Face Shield Fund - Help Vidant Fight COVID-19

Healthcare workers are on the front lines of the COVID-19 Pandemic, and they are facing a massive shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Our small business, Simple & Sentimental, typically creates personalized gifts, but we are stepping up and using our resources to create face shields for healthcare workers at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, North Carolina. We are also sending donations to hospitals around the country, please continue reading to learn how you can send our face shields to your local hospital!

The primary hospital we are donating to, Vidant, serves 29 counties in Eastern North Carolina. They are asking for donations of face shields and other PPE to protect nurses, doctors, and other vital healthcare personnel working to take care of COVID-19 patients. Because Vidant serves so many counties, they are also a distributor to other hospitals and medical facilities. Any donations we take to Vidant are sent to the area with the most need.

We estimate our cost of creating a face shield is $8 per shield, so for every $8 donation we receive, we are making and donating 1 face shield to Vidant Medical Center.   If you donate more than $100, we can ship the face shields produced by your donation to the hospital of your choosing (must be in the continental United States).  If you donate $100 or more, we will message you via GoFundMe to see which hospital you would like them to be sent to. Please have their shipping address ready :) All other donations will be sent to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.

We are able to produce up to 400 face shields per day, and we would love to fulfill Vidant's and Eastern NC's growing need of PPE. Below is a photo of what our face shields look like! We make them in our office in Greenville out of plastic.
