As the war unfolded in Ukraine in late February, our team gathered to raise funds and help support the families impacted by this devastating situation. We organized a quick sales event with one of our most sought-after products - the Jillian Harris x Jackson Rowe Scholar Shacket - and donated 100% of the proceeds to the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR).
We are proud to share that in just five days, over 600 members of The Jilly Box community contributed to this cause, and together we raised a total of $138,600 CAD. On March 16th, Tyler Evans, co-owner of The Jilly Box, sent the funds off to the UNHCR. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank everyone for making this possible!
This donation will support UNHCR’s Ukraine emergency response both inside Ukraine and in all surrounding countries. The UNHCR teams are on the grounds working around the clock, providing protection, shelter, healthcare, food, water, blankets, tarps, and more to support the most vulnerable.
