In March, Mike Wilson and his wife felt depressed when they saw the news about the Russian invasion of Ukraine. He wanted to do something.
“I just woke up in the morning. I looked at my wife and said I’m leaving. And her thing was, where are you going? And I said I’m going to Ukraine,” Wilson said.
The 71-year-old boarded a flight to Krakow, Poland.
“A light went out, I said I found out what I can do to help. So I went to the store. I found out where the crayons and coloring books were. They said how many do you want? I said , give me anything you want.” have,” Wilson said.
He began distributing hundreds of coloring books at train and bus stations where refugees eagerly awaited to know their next destination. Pictures show smiling children posing with their brand new books.
The gifts brought tears to the eyes of mums and dads who had to rush out of their homes and leave everything behind. So far he has made two trips.
“I still believe that America is the greatest country in the world, and it made me so grateful to be able to do something from my heart to her heart,” Wilson said.
