We began offering Ukrainian flag buttons on our Etsy shop last week but wanted to find a unique way to support Ukrainians fighting for their freedom, and those impacted by the war. We hired a consultant artist, 7-year-old Amelia, to help us design some pins to raise funds. First grader Amelia is an experienced button artist and producer who felt hearts, peace signs, and two children sharing a toy best communicated her hope for Ukraine. She had strong opinions about the look of the final product and two designs are available featuring her artwork.
Proceeds from these buttons will support Voices of Children, a Ukraine-based nonprofit organization meeting the needs of children impacted by war. We researched multiple organizations working on the ground in Ukraine, but are particularly moved by this organization’s focus on serving children, in both long-term and emergency capacities. Their use of art therapy to support children who have experienced trauma speaks to our hearts as artists and parents. Please consider donating directly to support their work.
These buttons are available in sizes ranging from 1 inch to 3.5 inch, and a 2 inch square. You can also get this artwork on a fridge magnet, badge magnet or pocket mirror. Bulk orders are available, so if you’d like more than ten, drop us a line! Our friends at First Congregational Church purchased 100 of these pins for distribution at Sunday services and received a wonderful response from the congregation. As always, these union label buttons are designed, printed and produced in Topeka, Kansas with parts and presses exclusively made in the USA.
