The Air Alert app has officially partnered with UNITED24. American actor Mark Hamill, an ambassador of the fundraising platform, has voiced the English version of the app. In addition, push notifications signalling the end of an air raid now call to make a donation to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The legendary actor behind Luke Skywalker will notify users about five types of danger: missile attacks, artillery shelling, street fighting, radiation and chemical threat. Mark Hamill has also added some of his iconic and inspiring quotes to announcements when the danger is over.
We are eternally grateful to Mark Hamill for continued support to our country.
Not only Mark became the first ambassador of the Army of Drones, the first big celebrity to support the military fundraising for Ukraine, he constantly promotes Ukraine’s interests in numerous interviews, never refuses a chance to talk to the world about our fight for freedom. Only few days ago Hamill announced fundraising for ten Danish Heidrun drones to support Ukrainian defenders, and today we are presenting another project with his participation — an English version of the Air Alert, available for journalists, international missions, and everyone who is currently working in Ukraine. I am sure that many Ukrainians will change the language of the app at least once to hear, “Attention, the street fighting alert is over. May the Force be with you”.Yaroslava Gres, UNITED24 Coordinator
All donations made through the Air Alert app will be transferred via UNITED24 to purchase drones for the Ukrainian army.
This isn’t just an app update to us, but a way to do our part on the information front and an opportunity to help the Ukrainian Armed Forces in keeping up the good fight. Unfortunately, the constant alerts are still the reality for Ukrainians, and we constantly require help from the Western world. We hope that the English version of the app will help us call foreign attention towards the war in Ukraine and motivate everyone to support our defenders. We are grateful to our partners at UNITED24 and the world legend Mark Hamil for their participation and endless work towards our victory.Valentine Hrytsenko, Ajax Systems CMO
