I am raising money to purchase PPE (personal protective equipment, in the form of N95 masks, goggles, face shields and gloves) for hospitals across the country.
The first three shipments have been delivered. I need your help to secure then next ones.
My brother Isaac is an ER doctor at Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn, NY. I am a handbag designer based on Miami, FL. He is on the frontline, risking his life every day fighting COVID-19. He doesn’t have access to the PPE (personal protective equipment) he needs. He is not alone - most doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers are being asked to face this pandemic without the tools they need to protect themselves. That’s where we all come in.
As a designer with access to factories around the world, I was able to use my network to secure a factory with 2,000,000 pieces of the protective gear we need in stock and ready to ship. It is government-approved, and hospitals around the country have already agreed to accept it.
I’ve put my business on hold and I’m devoting myself 100% to this cause. 100% of proceeds go towards securing and distributing the PPE to hospitals around the country.
The time to act is now: for Isaac, for all the healthcare providers, and ultimately, for ourselves. You may not be able to leave your house, but you can make a difference.
Every $10 secures one set of protective gear, which includes an N95 mask, a face shield, goggles and gloves. This cost per set goes down the larger the order we place.
Please donate and share.
UPDATE: We are partnering with Direct Relief to help with acquiring and distribution at scale. https://www.directrelief.org
And additionally we are working with a group of behind the scenes individuals who are working tirelessly to get masks into the hands of doctors in NY quickly
