Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles and Ellie Goulding are among the stars who have donated items to a raffle raising money for Ukraine organised by the World Health Organisation. Fans can win donated one-off personal items in addition to concert tickets, as well as merch sold under the foundation’s Human Kind brand.

Examples of items available to win are a signed Styles vinyl LP, a tour brochure and signed T-shirt from Sheeran, and a signed merchandise bundle from Goulding. Swedish House Mafia and Annie Lennox also have items in the raffle, along with two VIP tickets to Coachella 2023. Raffle tickets will sell at just $10, and the WHO Foundation pledges to put all proceeds toward supporting Ukraine’s health care system.

A message on the WHO’s Human Kind website states: “Amidst the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, more than 17 million people urgently need their health and wellbeing to be protected.

“Be Human Kind. Donate today.

“Celebrities and brands around the world have donated exclusive items and experiences you could own. For as little as £5 or $10, make a donation to be in with a chance to win.

“The Human Kind store sells a collection of merchandise inspired by Ukraine. All profits go to supporting the health and wellbeing of those affected by the war.

“Wear your new pieces with pride to show solidarity for Ukraine. Share pictures and tell your friends about the unique celebrity prizes using #HumanKind.”

The announcement of the Human Kind store marks seven months since the beginning of the war in Ukraine on 24 Feb. Ed Sheeran has shown consistent support for the people of Ukraine throughout the conflict. Sheeran teamed up with Ukrainian band Antytila to release a remix of his single 2step. edThe track’s accompanying music video focuses on scenes of war and the bandmates’ experiences after the invasion was announced.
