Well, it is October of 2022, and finally time to make an announcement regarding the COBI Ghost of Kiev Charity donation that we, and you…our customers, made in support of Ukraine.
The charity we chose is a small Polish non-profit organization called “Fundacja Opoka” translated Bedrock Foundation. This organization provides support for Ukraine via providing hand made quilts and other greatly needed supplies. The organization utilizes a network of vetted individuals to make sure the aid is delivered to the actual people in need and not syphoned off by corruption or criminals.
The organization doesn’t have a webpage but you can track the organization’s efforts via the Quilted Twins Blog here. They provide weekly updates on their efforts. Here is a great post from September 27th that shows the scale of the support.
We learned of this organization via a missionary family acquaintance and eventually made our first donation of $2,655.50 in September 9, of 2022. Donating to the organization is rather complicated seeing it is a Polish organization and we took great care to make sure the money was not sent to a front organization.
Eventually, we discovered that the organization could be supported through International Baptist Missions with a simple note on the check for Mike and Becky Peterson for Fundacja pooka and have since confirmed that the donation arrived.
The Petersons have established a church on the outskirts of Warsaw, Poland. Mike also teaches pastors from Ukraine as well as church leaders from numerous restricted access countries.
We believe it is important to be transparent regarding the actual distribution of funds seeing our COBI Ghost of Keiv customers had such a big impact and deserve to know exactly how their purchase is having an impact on Ukraine’s fight for survival.

- On September 9, 2022 we made a donation of 2,655.50 to Fundacja Opoka.
How did we determine how much to donate?
Determining the amount per set was a rather complicated process of calculating the following:
- Cost of the set from COBI
- Cost of shipping
- Cost of Magnets
- Cost of Packing Materials
- Coupons used etc.
