People in Ireland have donated over €1.5 million to GoFundMe campaigns supporting Ukraine, with figures from GoFundMe showing that over 18,000 donations have been made to over 100 campaigns.

Tim Cadogan, CEO of GoFundMe said: “The response from people across Ireland and around the world to support the people of Ukraine has been extraordinary.

GoFundMe’s mission is to help people help each other and that’s why we’re working around the clock to ensure funds get safely, securely and quickly to where they are needed as people step up to help.”
