Jinjer raises over $140,000 for Ukraine with T-shirt campaign

Ukrainian metal band Jinjer have raised over $140,000 in aid for their country after Russia invaded it with charity t-shirts they launched earlier this month instead of a planned tour of America alongside Slipknot at the Knotfest Roadshow.

After Russia began attacking in February, Jinjer confirmed the safety of its members but condemned the invasion led by Russian President Vladimir Putin. In protest, proceeds from the sale of the limited-edition shirts will help charities across Ukraine.

There is still time to order your Jinjer t-shirt from the group’s official stores. See the two models available at the bottom of this article.

Jinjer said in a March 20 update, “Dear friends! Over 11,000 Donation Tee’s sold and €130,000 [$143,475 U.S.] increased in recent weeks! Your support will not only help so many in need, but send a much needed positive sign that they are not alone.”

The group continued: “The first donations totaling 10,000 have already been sent to a bomb shelter in Kyiv housing and protecting 300 people, and to a Slovak humanitarian convoy collecting urgent medical supplies, food and clothing for delivery. in Uzhgorod for refugees from Kharkiv and Chernihiv regions which have been badly affected since the start of the war.”

They added, “Further updates on where and who your donations have helped will be posted soon! On behalf of the entire band, crew, label and all of Ukraine — THANK YOU! For those of you who haven’t picked up a shirt yet, both models are available.”

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine followed a period of tension between the two countries after Putin last year began stationing troops near their shared border in a continuation of the crisis that began in 2014 with the Russian-Ukrainian war, as Vox pointed out. The situation became even more tense when Putin threatened countries that might try to intercede, according to CNN. He subsequently declared a nuclear alert and ordered his forces into “special combat readiness” last month, according to The New York Times.

In addition to Jijner, several other groups have also shown their support for Ukraine. Other artists are canceling or postponing shows in Russia in response.
