A few words from Poets
Poets for Ukraine and JW3* are collaborating on a fundraising, awareness-raising, spirit-raising day and evening of poetry in solidarity with the people of Ukraine at this time of great peril and suffering.
This will take the form of a day-long, hybrid Poem-a-Thon where sponsored poets each read for up to five minutes in front of both live and virtual audiences.
The Poem-a-Thon will be followed by an evening Gala Event where our special guests will showcase Eastern European and English language poetry.
PLEASE SPONSOR OUR POETS GENEROUSLY!

Our Poets are raising funds for two separate charities – poets raising funds via this fundraising page will be donating to Hope and Aid Direct.
Hope and Aid Direct are a 100% volunteer led UK based humanitarian aid charity operating mainly in mainland Europe. They are a non political, non religious charity: “We take aid, not sides!”. They have volunteers spread throughout the UK. Nobody takes a salary, so all of the money you donate ends up providing aid to people who really need it.
“Hope and Aid Direct stand with the people of Ukraine. We are planning our response to this crisis and details of how we are going to provide assistance will be posted on this page. Whilst some charities are already on the move, at Hope and Aid Direct we aim to ensure that all aid that we take to the people of Ukraine is needed. As such, our operating model is to partner with an aid agency on the ground. They can then provide us with a specific needs list which we can gather, sort, loads on to our trucks and deliver to those most in need.”
