PROJECT PPE

Our healthcare workers are currently not properly equipped and protected to handle the the overload of patients in hospitals and clinics, currently and projected for the near future.  Their exposure to the COVID-19 virus puts not only themselves but their loved ones, their co-workers and other patients at further risk. 

I am the designer of SVNR, a jewelry and clothing line with connections to reputable factories overseas.  I come from a family with a medical background who are determined to help anyway we can.  My mom, a practicing dentist, is working directly with the factories on logistics to vet, price and source protective gear.  My dad, a retired ER doctor diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, is looking to renew his license to volunteer in hospitals in need.  My brother, an MIT engineer, is currently working on a prototype DIY ventilator. 

Please help us raise the funds to support and protect those that are fighting to save lives.   

We have already ordered 1000 KN95 masks and they are on the way.  To help our doctors and nurses continue to treat patients effectively, we need to raise funds for more protective gear to distribute across the country via this intake form: bit.ly/nycpperequest  

We are working with a group who is ordering surgical grade N95 masks at city and state level from a NIOSH CDC and FDA approved factory. 

100% of the money raised will go towards the most needed PPE (Personal Protective Equipment, including masks, gowns, goggles, and shields).  We will continue the campaign as long as it is still needed, but we will place orders every week, using the funds raised each week.

*HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS* If you are in need of PPE, please fill out this request form: bit.ly/nycpperequest by Sunday, 3/29 at 11pm EST. 

Thank you.
