In the wake of the Ukrainian refugee crisis, Plum’s team knew they wanted to do something to help. So, they created the Sunflower leo in honor of the Ukrainian national flower. This limited-edition Flip Side leotard featured a vibrant print in Ukrainian blue and yellow that represented strength, beauty, and resilience. This leo was exclusively available for pre-order, and $15 from each purchase went towards Global Giving’s Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund.
Through the sale of this leo and the contributions of their #PlumFamily, Plum was able to donate $7,000 to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund, where the donation is distributed to multiple groups working to aid Ukrainian refugees in different ways. These groups include but are not limited to the Legal Development Network providing relocation assistance to Ukrainian families and serving 200,000 refugees monthly, Fundacja Koalicja Dla Mlodych an organization helping Ukrainian refugees in Poland, and the Fuel Relief Fund, which distributes fuel to power generators and humanitarian fleets across Ukraine.
They are so proud of the humanitarian work that Plum and the gymnastics community as a whole have done to support this crisis. Thank you to all of the #PlumGirls who helped them contribute to this cause!
