Impact Spotlight: The Notepad for Peace Benefitting World Central Kitchen

This February, we launched the Notepad for Peace in response to the invasion of Ukraine and violence and displacement of Ukrainian families. We had worked locally with World Central Kitchen in the past via our District Notepad which supported their efforts through the pandemic, and quickly decided to create a product that would donate to their urgent response in Ukraine.

We selected serene Sky Blue with a dove foil signet for this notepad - chosen for its universal meaning of peace, hope, and guidance. Since its launch, 100% of sales (including monogram fees) have been donated directly to World Central Kitchen.

 

Impact

Since its launch, sales from the Notepad for Peace have resulted in a total donation of $22,431 to World Central Kitchen. Donations are tallied frequently to get money into the hands of WCK as quickly as possible. Thanks to your support, we’ve been able to make a real contribution to their important work, and the support continues through this product which is still available for purchase on our website. So many of you have continued to re-purchase this product as gifts or in multiples, further extending your support—for this we thank you.

Chefs for Ukraine

Curious about how your donation is used? Read more about the work being done in Ukraine and surrounding countries on the World Central Kitchen website, including interviews with their incredible team and videos from the frontline.

  • Much of WCK’s work is carried out and led by Ukrainians—a team now totaling over 4,500 people.
  • This work requires a diverse set of individuals with unique skillsets, including chefs, drivers, warehouse managers, and logistics experts.
  • WCK is providing hot meals, emergency food kits, and clean water across the frontline in Ukraine and in surrounding countries to people fleeing violence.
  • WCK continues to serve 1 million meals each day, bringing 30 million pounds of food to over 5,000 distribution sites.

 

Our ongoing initiative is to work alongside non-profits using our unique skill set to tangibly support a variety of efforts that empower, improve, and transform the world around us. As a paper company with the resources to design and produce a product, we decided to create something that not only supports World Central Kitchen through 100% sales donation, but through awareness. We hope that as you use this notepad, you’ll keep the people of Ukraine front of mind and continue to support World Central Kitchen in their essential work.
