Making Sanitizer to fight COVID-19

My name is Casey Newman and I am the Head Distiller at Dry Diggings Distillery in El Dorado Hills, CA.  We are raising money in order to continue our production of hand sanitizer and surface cleaner for the heros who need it!  Everything is donated! So far we have produced and donated hand sanitizer and cleaner to 10+ high risk organizations.

We are not donating this to the public instead we are donating to organizations such as hospitals, police and first responders who are on the front lines against this deadly virus. 

Right now the demand that is needed is more than we can afford to produce and donate.  We are a small family owned business and do not have deep cash reserves in order to buy the raw materials needed to produce these critical supplies.

Every penny that is donated to us will go towards buying high proof alcohol, glycerin, isopropyl alcohol, hydrogen peroxide and the containers.  We will produce as much as possible and plan to ramp up production over the coming weeks.

It costs about $1.50 in raw materials to produce a 4 oz bottles of sanitizer.  

$150 - 100 bottles 
$1,500 - 1,000 bottles
$15,000 - 10,000 bottles

We need to get this money raised as soon as possible so we can get it to the brave men and women who are on the front lines fighting this virus!
