Every Hero Needs A Mask
Providing life-saving resources to Florida's Emergency Medicine Community
Florida's emergency medicine providers are going to work every day without the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to protect them. This means they may not have access to enough masks, gloves, gowns, face shields, or other items that keep them safe and ensure they will be able to continue to risk their lives another day. Failure is not an option - We need your help to get our loved ones the protection they need to do their jobs and make it home safe!

About This Project:
For the last 6 years, I have had the honor of working for an organization that provides life-saving education, resources, advocacy, and support to front line healthcare providers. It's important that we find ways to give back what they sacrifice for us.
We are not on the front lines and we can’t fight that battle – but we can help them hold the line. There are businesses and community partners with an existing supply of PPE resources that they may not need right now and just don’t know how important these items are to the fight against this virus.
You can help purchase certified PPE items and route these resources to EMTs, paramedics, firefighters, nurses, emergency physicians and others in your area by joining our PPE network and donating to the Every Hero Needs A Mask project.
Every donation helps. Donating $1.00 or more to receive regular updates on our milestones, donors, and donations! Your private donor dashboard tools will help you share your message and allow us to track your impact on our project.
Please, spread the word in your community and help us make a difference for Florida's emergency medicine providers.
Will you join us as a community partner? Specifically, here’s what that means for your organization:
Targeted outreach to key members and partners in your database. Success depends on your outreach by phone calls and emails to introduce the project and request donations through additional awareness and community influence.Participate in the PPE drive. Spread the word, not the virus.
Consider donating to our PPE fund that will be used to purchase certified PPE from a supplier local to Florida.
Here's a sample listing of certified PPE items*:
3ply Disposable Mask - $0.95 each, $47.50/box, $1,900/case
3ply Disposable Medical Mask - $1.29 each, $64.50/box, $2,580/case
KN95 Respirator Mask - $3.75 each
Isolation Gown - $3.99 each, $598.50/box
Medical Face Shield - $9.00
Goggles - $14.00
Sterile Nitrile Gloves - $900/case
*The above pricing reflects current market value and is subject to change daily. Pricing is not inclusive of shipping costs which are approximately $0.10 per piece of PPE.
We need you to get involved by reaching out to EVERYONE you know to raise awareness for this effort.
Remember, the most effective way to protect yourself and our front line providers is to stay home, shelter in place, and practice social-distancing when you must leave for essential needs (groceries, medical care, etc.). If you have been exposed to, diagnosed with, or have symptoms of COVID-19, please follow self-quarantine instructions, avoiding all public places, and contact your doctor before going to the emergency department.
