We are sending the pizza's from:
About $15 American dollars
They do one size: huge. It may make you laugh that their website translates as "Huge! American! For you!". We like these people.
Nope. There's a war on. Let's all be happy to just get pizza across town during war time.
Mark Bernstein saw this — pizza delivery to the Ukraine — emerge, organically from the war. He was tired of sitting on his hands, thinking that there was nothing he could do to help. So the answer to the question What can one person do ?
They can send pizza !!!
Nope! This isn't charity -- it is simply helping out. There is no 501(3)(c), no formal effort, etc. This is just "kick in some $$$ and we'll send an order to a Ukraine pizza shop and have them deliver it".
Not at all. The link to the pizza place is here (and there are certainly others of course; Google is your friend).
Mark Bernstein of Eastgate Systems put this idea on Facebook on 4/16. I, Scott Johnson, found it (Mark is one of my oldest professional friends) and I started on the website on 4/17. And it went live on 4/18.
No real reason save that AWS defaults to .com not .org and the domain was registered in a hurry.
Ottantotto does small pizzas — like ~8" vs Daddy’s 10". For simplicity, we report large pizza equivalents (LPEs) which are 1 Daddys or 2 Ottantottos. Yes, indeed, this is tech nerd based charity at work.
