Hello. I am from Ukraine. I am sure that you know about the situation in my country and about things happening right now. Many people are giving infinitely valuable help to Ukrainian refugees, donating to UAF and simply helping spread the truth. I am sure we have such people also in our community. Ukraine, Ukrainians, and personally I appreciate your help highly. Thank you so heartily.
But now I am here to ask you, the Codeforces community, for help. There is no safe place in Ukraine right now — everywhere you might get killed by a missile strike, so holding the IOI selections is obviously impossible. Our dear friends from Poland decided to help us. They will organise everything for us, but they need money.
Ukrainian competitive programmers are one of the most powerful cp-eps in the World. Our the most recent achievements:
- Baltic Olympiad in Informatics — 4 gold medals, 2 bronze medals
- International Zhautyk Olympiad — 2 gold medals, 3 silver medals, 7 bronze medals
- Romanian Masters of Informatics — 2 gold medals, 1 silver medal, 6 bronze medals
- International Autumn Tournament in Informatics — 2 gold medals, 3 silver medals, 3 bronze medals
- European Girls Olympiad in Informatics — 1 gold medal, 3 silver medals
- European Junior Olympiad in Informatics — 4 silver medals, 4 bronze medals
- International Olympiad in Informatics — 1 gold medal, 2 silver medals
- All-Russian Team Olympiad among Scholars — 1st absolute place, it was the first time when Ukraine team become the winner of this competition and one of a few times that has received a medal.
and so on...
Participation in the IOI is the most wanted dream for every competitive programmer in school times and Russia is trying to break this dream for each of us. But you can help. Everything is in your hands. If everyone, who reads this post, donates about 1 euro, the fundraising will end in 24 hours.
We need your help. Thanks in advance.
upd: if you can't donate, help at least in sharing this post
