Hawaii and Alaska are USA, and we need to help them now. They are cut off from supplies from *all* the major USA made N95 manufacturers. Mask companies will not ship to Hawaii or Alaska due to excessive shipping costs. It is a terrible situation. We found a shipping partner who works with us for quick delivery at lowest possible price. But we need your help.
I am the founder of Digijaks Group. Since February 2020 we have been directly involved in securing bulk amounts of PPE going to medical first responders in dozens of US States, and Native tribes in both the US and Canada, as well as helping homeless shelters and other groups. Here is a little bit of the history as publicly documented. https://twitter.com/IdeaGov/status/1312812192920600576?s=20 Also, as well as here is a brief mention in Buzzfeed from March. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/kenbensinger/everyone-is-looking-for-coronavirus-protective-masks-some
Can you please help? This is an extremely urgent request!! We have been working with FEMA, several States, and Cities, as a registered emergency Covid-19 responder. We work with Dentists, Doctors, nursing homes and medical facilities in dozens of States to help them secure the overall PPE they need to fight the #Coronavirus pandemic. Each full shipment (approx 2000 masks or 12 boxes) averages about $650 by air from the US West Coast to Alaska/Hawaii for the bulk size shipments we need to send.
We need to raise $29500 immediately to send tens of thousands of certified N95 Masks to Hawaii and Alaska. These either are being manufactured or shipped to us now.
No USA manufacturer of N95s masks will ship to Alaska or Hawaii.
This is not about the specific mask company, but about the critical need of Doctors and Dentists in Hawaii and Alaska for certified USA made N95 face masks. It is a life and death situation. FEMA stopped paying for PPE in September. The US Government is not supporting this need, and it has fallen to a group like ours to create a solution.
There are over 1000 Dentists in Hawaii alone and over 1700 Doctors in Alaska. The Doctors and Dentists in Hawaii and Alaska need N95s as their first line of defense against the Coronavirus.
Because the companies and governments have failed these two States, we need to help them as soon as possible.
Both States are in dire need of PPE, especially US made N95 masks.
These shipments are lifelines of critical defenses for medical first responders.
We truly are all in this together.
