Is Your Family Looking for Ways to Support the People of The Ukraine?

Check out these creative ways to help:

Support World Central Kitchen by purchasing Ukrainian Honey Cake from BZ Parent Natalie Kaplan (mom to Leo in JK) at her bakery, JR Dessert Bakery.
“Throughout May we will be baking our version of an old-fashioned Ukrainian honey cake topped with a cream cheese buttercream frosting. ALL of the proceeds will go to World Central Kitchen. WCK is a not-for-profit founded by well-known chef and restaurateur José Andrés. His team is currently on the front-lines of the war feeding tens-of-thousands of refugees every day. Our hearts are broken for the people of Ukraine and we feel this is the best way to show our support and solidarity. Stop in and pick up your slice today! “
JR Dessert Bakery - 2841 W Howard St, Chicago IL (773) 465-6733
Since organizations in the Ukraine are most in need of financial support, PJ Our Way has come up with an easy way to get kids and families involved.
