After watching the American TV series Chernobyl (HBO), “Léa” became interested in the fate of the dogs who were victims of the biggest nuclear disaster in recent decades. Many animals died after a serious accident in 1986, but others, abandoned by their owners, survived. For the past three years, an association called the “Clean Futures Fund”, has been taking care of them and providing veterinary care (food, vaccines, etc.). This committed citizen, Léa, has set up a crowdfunding campaign to support the association. More than $3,340 (€3,000) have already been collected. In addition to the campaign on GoFundme, she shot a documentary with a director about the dogs of Chernobyl.
The dogs of Chernobyl
The main goal of the “Dogs of Chernobyl” program is to provide humane management for the nearly 1,000 stray animals that live in the affected areas around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. During the programs in 2017 and 2018, over 850 stray cats and dogs were treated, thanks to the support of all of the campaign’s followers and donors. The “Clean Futures Fund” is a small organization that does not have a huge mailing list of donors, nor does it have a large marketing agency that helps it reach around the globe. The organization is simply a group of focused individuals who care about accomplishing their mission. Every dollar, every share on social media, and every email counts.
The workers at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and people in Ukraine are so grateful for this program and that donors have helped to support it to provide all of this care for these animals. They can now understand that they are not alone, that they have not been forgotten and that there are still people around the world who care.

A sister, a daughter
On Ulule, you can finance the printing of the story – “She could be a sister, a daughter, a niece, an aunt, a friend, a neighbor”. This book will aim to raise awareness and fight against sexism and violence against women. Originally, two authors, Céline and Mathilde, who initially participated in the #Inktober challenge on social networks.
The principle: in October 2019, artists exercised their talent for a month by sharing a drawing each day (based on a word). And it is from this experience that the desire to create work that is intended to be educational was born. The campaign has just been won, 100% has been achieved. There are still several days left to give the project a little push.
Le XXI, a restaurant that hires people with intellectual disabilities
In Rouen, France, the Trisomie 21 Rouen association will open a restaurant next spring like no other, as it will hire people with intellectual disabilities or trisomy. A successful crowdfunding campaign has been launched to support the solidarity project. There are three days left to participate. It is taking place on the KissKissBankBank platform. The restaurant will offer dishes made from local and seasonal products.
These few words could have been enough to describe the XXI project. But Le XXI will be much more than just a restaurant. Le XXI will be a place where everyone can enjoy life. The association Trisomie 21 Rouen was created 30 years ago, by parents, around an essential value: confidence in the person with trisomy or intellectual deficiency. Around this value, they set themselves a precise objective: to initiate, develop and perpetuate the school and social integration of children and adults with Trisomy 21 and other intellectual deficiencies in the ordinary environment.
