Having reached a crisis point in the United States and around the world, hospitals, doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals and frontline organizations are facing shortages in mission-critical personal protective equiment (PPE) e.g. masks, face shields during the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
As states, cities and towns lift shelter in place orders and begin to re-open against the advice of public health professionals, the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise and PPE shortages remain across the globe and more acutely in under funded, impoverished and vulnerable communities.
This Studio Program aims to protect all humans equally in order to decrease the number of human deaths from COVID-19.
Learn More About The Problem:
Protect 100 million people with well designed sustainable, reusable, certified personal protection equipment (PPE) that reduces the spread of COVID-19, decreases PPE pollution on land and oceans, and increases the availability of PPE to healthcare professionals treating patients across the globe.
All proceeds from donations ensures that mask making equipment, materials and technology platforms remain open-source, sustainable, secure and private by design.
Your cash donations secure the fair and equal compensation for research & design apprentices working on this studio program.
Social Giving Made Simple: When anyone purchases 1 mask, we donate 2 units of PPE to vulnerable communities and underfunded orgranizations.
