If you contribute $10, we will match it 1 for 1. This means that your $10 will actually drive $20 of value for the B&B Ukrainian refugee housing project in Germany which will comprise 4 or 5 apartments for mothers and their children in need. We launched this program on March 9, 2022 so please bear with us in finishing our project website in the coming days (http://bbhousingandhelp.org). We plan to pursue what we call "radical transparency" by showing, in real-time, every single donation along with the first name, city and state of each donor. Please note that due to bureaucratic time constraints and effort in setting up a new 501c3 entity, your donation will not be eligible for US tax deduction--neither will our match. We are doing this because we want to help Ukrainian refugees that have been displaced in the war now, without waiting.
There is absolutely zero compensation to our company or to any other administrators or overhead. All individuals involved in housing procurement, set-up, etc. are either volunteering or they are being paid separately from outside sources. Your dollars and our match are exclusively for (a) rent and utilities for refugee apartments in Germany and any related direct costs, (b) furnishing these apartments with IKEA furniture and basic household goods for cooking, eating, etc, (c) overland travel expenses for refugee families from Eastern Poland to Rostock, Germany, (d) food and clothing for refugee families as needed and to the extent that other organizations do not cover these expenses.
Lastly, any excess proceeds from this project, will be donated to UNICEF and nothing will be retained by Bottles and Burps, Bio Handel GmbH, or any affiliated individuals.
