This is the first time and hopefully the last that a war is raging at our borders.
I have first turned into a news junky, reading everything and being stucked the Ukraine feed. It didnt help with the stress and the sadness I have felt in being a useless bystander; So I decided to compartimentalize, to select the news I would read and dedicate only 2 h a day. I also “snoozed for 30 days” so many people..
This helped in getting calmer and more in charge of my feelings. But what really helped what lending a helping hand, to feel I could have a tiny impact for the wellbeing of the Ukainian. So I booked a week stay in a Youth Hostel in Kyiv with no intention to stay but just to help with some cash.
AirBnB IS waiving their fees and hosts are getting their money right away. I sent the money with a note, and here is the message I received yesterday. There are plenty of rooms, starting a few dollars a night. It makes a difference ❤️
