Tomáš the Tank

Czechland has provided Ukraine with about 4 billion Kč ($186.5 million) in military arms and equipment.  There's also the satirical annexation of Královec

Now Czechia is the first country in the world to crowdfund a tank.  The Czech project, Derek pro Putina (A Gift for Putin), collects donations to purchase weapons and supplies for the Ukrainian army.  Donations of 33 million Kč (+$1.5 million) from 11.288 people purchased a T-72 tank and sent it to Ukraine.  Ukrainian soldiers are familiar with the T-72.

While Tomáš the Tank was funded, now there's a need for ammunition.  There are also other open projects like such as providing drones or medical supplies.  The website to donate is and it's available in both Czech and English.

I even found a short commercial on YouTube demonstrating how easy it is to donate.
