Easton teen starts GoFundMe for Ukrainian refugees

A 14-year-old Easton girl who has been watching the developments in Ukraine and talking with her grandmother about has taken steps to help refugees.
Annie Gnidula says her 79-year-old grandmother Kristina lives in Poland and grew up during World War II.
"All this like trauma I think is coming back and I think when I was talking to her it was just like really hard to listen to her having to talk about it and she was really heartbroken about it," said Gnidula.
So Gnidula started a GoFundMe page to raise money for the refugees. She's approaching $10,000.
"Our initial goal was $5,000 and we exceeded that in like 48 hours, which is insane," Gnidula said.

Gnidula says the refugees need money and she is working with a Polish newspaper to make sure the refugee camps get the funds. She says a $100 donation helps supply a month's worth of food to a Ukrainian refugee family.
Gnidula says she plans on keeping the GoFundMe going but does want to get those funds over to the people who need it as soon as possible.
She is a freshman at the Hopkins School in New Haven.
