About this fundraiser

In the midst of adversity, the true spirit of humanity shines brightest when we extend our hands in solidarity, support, and brotherhood to those facing unimaginable challenges. Today, I am embarking on a journey to harness the power of technology and community to make a tangible difference in the lives of our friends in Ukraine—a nation that, despite the distance, is close to our hearts here in Canada through deep-rooted ties and sister cities. Our mission is to 3D print non-lethal parts and supplies that are crucial for their efforts to rebuild, protect, and sustain their communities amidst their ongoing struggles.

This endeavor is not just a campaign; it's a personal commitment to honor a bond forged in respect, admiration, and shared values. I had the privilege of being trained as a heavy-duty mechanic by a man of great honor and dignity, a retired Ukrainian military serviceman who became more than just a mentor to me—he became a brother, a father figure. His strength, resilience, and unwavering sense of duty have left an indelible mark on my life, shaping my understanding of what it means to stand for something greater than oneself. His family, like his lessons, became an integral part of my own, weaving our lives together in a tapestry of shared history and mutual respect.

Growing up in a military family, I was instilled with a profound sense of honor, dignity, and a duty to extend a helping hand to our allies in their time of need. It is a principle that transcends borders and speaks to the very essence of who we are as Canadians: compassionate, steadfast friends and unwavering supporters of freedom and justice. The situation in Ukraine is a stark reminder that the values we hold dear are not guaranteed but are fought for and protected by the brave and resilient.

Our project to 3D print parts for Ukraine is a beacon of hope and solidarity. It represents our collective effort to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Ukrainian people, providing them with the tools and resources they need to face the challenges ahead. It's a testament to the unbreakable spirit of friendship and the shared commitment to uphold the dignity of every individual facing adversity.

In these times of hardship, let us come together as a community, inspired by the lessons of those who have shown us the meaning of courage and the power of an unwavering commitment to justice. This is more than a fundraiser; it's a statement of our shared humanity and an affirmation of our duty to support each other, no matter the distance or the challenge.

To all who join us in this cause, you are part of a powerful movement of compassion and action. Together, we can help alleviate the suffering and contribute to a future where peace, security, and dignity prevail for our Ukrainian friends and their generations to come. Let us stand united in this mission, for in the spirit of cooperation and friendship, we find our greatest strength and our hope for a better world.
