As the conflict continues in Ukraine many companies have used their platforms as a means of providing aid to those impacted and in need. To support displaced Ukrainian refugees, women’s golf apparel brand Kinona released a limited-edition capsule collection of three shirts called “Tee It Up for Ukraine.”

Inspired by the vibrant yellow and blue of the Ukrainian flag, which have become symbols around the world of Ukrainian bravery and the fight for democracy, the shirts deliver messages of support and hope in floral, checkered, and monochrome prints. But the collection goes further than that; with each purchase of a shirt, Kinona is donating 100 percent of the proceeds to one of two organizations working to help refugees who have been impacted by the ongoing war and humanitarian crisis: UNICEF (United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund) and Nova Ukraine, a non-profit devoted to getting humanitarian aid in the hands of those who need it.

The company is urging customers to donate directly to the organizations as well. But if you do choose to support the effort through purchasing a Kinona short, know that they are made with a comfortable and performance-enhancing stretchy Italian fabric that also features built-in sun protection, anti-microbial, and moisture-wicking properties.

“At Kinona we not only create golf clothes for women, but are a brand that wants to create a positive impact for the world we live in,” Dianne Celuch, Kinona’s co-founder, said. “We want to support Ukraine and help provide aid to the masses of displaced refugees, many of whom are women and children, and hope that together we can make a difference for the brave people that deserve our support.”
