Later this month, dozens of local bands will be coming together for a concert to raise money for Ukrainian refugees.

It's called "Playing for Peace" and it will be on March 31st, starting at 3:00 p.m. and wrapping up at 11:00 p.m. All of the proceeds will go to the humanitarian organization Razom ("razom" is the word that means "together" in Ukrainian). The goal of the event is to raise money for medical supplies and care for the Ukrainian refugees. Of course, you're welcome to donate however much you would like to help out.

Razom started in 2014 in Ukraine's Revolution of Dignity and they are devoted to helping Ukrainians and want to "unlock the potential of Ukraine", according to their website. As the Russian invasion continues, they're involved in helping Ukrainians in multiple ways, not just with medical supplies. They also help civilian defenses, advocacy, communication, evacuation, and more. Their goal is to bring victory and peace to Ukraine.

If you want to donate to Razom through the QC concert, visit the event's Facebook page or you can go to Joy Avenue Media's page. The fundraising goal of the QC concert is $50,000 for Razom and they started the fundraiser early to help reach that goal. If you would like to go ahead and donate, click here.
