A Whitman homeowner banded trees on the front lawn with the colors of Ukraine’s flag in support of the nation now under invasion by Russia. Americans have been stepping up to help in many ways, including thousands of veterans from the United States volunteering for miltary service to Ukriane. Americans are also donating to charities like Chéf Jose Andrés’ World Central Kitchen, which is feeding refugees, and to Airbnb, through which donors are booking stays in Ukraine homes with no intention of traveling there — to raise funds for Ukranian families. As of Sunday 61,000 nights were booked by Airbnb donors in the U.S., U.K., and Canada.
