Who we are
Supporting Ukraine should be simple and cost-free. We are Boston-based students with a mission to help Ukraine-supporting businesses in your area.
How this works
CustomerThrough our app, you have access to a map highlighting businesses around you that support Ukraine. Whether you are looking for a hotel, a coffee shop, or a gym — we've got you covered!
BusinessWant to help Ukraine but not sure where to start? We want to give you a hand in brainstorming and promoting your support! If you are a business that already supports Ukraine, we want to promote you and your initiatives to the Ukrainian community and Ukraine-supporters in Boston.
Why we do it
We are Ukrainian students living in Boston while our home country is going through war. It means a lot to us when local businesses and Bostonians support our Ukrainian community through small but meaningful actions.However, such help often comes at a cost to business owners, which makes their support even more valuable.
Shop4UA is created by us, the Ukrainian students, to support the local businesses that are standing with us in the fight for Freedom and Peace.
Supporting Ukraine should not come at a cost, and Shop4UA is born to make that happen.
