Doctors Without Borders Fundraiser Result

I have been processing lots of grief lately as I try to understand what’s happening in Ukraine. I haven’t lived there for years, but it’s the place where I was born and that shaped me, and its pain is my pain. When one feels helpless, the best thing is to reach out to others and help someone else. So I decided to hold a fundraiser for Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF.) It’s been a while since I’ve been thinking of this idea and looking for the best way to organize it. This year has been challenging for many people around the world, and I know that our community wanted to contribute. We’ve raised over $5000.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is a reputable organization known for its projects all over the globe. They help with children care, offer help to impoverished communities and those experiencing military conflicts. Their structure is quite lean, so it means that the money, even if it’s a small amount, goes a long way.

The fundraiser ran till June 30, 2022, and the winner is Vincent. However, I will leave a link for those who would like to donate anyway.

  • M: Dear Victoria,

    it is so good to see you have returned to your website! I looked for your thoughts a few times lately – I always do when considering a perfume, and I hoped you were safe and well despite the war. We need more beauty in the world now, but even if you need peace and quiet and have no desire to write any more, you have already given us so much.

  • OnWingsofSaffron: Dear Victoria, what an utter delight to see you‘re back with Bois de Jasmin!!! I think, no I am absolutely sure we all missed you and your wonderful thoughts sorely! Good to to read BdJ again!!
    I realize that these times must be horrific for you. It is so very, very demoralizing that a war is raging in this day and age. Ever so often I rub my eyes and think, but no, it just cannot, cannot be!? Yet, there we are.
    I wish you all the very best! July 18, 2022 at 3:53pm Reply

  • Klaas: Dear Victoria, I am so happy to see that you’re back online. I for one have missed your delightful writing and the bubble of beauty your website offers to all of us.

    Congratulations on raising this beautiful sum for Doctors Without Borders. This truly is one way of making a positive gesture within these bleak and depressing times. Their people are among the bravest in the world. They are usually the first to arrive after catastrophe happens and keep on doing good work in very dire and dangerous circumstances…..I’ve been supporting them for years.

    I wish you courage, strength and lots of inspiration. And thank you for returning to us 🙂 July 27, 2022 at 12:25pm Reply

    • Victoria: Thank you very much for your nice wishes and these words. I agree with the overall impressiveness of DWB. They’re my number one charity to support, so I was glad to see how well everyone responded. July 28, 2022 at 10:48am Reply
