Donations: I have painstakingly researched these two options. They help people regarless of religion, ethnicy, and sexual orientation:
HIAS: Use this link and your donation will go directly to the refugee crisis in Ukraine. This fund was created by a Red Desert Violin student (who is a lawyer). Read her story. She came to the USA as a refugee, assisted by HIAS. https://us-p2p.netdonor.net/923/personal-fundraising-campaign/118372/svetlanas-fundraiser-to-support-hias-ukraine-crisis-response
