The Past Year in Ukraine
Join us on the Make It Big Podcast where we open up about our journey over the past year in the Ukraine.
My name is Kristina Pototska, and I'm a Product Manager in BigCommerce's Kyiv office.
A year ago, I endured some serious jet lag after I returned from a conference at our Austin, Texas office in the United States. After only two hours of sleep, the phone woke me up.
It was 5am, and my friend said something like, "Kristina, wake up. The war started. Pick up your stuff. We are leaving Kyiv."
I was so tired that I didn't quite understand my friend. I didn't understand until I heard a huge explosion near my house.
My teammate and Product Designer, Bohdan Hodzenko can relate: "I woke up around 5am from [the] sound of explosions."
Join us and BigCommerce's CEO, Brent Bellm on the Make It Big Podcast where we open up about our journeys over the past year in the Ukraine.

The Stand with Ukraine App
Bohdan Hodzenko and his team created the Stand With Ukraine app. The app can be downloaded from the BigCommerce App Store and allows merchants to add a donate widget to their site with a few simple clicks. Once the widget is installed, merchants can add a personalized message and select from a number of pre-vetted organizations for shoppers to donate to.
