New Zealand International Red Cross member Ron Chamberlain is selling t-shirts to raise money for the people of Ukraine.

The 84-year-old Tauranga man feels very strongly about doing everything he can to help Ukranians due to his experiences with warfare.

“Seeing the bombs falling in Glasgow during the World War II has been a big motivator for me to help people in those situations,” says Ron.

He has designed shirts to print with company EmbroidMe, and hopes to sell at least 1000 shirts locally at $45 each.

The t-shirt displays a drawing of a Red Cross dog from 1917 during the First World War. Ron hopes by bringing awareness to his project, the community will help him to aid those in need in Ukraine.

“The plan is to sell as many t-shirts as possible to New Zealanders who are concerned about the men, women and children who are dying from the antics of a madman.”

“I’d like to raise $10,000 for the International Red Cross to hand over to Ukraine, without one penny for administration.”

“It’s a bit sad when other countries are doing so much, I think people should be doing more, by doing this I’m trying to add on a bit extra.”
