Charles Wessler
is an Academy Award winning producer known for such films as: “Palmer” with Justin Timberlake, “Green Book” with Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali, “Dumb and Dumber” with Jim Carry and Jeff Daniels, “Something about Mary
with Cameron Diaz and Ben Stiller, and others.

For his brilliant film, “Green Book” - a human story of talent, perseverance, courage, dignity and defiance set during the era of racial segregation in the US - Charles has received an Oscar for Best Picture. This film resonates deeply with our #BeTheLight Mission on the ground in Ukraine, where our team combats aggression, terror and Humanitarian crisis, while facing thousands of personal tragedies daily. We understand what it means to strive, to be defiant in the face of aggression, to be dignified and to persevere. Persevere because our values are above the hatred, the aggression and the malice. We believe that “good” remains “good” outside of time and continuum, and it will always prevail.

Being of Jewish background, Charles Wessler remembers the historical events of the past and the legacy which tyranny leaves behind. His inspiration for taking action is a simple phrase - “Never Again!” As a #BeTheLight Ambassador of Light, Charles Wessler will focus on giving #PowerToUkraine and will aim to #BeTheLight by bringing power and light to Ukraine, literally. Bringing vital energy, heat, light, connection, internet, supplies for the frontlines and life-saving technologies to thousands in need will be Charles’ way of giving #PowerToUkraine and his way to #BeTheLight for many. #BeTheLight truly hopes that others will follow his lead and will help Charles give #PowerToUkraine, or join him in his campaign and #BeTheLight, as his fellow “Ambassador of Light “, helping to spread awareness and deliver aid.

Maryna Marchenko
a woman, a lawyer, an activist protecting women’s rights, and a philanthropist supporting young mothers and maternity needs through her NGO “Lada”
She is a wife and a mother, who like many others, stayed in Ukraine to continue on helping women in need. As an “Ambassador of Light” for the #BeTheLight base, our mission on the ground in Ukraine, Maryna’s mission will be to give #PowerToUkraine and #BeTheLight . Maryana Marchenko intends to do this by empowering young mothers of Ukraine, protecting their rights and needs, and helping them to establish their careers, have psychological support along the way and give them the “Voice”! Maryna is a mother herself, raising a 5-year-old son, Leo, and a 12 -year-old stepdaughter, Aurora. She shares all babysitting and child rearing responsibilities with her husband Serhiy Marchenko, who is an active participant in raising their beautiful family. And that’s how it should be - since motherhood is a shared labor of love. Yet from early on, Maryna has noticed that, while pregnant women and babies are more-less provided for in our society - the young mothers are left to survive on their own, with little support and understanding at the time when they need it most. This became only more acute during the War and Humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, when young mothers were left without their homes, forced to live as refugees, without jobs and without even their husbands by their side, since men are defending their country. Hence, as a #BeTheLight “Ambassador of Light” Maryna would like to devote her time and her Ambassadorial voice - to #BeTheLight for thousands of young mothers of Ukraine, empowering them and helping them to become the base of a Strong Ukraine. That’s going to be her way of giving #PowerToUkraine! Please Contact us!
