N95 PPE Fund for USA Hot Spots and Italy

ProCure Hope, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, is a small team of professionals spanning the US and Asia who are volunteering their time to identify, source, transport and distribute badly needed PPE to front-line workers. With representatives on the ground in both China and the US who speak both English and Mandarin, we are able to evaluate the efficacy of the supply chains and dramatically shorten the time to get masks into the hands of those most in need.

What we aim to achieve: As quickly as possible get N95 and surgical masks and PPE into the hands of under supplied front line healthcare workers in NYC, New England, other "hotspots" in the USA, and Italy.

What we already have: Direct access to supply of N95 masks (USA certified and KN95 China certified) and PPE, as well as people on the ground in China to identify as many more sources of PPE supply as possible and arrange for their air shipment to the USA/Italy. In Italy, a logistics company will handle all receiving and disbursement at no cost.

What we need: Your donations to fund the purchase and shipment of N95 and PPE to the USA/Italy from China, and the disbursement of these goods to local hospitals.

This started as a grassroots effort. We would like to harness the power of gofundme and raise up to USD $150K to equip our front line healthcare heroes with as much protection as possible.

All money raised will go to the purchase of PPE. Any funds leftover will be used to purchase/donate food vouchers to communities hardest hit in the USA and Italy. This entire process will be tracked and shared with those that donate so you will know the impact of your contribution.

Thank you for getting involved! We are all in this together. Stay Strong!
