Ukrainian progressive/metal band Jinjer has launched a campaign to help raise funds to provide aid and support for their home country, offering up two limited-edition t-shirts with 100% of proceeds from the merch items to benefit various charities throughout the country.

Said bassist Eugene Abdukhanov in a statement:

“Thank you all for your concerned messages and prayers sent to us over the last week, we may not answer but we are reading them and they mean the world to us. As you know, there is war raging through the streets and cities of Ukraine right now. Many people have little or no food or water and are very afraid of what tomorrow may bring. Together with Napalm Records, we’re releasing two new T-Shirt designs to raise funds to be donated to various charities throughout Ukraine to help with medical and food supplies, water and so on. If you cannot donate then please share this or any news related to what’s really happening here. Each sale may save somebody’s life in Ukraine. Thank you.”

You can purchase the limited-edition shirts at this link.

The band will keep fans updated about where, specifically, their donations will be spread through social media:

“100% of proceeds earned from the sale of these T-Shirts will be distributed directly to charity organizations in Ukraine. We will update here on social media where and who your donation has helped.”

This development comes a few days after the band issued a video statement about the situation in Ukraine and updated fans about the safety of those band members still in the country:

As a result of the heightening conflict between Russia and Ukraine, Jinjer has been forced to cancel its upcoming North American tour dates, some of which included a high-profile spot on the Knotfest Roadshow bill with Slipknot and a slot at the Aftershock Festival in October.

Best wishes to the members of Jinjer, their family and friends in Ukraine and anybody still in the country being directly (or indirectly) affected by what’s going on.
