There is a nightingale singing,
He sings to gather everyone from his family
Like everyone with breath in their body I am watching the situation in Ukraine, asking myself what I can do. Well, It's not much but I can do this. Here is a Nightingale. In Ukrainian folklore, this bird is a symbol of family, of home and garden, of the arrival of spring and of hope. It also represents talented humble people who sing in the shadows. I can't think of anything more appropriate.
It is in an unlimited run in the hope that I will make lots of money to send to Ukraine. To begin with, all proceeds will go to charities supporting Ukrainian families.

The Nightingale is important to all slavic cultures including Russian, which seems all the more poignant to me.
