This is not my usual kind of post, but then there’s nothing usual about the war against Ukraine. I’ll get to the backstory in a second, but I want to jump to what’s important here – the two links in tap.bio: one to @felicityspector
’s compelling article and the other to an organization supporting the children and families of those killed in the war, @antytila.ua
Many of you might follow Felicity for her posts about baking and sweets in London, her homebase. But for months now, in addition to eating pudding and working as a TV news journalist, she has been traveling to Ukraine to deliver supplies to the front. What she is doing is remarkable, courageous and dangerous. On her most recent trip (read about it in the article), she and three Ukrainian volunteers drove 1,000 miles in 2 days to the Donetsk region. She’s made other similarly perilous missions to other battlefronts – look at her Instagram feed for more information. And please watch the video of the bakery that was bombed to the ground but is once again making “volunteer bread” for thousands of people. Like Felicity’s article, it is both heart wrenching and inspiring. Felicity is inspiring.
If you can help support the people of these communities in any way, I hope you will. I also hope you’ll support Felicity by following her posts – the sweet ones, the uplifting ones and the ones that will make you weep – and encouraging her in the work that she’s taken on – xoxoDorie
