During these tough times, many have decided to join the fight against the coronavirus, primarily through the making of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). However, we realize that not everyone has access to the same resources, so we created PRINT4OURLIVES, the first comprehensive program that allows anyone to join the fight against COVID-19! Our program provides users with three options:
Using our custom STL. file, users can print face shields to donate to hospitals. Our design, based off of feedback from clinics and hospitals, is the ultimate compromise between user comfort, durability, and print speed. Furthermore, we provide detailed instructions (including links to supplies) to assemble the masks!
If a user does not have a 3D printer, they can choose to make a donation to help fight COVID-19. The donations go directly to the World Health Organization.
A user can also choose to leave an encouraging message for the frontline medical staff. These messages are formatted, printed, and delivered to hospitals all around the country along with the face shield shipments. This is a super easy way for anyone to contribute to the cause!
We have amassed over 7500 site visits, 250 STL file downloads, and 100 monetary donations at the time of writing. Combining the efforts of individuals around the world, our program has donated over 2000 pieces of PPE to care centers, clinics, and hospitals in need! Participating in any of these opportunities will have a direct and profound impact on your own community; a few minutes of your time can save countless lives!
