Sitting here sipping an Evers Ale by the Minocqua Brewin Company

and every now and then glancing at the Bucks score. With everything such a mess I feel guilty, but I really need a break. It is in the upper 60's, the husband is grilling, perfect Wisconsin spring weather. Tomorrow back down to the 40's.

The can says 5% of all our profits go to the Minocqua Brewing Company superpac, or "dark money meant for good". Good beer and a good cause.

Buy this not that based on Ukraine.

I know there are sources that point out which companies are still doing business with Russia. One of them had Carter's kids clothes listed as still doing business with Russia. As the grandmother of a wonderful little girl who will be 2 in June I have in the past gotten her clothes from Carter. I am pretty much homebound, health and mobility makes going out difficult. I also have limited funds. I did read that gap and old navy do not deal with Russia. So I will be doing my shopping with them.

So many companies they show as still in Russia are companies I have never heard of. Perhaps someone has other practical advice for other purchases that can be made or avoided based on their stance on Russia.

So not just who to avoid, but alternatives with who to support.
