    No 217: Supporting the Women and Children in Ukraine

    Together We Support Women and Children in Ukraine

    AnaOno stands with the women of Ukraine and extends our hearts to the communities of people affected by the war. We are partnering with our Ukrainian factory to bring you a special underwear collection curated by in-house brand, Memème, to fundraise for humanitarian aid.

    Understanding the Russo-Ukrainian War

    The conflict between Russia and Ukraine has been ongoing, beginning in 2014 and reigniting recently in early 2022. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24th, 2022, escalated the war and sparked a major refugee crisis, with a third of the population displaced. Support for the Ukrainian people is an urgent matter. AnaOno’s compassion and support for women always includes those around the globe. 

    More information on the ongoing war can be found here.


    Why AnaOno supports Ukraine:

    We began working with our Ukrainian factory in an effort to launch a unique collection designed by breast cancer community artist Marianne  DuQuette Cuozzo in 2021. Our joint mission and plans to partner were put on hold due to the crisis, so we were compelled to do something to help our community in need.

    Our Ukrainian sisters are Never Alone™. AnaOno is partnering with our Ukrainian factory, and underwear brand Memème, to support humanitarian aid for Ukraine. Your purchase has two key support systems, one, it helps keep this Ukrainian factory in business and supports factory workers and their families. In addition, 100% of the net proceeds from our curated underwear collection will go directly to women’s shelters and maternity hospitals in Ukraine for support of humanitarian aid. 

    The AnaOno community spans all borders, and there has never been a more critical time to support our global community. Help our partner brand reach their fundraising goal of $50,000 by shopping the collection, or donating directly.

    Who is Memème?

    Memème is an innovative Ukrainian lingerie brand that brings eye-catching, colorful patterns to their comfortable, lightweight underwear. Memème believes underwear should support women in their dynamic lives, and combines comfort and quality with beautiful prints.

    "Since the beginning of war, we have all been volunteers and have been helping our country. Our partners in all countries where we work ask us how they can help Ukraine and offer different options for assistance. We decided to do what we do best: make underwear with designs."

    From our friends overseas:

    "Since the beginning of the war, we have all been volunteers and have been helping our country. Our partners in all countries where we work ask us how they can help Ukraine and offer different options for assistance. We decided to do what we do best: make lingerie with designs. And we have developed patriotic panty designs where all profits from the sale of each box will be transferred to the Help Ukraine Foundation. For the entire amount collected, we will purchase and deliver equipment and necessary materials for maternity hospitals, agreed with the Ministry of Health of Ukraine. Our goal is to raise $50,000 and we are launching this campaign in Ukraine, USA and all European countries where we have partners."
