We are all heartbroken by the crisis that continues to unfold in Ukraine. While I would encourage everyone to donate directly to charitable organizations or look into more specific ways to support, there are a number of compelling art auctions and photography print sales ending soon that are contributing to humanitarian aid. Below are some of my favorites.

Participating artists: Daniel Shea, Coco Capitán, Rineke Dijkstra, Bogdan Shirokov, Sam Youkilis, Jamie Hawkesworth, Zhenya and Tanya Posternak and more.
Proceeds are going to World Central Kitchen, with participating artists having the option to receive 25% from the sale of their prints, which can be an important lifeline for photographers who remain in or are fleeing from violence in Ukraine.

Participating artists: Lea Colombo, Chad Moore, Tina Tyrell, Oliviero Toscani, Sam Gregg, Felicity Ingram, Brianna Capozzi, Harley Weir, Quentin Debriey and more.
