We are sending free medical supplies to healthcare professionals, firefighters, and police officers in need.
We are 3D printing reusable N95 masks and face shields for doctors, nurses, fire fighters, and police officers—our brave, frontline helpers who currently have a shortage of protective gear.
We are donating surgical masks and gloves to medical teams who need them.
We are recruiting people with 3D printers to help create N95 masks and face shields to join us.
We are shipping masks and face shields to individuals, hospitals and stations who need them.
Use of funds:
100% of the funds raised will be used to purchase materials to make the masks and shields, purchase protective items like surgical masks and gloves, and ship items to those most in need. The 3D masks are made out of hard plastic and come with filters, so they are easy to wipe down and can be reused.
Who we are:
This project was started by 14-year-old Dylan Capshaw. He started 3D printing masks so he could donate them to doctors and nurses. You can learn more about him and the masks from this local news story.
His mom, Dr. Amy Capshaw, owner of Okun Dentistry , and her friend, Lisa Morrow, the CEO of Birdytell , were inspired by his project and wanted to pitch in and use their resources to help get as many masks made and distributed as possible.
Amy ordered a second 3D printer and hopes to recruit other dentists to make additional masks. She's also able to order medical supplies so they can be donated.
Lisa is handling distribution and packaging. Each mask that is sent to an individual will have a card included.
Dylan is making masks and shields. He also created the website, Forthefrontline.org .
How to help:
Donate: All donations raised will go to supplies. We are volunteering our time to make, purchase, and distribute protective gear to those who need it.
Be a Maker: Do you want to help make masks and shields? We are happy to share files on how to make these items if you have a 3D printer. Also, we can recommend printers if you want to purchase one and help us create them. Contact us if you want to be a maker.
Business Partnerships: If you want to partner with us and help make items, donate to purchase items, or help with distribution, please contact us.
Do you know a frontline helper who needs a mask? Let us know and we will do our best to send them one.
We will continue to send updates and photos of our progress.
We hope to inspire others to contribute, so we can keep the brave helpers safe. Thank you for your consideration.
