There is no escaping the news over the past two weeks. War has come, once again to Europe and there are millions of Ukrainians who are being displaced and suffering. In the midst of being devastated at witnessing the worst of what humans can do, it is hard not to be awestruck by the good. The most moving being the love and hospitality shown to Ukrainian refugees throughout Europe.
As a truly global community, Wayfarer's League Ltd. felt that, even though many of us will not be able to help Ukrainians physically, we can pool our resources and talents to raise money for organisations who have boots on the ground. That is why, we have set aside this week, to do what we can to raise money for https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/ukraine-crisis-relief-fund/, a Global Non-Profit that aims to provide: Shelter, food, and clean water for refugees; health and psychosocial support; access to education and economic assistance - And more.
Starting today (Monday the 7th) to Wednesday the 9th of March from 10:00-13:00

Players are TBD, except Feargus; Feargus will be playing.
