Kudos to the Lean Enterprise Institute and the Lean Global Network for the message they sent out today via email (which is also on their website).
It reads, in part:
“Last week the Lean Enterprise Institute (LEI) and Lean Global Network (LGN) expressed their solidarity with Ukraine.
To demonstrate that solidarity, LEI and LGN pledge to support sanctions against Russia and have established a GoFundMe to collect donations to help our sister institute community, Lean Institute Ukraine (LIU).
Effective immediately, LEI and LGN are suspending business with any Russian entity, including relationships with an LGN member, the Lean Institute Russia.
To support LIU's team and their families, the Lean Global Network has established a GoFundMe to collect donations dedicated to helping them meet their basic needs, such as food and shelter. Our goal is to collect $280,000, which equals the annual payroll of LIU.”
I've donated to their GoFundMe fundraiser, which has currently raised over $50k toward their $280k goal.
I hope you can also join in the effort here — either monetarily, or by sharing the fundraiser with others.
