PPE Masks for Front Line Healthcare Providers

Thanks to our time in international supply chains, we  (Melanie DiSalvo  and Elizabeth Grojean) have access to manufacturers of face masks at a large scale and can quickly import them to the United States. 

We are raising money to be able to donate as many masks as possible to hospitals being overwhelmed by patients with COVID19.

Donations will be 100% passthrough to import masks at cost from the manufacturers with no markups. We're working directly with health care providers in the New York City area to donate these items. 

The governor of New York has called on the public to contribute personal protective equipment (PPE) including masks to healthcare workers, and will need millions of masks before domestic manufacturing comes on line. New Yorkers are even being called on to sew them at home with old scrap fabric to provide to medical care professionals during the peak of the outbreak.

Our suppliers can provide tens of thousands of KN95 masks at a cost of $1.40 each. Governor Cuomo has gone on air stating that the healthcare systems are paying many times this price because they're desperate for supply.  Please help us bring in as many masks as possible at cost to protect our doctors, nurses, and medical professionals on the front lines.

The CDC lists KN95 masks as a suitable alternative  when N95s are not available.
