Restream is co-headquartered in Austin, Texas, and Kyiv, Ukraine. A third of our team is from Ukraine.
At Restream, we stand in solidarity with Ukraine. For this reason, we’ve donated $100,000 to Come Back Alive Foundation Ukraine. Russia’s full-scale military invasion of Ukraine has raged for two years now and it’s still not over. Every donation can still make a difference. We compiled this list of local and global organizations working on the ground to support wounded people, civil and armed forces, refugees, animals and all victims of this war. We kindly encourage you to contribute in any way you can.
