Welcome to Eloma

As the world watched, horrified, as Russia invaded Ukraine, Christiana was driven to take action. As a result, her company started a fundraiser for Ukraine. The response was overwhelming, and they were able to raise a significant amount of money for the relief effort.

Christiana's story is a powerful reminder that taking action for causes you care about can make a difference. It also shows that even in the darkest of times, hope and compassion can still shine through. Tune in to this episode and hear more about Christiana’s success and inspiration.





03:52 – I knew that I couldn’t continue feeling so helpless, that I had to do something.

08:12 – The biggest thing that I wanted to do was raise awareness and raise money for what's happening in Ukraine and I believe people are inherently good.

12:31 – I’ve always wanted to do what I can to give and to help people, that’s kind of what I’ve always wanted to do to change people's lives.

19:42 – The people that have just come out to help and just so selflessly just want to help have been incredible. I say my family but also the strangers in the community.
