Thank you for subscribing to the HumankindNOW newsletter. We haven’t yet thought of a clever name for it, but we are open to your suggestions.
Over the last few weeks we’ve been busy finding, funding and procuring PPE for medical professionals.
On Monday we shipped 200 Lakeland 1414 Coveralls, 88 Protection Packages, and 73 Care Packages. This brings our approximate total shipped to 5,200 N95 masks, 200 coveralls, 208 Care Packages, and 88 Protection Packages to fron tline workers who have requested PPE. We are shipping even more this week, so stay tuned.
If you know a medical professional who needs PPE, please ask them to submit a request for free PPE at HumankindNOW.org.
Care Packages and Protection Packages
Our goal is to provide 10,000 US medical professionals with the PPE they need to do their jobs safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. To meet this goal we are assembling Care and Protection Packages, which aim to do the most good for the most individuals.
Depending upon our supply, our Care Package usually contains 10 surgical masks and two pairs of goggles. Our Protection Package is usually either 50 N95 masks or 50 KN95 masks plus 100 surgical masks. Different packages will become available as our PPE supply changes.
We’ve Reached a Fundraising Milestone
Thanks to the generous support of donors, we’ve reached 20% of our fundraising goal. Every dollar raised goes to funding and donating PPE to front-line health care workers. Help us reach our $500,000 goal by donating at HumankindNOW.org. The more money we raise, the more lives they can save.
Improvements at HumankindNOW
As a fast-to-launch non-profit organization, our volunteers have been working around the clock to send PPE to those who need it. We are learning quickly from our stumbles and making a few changes that we hope will make getting PPE easier for everyone as we ramp up.
We are launching a new website at HumankindNOW.org where medical professionals can order one of our available packages directly from the website.
We are improving our validation process to speed up the time between ordering and shipping. Soon medical professionals can upload a photo of their badge and validate their NPI number while ordering. They can create an account at HumankindNOW.org for even faster ordering and delivery in the future.
