Event with Juno Award-winner raised $278,000 (CAD $350,000) for the effort to provide Ukrainian Freedom Fighters with much-needed supplies
Grammy- and Juno Award-winning singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk staged a special benefit on March 28th to support the #UniteWithUkraine campaign.
A platinum-selling, three-time Juno Award-winning artist and Order of Canada recipient from Winnipeg, Ms. Kreviazuk has Ukrainian roots. Her great-grandparents fled Ukraine and the Soviet regime of Joseph Stalin, coming to Canada and settling in rural Manitoba.
The benefit event raised $350,000 for #UniteWithUkraine, an initiative of Ukrainian World Congress to build the world’s largest crowd-funding campaign.
It is an effort to support the freedom fighters on the frontlines in Ukraine with critical equipment like boots, bullet-proof vests, helmets, night-vision goggles and communications devices. The campaign has raised USD 18 million (CAD 22 million) so far.
