An image recently shared around social media of empty strollers on a Polish rail border crossing has inspired a mountain of donations for Ukrainian refugees.

Now at Przemyśl Station, women, children, and infants fleeing the war are being greeted by mountains of clothes, stuffed animals, strollers, diapers, and more after they step off the train.

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    There are buses and minivans driving from Spain to the Polish/Ukraine border picking up refugees and bringing them back to Spain where people have opened their homes for them. Also lots of fund raisers. There is much kindness around at times of need.

    I saw a similar report on the BBC. The Polish authorities and UNICEF are actually asking people to stop donating buggies and clothes now, as they have more than they need, and will have to dispose of so many donations. It’s good that they got too much, instead of not enough.
    Best wishes, Pete.
