even more fantastical outfits than usual; photographers swarm the designers, stylists, models and industry insiders. The global community of fashion insiders swarm Manhattan streets and creative locations in other boroughs. This year Razom was in the mix. continue reading →

The Razom Toy Drive – one of our longest running projects – continues its noble mission of gathering and providing help to children of Ukrainian soldiers. The last few months of 2017 were “hot” in the States, collecting and packing and delivering. But the efforts pay off. When you learn that now, children of Ukrainian soldiers feel special while receiving presents for their Birthdays and on other important occasions, you know that you did everything right.
The second half of 2017 was full of connections that brought people together to build a prosperous Ukraine. Here is a list of just a few highlights. Please help to keep this working going into 2018. Donate now.
Your contribution makes a difference.

Last weekend, our Toy Drive team hosted a charity picnic in Central Park to celebrate Ukraine’s Independence. We couldn’t have asked for better weather and a better turnout! The day was action packed with fun activities, salo tasting, music, and great company. By the end of the day, we raised $2,000, which we will send to the Lviv Education Foundation in support of their program “Big Brother” (“Старший Брат”). “Big Brother” is a mentorship program for kids, whose fathers have been affected by the war in eastern Ukraine.
