We need help to continue helping others.
Three weeks ago we started printing what has become know as "Ear Savers" or "Comfort Straps" to provide to local hospitals in hopes of making things at least a little nicer for the people working the front lines.
We have now donated over 6000 of these to hospitals from Boston to Los Angeles, and the requests keep coming in. While we would love to keep up with the demand, the cost is becoming more than we can foot on our own and would greatly appreciate any donations we can get.
Within the past week we have been asked to begin producing face shields and have arranged for a large delivery of plastic sheeting to use for this purpose. Funds raised through this campaign will go to supplying the teams with the materials needed and pay shipping costs to hospitals around the country.
Any funds raised beyond what is required to offset the costs of the current project will be donated to the three FIRST Robotics teams involved in this effort. These teams are funded through donations and help inspire the countries future engineers, scientists, fabricators, and designers. The energy these teams are putting forth to help in this time of need is amazing and shows what they do works.
Thank you for your consideration. Please stay safe, we want you around tomorrow.
