New York, NY - Fluent Inc. (NASDAQ: FLNT), a leading performance marketing company, has donated $50,000 to the nonprofit UkraineNow to help people fleeing the Russian war. The donation is a result of Fluent’s 10th Annual Charity Golf Outing fundraising initiative. UkraineNow will use the gift to help provide safety, protection, and assistance to Ukrainian refugees whose homes and towns were destroyed by Russian weapons.
“We are deeply grateful to Fluent, Inc. for believing in the Ukrainians who are fighting and dying to maintain their own government and rights,” says Artur Kiulian, founder of UkraineNow.org.
“The company’s incredible donation will help us provide basic needs like food, water, shelter, and medicine to refugees whose lives have been torn apart and many of their family members and friends killed. Our goal is to help them survive this conflict and eventually return home to rebuild.”
Volunteers with UkraineNow have helped 20,000 refugees since Russia launched a military offensive on February 24, 2022. 10,000 civilians have been killed. More than ten million Ukrainians, or one-third of the population, have been displaced, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. It is the largest refugee crisis in the world today.
Fluent teamed up with digital marketing leaders to help support the humanitarian crisis by holding its annual charity golf outing at Clearview Park Golf Course in Bayside, New York on May 23, 2022. More than 110 people and 18 company sponsors participated. It was the first charity golf event for Fluent since the pandemic.
Utilizing its first-party data solution, Fluent also ran a pro-bono donor activation campaign, driving engaged supporters who donated their time and money to aid the efforts of UkraineNow.org.
“Thank you to all the sponsors, donors, and attendees of this year’s Fluent Charity Golf Outing, which historically has supported charitable efforts across a variety of causes, both locally and globally,” said Matthew Conlin, Fluent’s Chief Customer Officer, and Co-Founder. “We are proud to bring together our industry partners to support the efforts of UkraineNow to urgently help the people of Ukraine during an unfathomable war.”
Over the past decade, Fluent's philanthropic initiatives have raised more than one million dollars to support people in need. Fluent’s ongoing charitable efforts include employee donation matching, Fluent Dream Grants, volunteer service initiatives, and events. Previous beneficiaries include the Sheltering Arms, Habitat for Humanity, Little Flower and the Police Athletic League.
Ukrainians have now been battling Russia for five months which means there’s an ongoing need for donations to help refugees. You can make a contribution at www.UkraineNow.org. The charity is a 501c3.
UkraineNow.org is a global initiative based in Los Angeles. The 501©3 nonprofit was created within hours of the Russian invasion on February 24th, 2022 to mobilize volunteers worldwide to help evacuate Ukrainian children, the elderly, and those with disabilities from the war zone. Today, UkraineNow has more than 2,000 volunteers.
The Ukrainian Ambassador to Mexico Oksana Dramaretska endorsed UkraineNow in April, 2022 as an agent of information and education about the crisis. California State Senator Josh Newman (D-29) supported UkraineNow’s fundraising efforts with a Certificate of Recognition on April 30, 2022.
