A pillow with the Ukrainian president – level 1

24-03-2022 15:00

Many people like the Ukrainian president. He is a very brave man. Some people think that he is handsome. A Czech designer has an interesting idea. He makes a pillow with the picture of the president. It is a joke.

Suddenly, many people want the pillow. The designer sells more than 2,000 pillows. He gives all the money to a charity. The charity gives the money to people who leave Ukraine because of the war. The man will make more pillows.

The Czech Republic sends millions of dollars to Ukraine. 270,000 Ukrainians already come to the Czech Republic.

Difficult words: brave (someone who is not afraid of anything), pillow (a soft bag which people put under their head when they sleep), charity (an organization which raises money for people who need it).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
