Wild website lets you write messages on Ukrainian bombs to be fired at Russians
A whacky website supporting Ukrainian troops fighting on the front lines against Vladimir Putin’s Russia gives you the chance to sign bombs and weapons.
SignMyRocket.com, a unique approach to military funding, gives people at home the opportunity to contribute to the war effort while also sending their own personal message to Mad Vlad and Co.
Through the website, you can write your own bespoke greeting that will be inscribed “in permanent marker”.

The site says: “You have a chance to send a greeting to orcs with your text written on an artillery shell.
“You will receive a photo of your signed shell or a video of it being fired. Or you can even sign an M777 howitzer.”
The money you donate in exchange for the inscription goes, allegedly in its entirety, towards helping troops on the front line.
Donors are given a wide range of weapons to attach their messages to and you can pay through a number of methods, from PayPal to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.
In a rundown of how it works, the site says: “Soldiers at the front lines will write your message in permanent marker on an artillery shell. All donations will be spent on Support for Ukraine.

“You can ask to write almost any text: – Wish someone a Happy Birthday – Ask for a Date – Instagram – Send greetings to Putin.
“Choose an option: photo of a signed shell, video of firing your shell/drone dropping a signed grenade or even an M777 howitzer!
“Make a donation. SignMyRocket funds are sent directly to a Ukrainian NGO. If you have problems you can contact [email protected].”
You can even get your text written on the side of vehicles and weapons, including an M777 Howitzer or Ukraine’s frontline combat jet, the Su-24.
These things aren’t cheap though. To get an Su-24 marked up with your message it's going to set you back around $30,000 (around £28,110).
The cheapest bit of kit on offer is a 155mm artillery shell which will set you back $200 or more (£187).
For an additional cost, you can even get a video of your messaged-missile being fired off at the enemy – this will get you back another thousand dollars though.
At the time of writing the site has raised some serious cash, claiming to have had $514,000 (£481,000) in donations so far across 2,622 separate orders.
SignMyRocket.com is organised by the CENTER OF ASSISTANCE TO THE ARMY, Veterans and Their Families, a “non-governmental, non-profit organization that has been operating since 2014 and focuses on helping units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Territorial Defense, Volunteer Forces in the struggle for Ukraine".
