To meet new Giraffe Number 5, we're taking you to Ukraine, where there's more going on besides the war-no-war with Russia. There's also a huge drive for a new and just Ukrainian government. Here's a brave leader of that drive.

As long as there are Giraffes, there's hope.

This is Hanna Hopko. She braved snipers' bullets in Kiev during a citizens' uprising that brought down a corrupt government there. Now she's leading a rapidly growing citizens' movement that's doing more than rising up and demanding change--they're writing new legislation that makes government open, just and democratic, then pressing legislators to pass these new laws. Her car's been destroyed and her life threatened but Hopko has led her group to the passing of ten of the laws they've drafted. She's pushing now for even more. We're betting she'll do it.
