Continued COVID-19 outbreaks, alongside new virus mutations with the rising number of COVID-19 cases, show that children and educators remain vulnerable to COVID-19, especially while remaining in close contact quarters, such as classrooms.

There are growing concerns about teachers’ safety at schools during COVID-19. Many teachers have decided to resign rather than make the difficult decision to continue teaching daily in unsafe learning environments.

 
We share that concern.
 
We are on a mission to “Help Keep Teachers Safe During COVID-19.” This campaign allows the public to sponsor a teacher or classroom with UVC disinfection technology, specifically air purifiers, that teachers can utilize while teaching children at schools.
 
What is UVC?
Germicidal UVC light is measured in wavelengths, with the UVC wavelength within the range of 100 to 280 nanometer (nm) emitting highly effective sterilization power. This inactivates bacteria and viruses by breaking down the DNA and RNA, thereby effectively destroying them. Over decades, UVC has been proven as the most effective way to eliminate viruses and pathogens.
 
What are you sponsoring?
Respiray is a wearable UVC air purifier that eliminates over 99% of viruses and bacteria with UVC technology. Respiray was developed, designed and engineered mainly for teachers and it is used in hundreds of schools and universities in Europe.

When teachers use face masks in schools, the quality of education suffers. Muffled sound, headaches due to restricted breathing or foggy glasses make teaching a challenge, and on top of that children don’t hear the teachers clearly and see their emotions (critical for younger children and when learning languages).

It is the most reliable and efficient wearable air purifier on the market. Respiray wearable air purifier is an added barrier against all airborne viruses (whether it is seasonal flu or Delta/Omicron SARS-CoV-2) The effectiveness and safety of the device have been independently tested by laboratories in Europe and the world’s leading testing company SGS (more about tests and research can be found here ). The Respiray units are manufactured in Europe with the highest standards.

Teachers play a crucial role in children's development and their safety is paramount. This is why we have partnered with Respiray to kick off a massive effort to get wearable units to teachers with the public’s help. We will start processing shipping once we hit enough to get 200 units to randomly selected and verified teachers.

Teachers
We are happy to invite teachers who are currently teaching in a school or college to register their details. To receive a Respiray unit, you must agree to our terms and conditions as well as a video call verification process where we will confirm your identity and teaching credentials.
 
  • Only Verified Teachers will be randomly selected to receive a Respiray unit.
  • To receive a Respiray unit, you must register and get validated by our team. Verification will be done via a 5-10 min video conference. Please ensure you have your ID & Teacher Credentials ready. Verification will begin on February 1st 2022 and close on March 1st 2022.
  • Shipping to validated and randomly selected teachers will begin on the 16th of March 2022. We will endeavour to complete this round of shipping by July 2022.
 
Donors
Thank you for supporting our campaign. Our goal is to distribute 1000 units to 1000 teachers globally. The funds raised will be used to purchase the units at our distributor price, hire a verification team and pay for the shipping of the Respiray units to recipients. Corporate donors are welcome and will receive a donation certificate. We will also have a donor wall on our website should you want your company logo to be displayed as well as mentions across social media.
 
Our mission is to close the hygiene gap by providing access to simple, innovative, convenient disinfecting technology powered by UVC.
