While all mattress deliveries have been special, this morning’s to the school was beyond description.

The headmistress called explaining that her school cares for refugee children ranging from 3-6 years old, with many as orphans or with special needs.

She conveyed any # would be appreciated, so I asked the requirement.

Stopped by the suddenness – why would anyone “calculate” which children get beds?

When told that the entire # would be delivered, she simply cried.

Deprived of family and home by the horror of this evil assault, they are truly victims.

And despite the right to lament they hold onto hope – a hope to be happy, to be held.

Dressed in traditional clothes they presented us with cakes, and they prepared songs & dances.

Most poignantly, each of them had drawn a card of peace.

Rest Assured LogoAs each child presented a card of their creation they only sought a bit of validation, recognition, and approval – a connection to assure them that they are not totally alone – someone cares.

Thanks to all of you for being with me the past 7 months.

We cannot explain why innocent children like this must suffer or why lives are lost defending the right to exist.

I wish that I could report that today’s delivery exhausts the need, but sadly, the need only seems to increase (or become more apparent).

As your support has proven, we can strive to make a difference – a material / substantial contribution. 

The revelation that everyone connected (friends, supporters, the City Council, the Mayor, Home Essentials, family, civil society) led to a day when the lives of the innocent experience some rest from war, loneliness, and loss should allow all of you to understand that today is more than special, it is beyond description.

Ukraine has collected 78.7 million tons of new harvest and increased its agricultural exports to the EU by 11%.  As of the third week of December, farmers in all regions of Ukraine have threshed 78.7 million tons of grain and oil crops: 57.86 million tons and 20.76 million, respectively.

Compared to data from the same date a year ago, the total harvest is higher by 23.6%, particularly grain by 24.2% and oil by 22.1%.   However, it is worth considering that this year, corn has been harvested from 88% of the total sown area, while a year ago, it was only from 75%.

Meanwhile, according to the European Commission’s report on EU agricultural trade, Ukraine increased agricultural exports to the EU from January to September by 11% (up to €8.75B) compared to the same period last year.

It remained in third place among the largest suppliers of agricultural products to the EU after Brazil and the UK.

During the same period, Ukraine imported €2.505B worth of farm products from the EU (+19% over 2022).

Check it out:   My media confidence and speaking stature has grown by leaps and bounds since California-based Edwin B Cohen (Ed) saw the value of inviting me onto his Global-TVtalkshow (click, go to the youtubechannel).   And here’s one of the programs featuring me  I am now a regular contributor – or as Ed calls us “cast members” – taking part in panel discussions and hybrid global conferences, like the one he produced at the HSBC London Canary Wharf.   It has afforded me the added bonus of networking with senior leaders from all over the world with decades of experience in their industries.   I have been blown away by some of the stories I’ve heard – outrageous gender discrimination and challenging workforce relocations on the one hand, to stories of great courage and resilience in practice eg improving life for the war-dispossessed in the Ukraine and leading a business with early-diagnosis Parkinson’s Disease.   Ed recently launched a PublicRelationsConsultancy called Global Press Club … to help other speakers, authors, business leaders and doctors and attorneys and a variety of thought-leaders grow in confidence, proficiency and credibility via 1-2-1 interviews, small group conversations and big panel discussions. Subscription can be just 1 month or 12 months and also 6 months and 3 months.  Fees are low; the value is sky-high in terms of quality service and smooth delivery of guidance. He takes into the media studio for media prep and guidance to help you become comfortable and be “camera ready”.  Talk with Ed (+1)619 787 3100 (whatsapp ok).  Ed’s gently curious and gentlemanly manner will help you to relax and grow in media confidence.  There’s a vast difference between speaking from the platform and learning how to navigate interview questions.   If you struggle to think on your feet (as I do!) and tend to think of your best retorts after the fact, then practice with Ed is a must! “
