The conflict in Ukraine is referred to by many on social media as a Crowd Funded War. Mark J. Lindquist is an American air force veteran who now lives in Kyiv Ukraine and exemplifies this. He is one of numerous independent and self-funded volunteers who run small, nimble organizations and cooperate in a network to give life-saving assistance to Ukrainian civilians and soldiers. They go to places near the front and do what large nonprofit organizations cannot. These small volunteer groups have become a vital life-saving part of the Ukrainian defense struggle.
Mark delivers clothes, equipment, and other life-saving necessities to the frontlines in the Donbas Region. He is a fundraiser for Ukrainian volunteer groups with his tax-exempt nonprofit organization called The A-Team. He is also a musician, entertainer, and social media influencer and during this conversation, he describes how he has used those talents towards moments of relief from war, for Ukrainians.
This program is the second of two interviews with Mark.
