Hello HumankindNOW friend!
We hope this newsletter finds you happy and healthy. We’re fine. Busy but fine. Thanks for asking. 🙂
The HumankindNOW volunteer team continues to work at full speed to ship PPE supplies, improve our processes and make it easier for front line workers to request PPE.
As of Wednesday April 29th, we have shipped approximately 284 PPE Protection Packages and 242 PPE Care Packages. This brings our approximate total shipped to 26,100 N95 masks, 7,100 surgical and KN95 masks, 1000 surgical gowns and 482 goggles to cover the PPE needs of about 807 front line workers. We are shipping more every Tuesday and Thursday, so stay tuned.
If you know any medical professionals who need PPE, please encourage them to submit a request for free supplies at HumankindNOW.org.
Check Out Our Fancy New Website
We are extremely happy to introduce a new and improved website at HumankindNOW.org. It’s more polished, that’s for sure, but the biggest improvement is that front line workers can now order PPE packages directly from this website. The instant checkout speeds up ordering, the formatted shipping list expedites delivery, and the simplified verification process quickens the validation that PPE is being sent to front line workers in need. In addition, the re-design allows us to scale up quickly, getting PPE to those who request it faster and more efficiently. Please check out our new website and let your first line responders know we are taking orders for those in need.
Many thanks to Paul Owen of Searchleap for designing and developing a website that’s perfectly suited for HumankindNOW.
Ensuring We Send to Front Line Workers
To ensure that the PPE we are donating is reaching front line workers, we ask all requesters to either enter their NPI number or upload a photo of their work badge, professional identification, or medical diploma. Our verification team then gets to work verifying each customer’s information and profession. On occasion we also contact customers by email or phone for more information. Once a front line worker has been verified, their PPE order is ready to ship.

The Impact Of Your Donations and HumankindNow
We’ve been brought to tears by the heartfelt thank you notes sent by recipients of our PPE packages. Fair warning: you might want to break out the tissues before reading these inspirational responses.
Please know that these front line workers are overwhelmed by your generosity. Thank you to the HumankindNOW donors and volunteers for getting PPE into the hands of those who need it most.
