The proceeds of this year sale, will go towards the WOSM Ukrainian Scouts Humanitarian response, as in previous years the donation will be done through the World Scout Foundation.
All EU orders will be posted from the Netherlands so no customs duty needs to be paid.
Statement by WOSM :
The World Organization of the Scout Movement is coordinating emergency relief efforts together with the World Scout Foundation and in close collaboration with our Eurasian and European Scouting Regions and the National Organization of Scouts of Ukraine (NOSU) to respond to the unfolding humanitarian crisis resulting from the war in Ukraine.
Thanks to donations from Scout groups, individual supporters, BP Fellows and National Scout Organizations, we reached our initial target of $100,000 USD within just a few days of its launch on 25 February, 2022. This funding goes directly to the NOSU to purchase essential items for the civilian population affected by the fighting, including medicines, food and water (through Red Cross) and shelter supplies like sleeping bags, blankets and mats. It also supports psychological support and educational activities for children and young people, in partnership with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

As of 18 March, nearly three million refugees have fled Ukraine. In response to this and the devastating situation on the ground in Ukraine, we raised our fundraising target to $500,000 USD. These additional donations will be directed to Ukraine as well as neighbouring National Scout Organizations in the region who have been helping and coordinating the humanitarian response, including those in Bulgaria, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovakia.

WOSM is working closely with impacted National Scout Organizations to assess their evolving needs to support the countless humanitarian support initiatives led by Scouts and to ensure your contributions reach them as quickly as possible. As our understanding of the needs become clearer, we will continue to provide updates and increase our fundraising target again.
