Eat. Bake. Protest.

Eat. Bake. Protest.
"Love will win out."

* Originally published in cherta.media

Nastya owns a small home-based business. She bakes cakes to order. In the past year, her baking has allowed her to raise R349,000 for charity, almost $5000, helping dozens of organizations while sharing with thousands of subscribers what is actually happening in Ukraine.

In an interview with the Russian journal Cherta (translated and published here with permission), Nastya explained how she organized her fundraising, turned baking into a form of protest, and why she has chosen to stay in Russia.
