To date, we have built and donated 26,000 shields. Each shield costs about $3 to make and all labor is being donated.
We choose to donate the shields both because MANY medical institutions needed that and it significantly reduced the time it takes to get them in the hands of medical professionals.
We will finish this project and get these life-saving shields to the heroes that need them no matter what. But if you or someone you know could help that would be great. We are still about $20,000 in the red.

Some of the feedback we have received:
Your face shield has received the best feedback among all others! I just want to let you know that we are very happy with the quality and are grateful to your donation.
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center - Boston
Just wanted to say thanks once again - your shields are absolutely the best! They are being used by ICU nurses and respiratory therapists, and people working the drive-through testing site (where they especially appreciate that those shields are not being blown sideways in a wind!).
St Elizabeth's Medical Center
The shields are an absolute hit! We began issuing one to all the nurses and paramedics. I’m at work today and have been wearing my shield near my +covid patients who are coughing and for the first time, I feel safe and confident. It is extremely comfy, and it doesn’t fog. Game changer!!

My floor was designated the Covid floor, and as scary as it was, we were handed these shields 1 wk in, and I can't tell you what they meant to us! They are life savers! Thank you.
