"We’ve seen an outpouring of support from the American public wanting to help with the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. To assist the American Red Cross in this effort, financial contributions are the best way to support the needs of this ongoing crisis. Your donation could support immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long-term recovery or other critical humanitarian services both in Ukraine and surrounding countries," offered Emily Osment, an American Red Cross Global spokesperson. "We ask that you please do not send in-kind goods such as food, clothing, blankets or toys as these items can be difficult to manage on the ground. All money raised through the American Red Cross will enable the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement to respond to the humanitarian needs generated by this crisis."

As of March 8, U.N. officials are reporting that 2 million people have fled Ukraine. Countless more are displaced within the country itself.
