Hi Everyone! We am supporting this amazing women Kseniia Kalmus & Monika Bębenek in their journey to Italy! Read the story and add a penny 🙏🏼 It is very symbolic – your input is symbolic too…🇵🇱🇺🇦🇬🇧🇮🇹 Thank you Sylwia Tokarz-Rak for getting us involved x
Representative of Ukraine / Kseniia Kalmus, organizer of humanitarian aid for Ukraine, graduate of Blooming Horizons / Kwitnące Horyzonty in the International Florist Competition ARTEFLORANDO 2022 in Italy
That’s the story…
Do you sometimes wonder what the day of a person who sees the war at a home country looks like ? Kseniia was there… She has seen it… and she decided to use all her talents and contacts to support and help those in need…
Here are some photos from May 14, 2022, check what she’s been doing
We have spring … in Ukraine, despite the war, it is also spring, but it looks different … so very different this year…
Last year, Kseniia became a finalist of a flower competition in Kiev, Ukraine, where she won a participation in the Arteflorando 2022 International Floristic Competition in Italy (you can check it here: https: //www.facebook.com/associazioneleveranoinfiore)
On February 24, 2022, the war broke out in Ukraine, and Kseniia was there, in Kiev… In Ukraine… just in the middle of these horrendous events…
On the very first day Kseniia donated blood to those in need and organised humanitarian aid.
Her florist shop turns into an aid logistics center. She spends many hours every day organising and visiting people affected by the war … she is coping beautifully with the mental burden and fights by helping.

Kseniia is a nice, warm and talented person! She now needs a few days to break away from the nightmare of war and pursue her passions, then come back to help those in need again.
We want Kseniia to represent Ukraine – this beautiful and brave nation by showing emotions with flowers, express pain, despair and hope … It is a symbol 🇺🇦
Kseniia needs funds for this to make it happen. She is not the kind of person to ask for help herself.. she in on the other side – she’s a helper, a fighter, a community leader!
That’s why I’m running this fundraiser – it’s for Kseniia! It is to support her, to enable her to get into the competition in Italy, enable her to work with the beautiful and unique flowers she loves so much! This cause is symbolic! It is for all Ukrainians! Let’s get united by helping Kseniia…
Money is needed for travel, transportation of materials and all things she needs to take to Italy, including structures and flowers.
We left Poland on May 24th, 2022 to travel to Italy and the competition starts on May 27-29, 2022 … that’s why we have little time! Please support us!
This crowdfunding is organised by @Monika Bębenek / Kseniia’s assistant in the competition
