Supporting Emergency Relief Efforts in Ukraine and Around the World with Save the Children
At FamilyAlbum, our focus has always been on how we can best support families worldwide. While we continue to improve our service to better support the FamilyAlbum community, we also want to do more to support the health and wellbeing of vulnerable families and children.
To this end, our teammate and founder Kenji Kasahara has decided to donate $500,000 to support Save the Children’s emergency response in Ukraine and around the world. The donation will go to the Children’s Emergency Fund, which was used to help 18.5 million children in crisis during 2020 alone.
“During a crisis, Save the Children is always among the first to provide critical support for children and families,” said Kenji. “It’s truly an honor to have this opportunity to contribute to their work in Ukraine and other countries in crisis around the world. As the FamilyAlbum community continues to grow, we remain focused on how we can positively impact the lives of families and children around the world for generations to come.”
This donation marks the second time we’ve had the opportunity to support Save the Children. The first opportunity was in April 2020, when Kenji donated a total of $1 million to organizations including Save the Children to support relief efforts for families and children impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Children are among the most at-risk in an emergency. That is why Save the Children is always at the ready to do whatever it takes to help children and families restore their lives and build resilience for years to come,” said Luciana Bonifacio, Chief Development Officer, Save the Children. “Save the Children is incredibly grateful to Kenji Kasahara and FamilyAlbum for supporting our Children’s Emergency Fund, helping us ensure children are protected in the aftermath of disaster and in the midst of conflict.”
Our hearts go out to everyone who has been affected by the recent crisis. To learn more about Save the Children’s global emergency response efforts, visit https://www.savethechildren.org/us/what-we-do/emergency-response.
