This pen boasts the national colors of Ukraine with beautiful blue hues and a brilliant yellow throughout the body and cap. Then I added something at each end that we’ve never done before. I created two unique glass mosaics on the top cap and the bottom of the body. Ukraine’s national flower is the sunflower that has become a representation of solidarity for the country and all they are going through. I carefully selected Venetian glass pieces with a designs like a sunflower and arranged them to create a larger sunflower mosaic. It is painstaking work since the pieces are so small (each pieces of glass ranges between 2-2.5mm in diameter) and need to be patiently glued into place, but the result is incredibly beautiful. There are a total of 29 pieces of Venetian glass inlaid on the pen top and bottom. I am pleased to dedicate this pen to the people of Ukraine and to stand with them by giving all proceeds to aid refugees who have fled the home they loved. In this time of war and grief, may this pen be a symbol of hope and reminder to pray for peace.

I work for a Christian Non-Profit (TEAM - The Evangelical Alliance Mission) that has workers across the globe. Some of our colleagues are serving in a country bordering Ukraine where they are doing all they can to help with the resettlement of refugees who have fled Ukraine. They are there to care for refugees who have just crossed the border at a facility that has been transformed into a refugee center and involved in preparing other short term housing for them. The money raised through this raffle raises will help provide those refugees with transportation, lodging/accommodations, and provision for their basic needs such as food, clothing, and medical/hygiene supplies. Not only will they provide for their physical needs but they are loving people who will care for their hearts as well.
