Show your solidarity with, and take part in raising money for Ukrainian refugees. With a simple £10 investment, you can raise at least £140 towards much-needed relief efforts through #RibbonsForUkraine.
Suitable for Primary and Secondary Schools, youth, community groups, churches, mosques and temples. £10 will buy you enough ribbon and pins to make 140 #RibbonsForUkraine. Sell them in your local community, school, shops or club for a minimum of £1 each and make a lasting difference for some of the countless families who have had to flee from their homes.
We recommend starting off by getting your class of students or community group to make between 100 – 140 ribbons and sell them first before making any more, that way you’ll be able to easily keep track of the progress you’re making.

You can donate the money you raise through our Justgiving campaign. All funds will go to a range of on-the-ground charities in Ukraine and surrounding countries, as well as to direct support of Ukranian families arriving in the UK. Find out more on the giving page.
Every penny of the money you raise will help provide vital practical and medical supplies – and help families who have left everything behind.
Share photos of your ribbon-making with the hashtag #RibbonsForUkraine. Amplify your fundraising by getting your school, faith or community group, family or friends involved.

Ribbon making step-by-step
Ribbons for Ukraine are quick and easy to make.
Ribbon comes in various widths and is easy to find online or from a local craft store. We suggest using ribbon that’s between 10mm and 20mm wide. You will also need craft safety pins.
Cut one yellow ribbon to about 16cm / 6.5 inches in length, at an angle.
Cut a blue ribbon to the same length.
Place the blue and yellow ribbons over one another, line them up, and fold them over each other.
Take a craft safety pin and attach it to the middle of the ribbon, where they overlap to secure it in place.
Sell your ribbons for a donation of £1 or more!
#RibbonsForUkraine is hosted by Oasis – a community transformation organisation. Our 52 Academies, Oasis churches, and Oasis community hubs will be playing our part in raising funds, but #RibbonsForUkraine is for everyone!
Oasis works in the UK as well as in Uganda, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, India, Belgium, and Kyrgyzstan. In recent months we have supported refugees from Iran, Syria, Afghanistan – and now Ukraine, through housing, education, and through community support.
The money raised through our Ukraine Appeal will go to accredited partner organisations and charities working directly with Ukrainian refugees where it is most needed. Find out more about Oasis’ work at www.oasisuk.org
