a Kind of Refugee / subscriptions
Dear Readers, Dear Friends,
War in Ukraine spawned a kind of economy of generosity. I put my time and energy toward doing what feels most urgent, according to my own triage sense. I share whatever I’ve got, while other people help me—with shelter, food, transportation, advice. Periodically I’m paid generously to participate in an event or write something for publication. Like everyone, I donate to various campaigns to support Ukraine’s armed forces.
a Kind of Refugee has been a constant through changing activities, locations, and wartime conditions. It has proven to be work worth doing.
And everyone who wants to read it can do so free of charge. If you’re subscribed to the mailing list, you’ll receive every new letter. Your attention to my writing and to Ukraine matters most to me.
Now if you have the means and desire, please consider signing up for a monthly subscription to support me as I keep participating in Ukraine’s civic and military fight for independence and writing about all this in English.
I’ve also added a couple options to make a one-time donation. If you choose an annual subscription, I’ll contribute $31 of each to Ukraine’s defense. If you’d like to donate even more, then $50 will go to help Ukraine.
The archive of letters at akindofrefugee2022.substack.com will remain open and shareable.
Thank you for reading, for thinking, for doing, for speaking up, for staying and withstanding the temptation to look away.
