Sergii Kryvoblotsky, head of R&D at MacPaw, is raffling off a Worldwide Developers Conference 2019 pin to raise money for Ukrainian aid.
The money raised will go to the MacPaw Development Fund to provide Ukrainian defenders with medicine and protective equipment.
Help MacPaw donate to Ukrainian aid
MacPaw operates primarily from Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. Although the city beat off earlier Russian attacks, President Vladimir Putin’s forces are still seeking to overthrow the country. The war continues primarily in the east of Ukraine.
Kryvoblotsky wants to help, and he’s using his WWDC19 pin to raise money.
“Lots of UKR engineers didn’t visit #WWDC2022. Thrown by russia’s war to the past, it’s hard to think technology and future,” said Kryvoblotsky on Twitter. “My WWDC2019 pin is about peaceful times. I want to raise some money for charity and give this #PinToWin to one of Ukraine’s supporters.”
