MaydanSF

MaydanSF is a platform created by Ukrainians living in the San Francisco Bay Area to support Ukraine in its fight for Democracy, Independence, and Freedom. Our current goal is to help Ukraine stand up to Russian aggression by bringing awareness to people in the SF Bay Area about events in Ukraine, so that we can all support Ukraine together. MaydanSF collects donations and sends help to Ukrainian army. We arrange for the purchase and shipment of needed equipment directly to Ukrainian soldiers and army volunteers. We report all spending and purchases here, on our facebook page. Brave Ukrainian people are fighting for the Country’s freedom now, they need our help.

Mark Zuckerberg, the chairman and chief executive of Facebook, Inc., will be hosting the next Townhall Q&A at Facebook HQ in Menlo Park tomorrow, Thursday, May 14 at 4:30pm pacific time.

"This is an opportunity for me to hear from you and the rest of our community about how to serve you better.
If you have a question you'd like me to answer, leave a comment below." /Mark Zuckerberg/

The top responses to Mark's post have been overwhelmingly from Ukrainian Facebook users asking to address the problem of pro-Ukrainian activists and bloggers being banned recently. Ukrainian Facebook community claims the bans to be caused by mass reporting organized by 'Russian trolls' as well as incorrect content review by Facebook moderators.

Even the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko asked Facebook's CEO for reaction: https://www.facebook.com/petroporoshenko/posts/620914074709655

Most likely, Mark Zuckerberg will have to address the question from Ukrainian community tomorrow. Tune-in to hear his response: https://www.facebook.com/qawithmark

These days the mankind commemorates the victims of the Second World War and pays tribute to the fallen and war veterans, the heroes that sacrificed themselves for the Great Victory.

Ukraine marks this unforgettable event on May 8 as the Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation and on May 9 as 70th anniversary of Victory over Nazism in Europe and Day of Victory.

Blessed memory and eternal glory to the heroes who fought for Ukraine in WWII and those who defend her from the Russian aggression today!

MaydanSF is collecting money for the 72nd Ukrainian army brigade, which is defending the front lines near Volnovakha.

We need to get them at least 2 Tablets (Samsung Galaxy Tab3 7inch + memory + case) ~$150 each, as well as 2 marine binoculars ($100-$200 each). These items are required to coordinate and strengthen their defense ability.

Let’s all help these Ukrainian soldiers, they need our support, please donate (any amount is appreciated).

PS: As you know, many warning calls arrive, that Russian will re-launch further offensive after May 9th. Yesterday near Artemivsk, several Ukrainian soldiers were killed, many injured after another Russian GRAD (missile launcher) attack.

Please continue to support Ukrainian defenders.
Thank you!

On May 2nd, 2015 Ukrainians of the Greater San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento took part in a Hike at Park Ukraina with Bishop Daniel of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA to the resting place of Father Agapius Honcharenko, where a small panakhyda service and prayer took place.

“Park Ukraina” is the site of the farm and burial place of the Ukrainian patriot and exiled orthodox priest Agapius Honcharenko (1832-1916), located at Garin Regional Park, Hayward, California.
Honcharenko was the first nationally conscious Ukrainian to arrive in the United States. He published the first American newspaper in Ukrainian and Russian languages, The Alaska Herald, from 1868-1872. He wrote the first book for the educational use of Native Alaskans. After moving to San Francisco, then to Hayward in 1873, he continued to publish political literature, which was smuggled into Czarist Russia. Honcharenko was a prominent scholar, humanitarian, and early champion for human rights.

Yurii E Babkov: "Майже 150 років тому у видатного українця отця Агапія зародилася ідея створення Тихоокеанської України. Пройшли роки, і на пагорбах Каліфорнії, де він заснував ферму "Україна", "Українське братство" і гротову церкву "Свята печера" існує Україна - парк, в якому він знайошов свій спокій. І як сотню років тому до отця Агапія йдуть люди, щоб вклонитися силі його Віри і Духу."
