Intro
Precious Solidarity, created by Precious Collective and Alliages, are raising funds for the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund by GlobalGiving. All donations to this fund will support humanitarian assistance in impacted communities in Ukraine and surrounding regions where Ukrainian refugees have fled.
As you will no doubt be aware by now, millions of people in eastern Ukraine are caught in war and are in growing need of urgent humanitarian assistance. The large-scale military invasion of Ukraine is deepening the crisis in the country, killing and wounding citizens, forcing thousands to displace from their homes and splitting families. An estimated 3.4 million people need humanitarian assistance in eastern Ukraine, and a large-scale military invasion of Ukraine would deepen the crisis, likely forcing millions from their homes. Thousands of civilians have already been killed and injured in eight-years of armed conflict in Ukraine, with some 1.5 million forcibly displaced from their destroyed homes. The COVID-19 pandemic is an added challenge for communities where violence and uncertainty takes a heavy toll.

Alliages believes in community and fundamentally opposes war. We stand with the people of Ukraine.

Teaming up with the Precious Collective to create Precious Solidarity, we are raising funds for the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund by GlobalGiving. All donations to this fund will support humanitarian assistance in impacted communities in Ukraine and surrounding regions where Ukrainian refugees have fled. GlobalGiving’s local partners in Ukraine are bringing relief to displaced families and people in high-risk areas, and they need resources to continue and expand their vital work.


What can you do?
We are asking for as many of our wonderful artists & makers that can, to donate one or more pieces of their work, which will be sold on the Precious Collective Instagram page (via our Just Giving page) with all proceeds going directly to Global Giving’s Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund.

As a donating artist, you will need to send:
  • 3 images of each piece that you wish to donate (front view, back view and view of piece being worn) - these will only be used online, so do not need to be high resolution but MUST show the work clearly (these images are being used to sell your work, so try to imagine what you would expect to see if you were buying something online)
  • dimensions of each piece (in mm)
  • materials & processes used
  • your contact email address
  • your recommended sale price for each piece
This must all be sent to precious.collective@gmail.com ASAP.
 
All artists & makers will be responsible for the postage costs once your item(s) has sold as well as ensuring that your work is sent safely to its buyer. Although we ask for a recommended sale price, please note that we are trying to raise as many funds as we can and as quickly as possible, so it may be advisable to donate pieces that are not excessively expensive.


How do I see what jewellery is for sale?
Simply follow the following steps:
1. Visit Instagram@precious.collective to see the work for sale in the Precious Collective feed and stories.
2. If you would like to purchase a piece of work, send a direct message on Instagram to the Precious Collective. Include which piece you
want to buy and they will guide you through how to pay for your item (so long as it hasn’t already sold). Please note that no money will be
taken by Precious Collective, Alliages or any of our makers. Everything will be processed by Just Giving and go straight to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund by GlobalGiving.
3. Once your donation has been received, they will send confirmation of purchase to the artist, who will be responsible for getting the piece of
jewellery safely to you.

If you wish to donate without receiving anything other than the wonderful feeling of helping others in need, you CAN just donate by visiting the Precious Solidarity Just Giving page.
