Connecting People with People in a Time of Crisis
Through the power of 3D printing, you can send a personalized message of appreciation, encouragement, and hope on a protective face shield to people on the front line of our fight against the Coronavirus. Our face shield is hand-crafted from high-quality, crystal-clear polymer attached to a 3D printed FDA-approved visor design being used by thousands throughout our country. Our heavy-duty face shield has been designed for easy sanitizing and re-use.
Your message will be 3D printed on the visor.
Through your personalized message, you can show your appreciation to those who are selflessly working to meet the critical needs of our community. For each $25 tax-deductible qualified contribution, we will send four (4) of your personalized face shields to community and medical users. The same message will be placed on all four (4) shields.
You can identify users in your community who need these shields (limit one organization per donation). Additionally, we will email you a picture of your personalized face shield along with name of the recipient organization which received them.
Here’s how you can participate:
> Individual: Make a contribution in increments of $25 and include your message.
> Service project: Your school, service organization, community group, company, charitable or religious organization can collectively support a medical facility or essential business in your community, rallying with your personalized message. You can request that the shields be sent directly to your organization or school so that you can include letters of appreciation, pictures, drawings, and creative ideas to say thanks.
> Company: Provide face shields to your workers with a message of appreciation.
> Friends & Family: Create a messaged face shield that you would like to send to your friends and family who are working in critical needs areas.
> Anonymous: We will create a message of thanks and send to users who have contacted us.
Here are the Next Steps:
> Donation amount in increments of $25 for four (4) shields.
> Message can be 38 characters (including spaces). AMI reserves the right to reject any messages deemed inappropriate.
> Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your 38 character message, to receive a picture of your visor and/or if you have a preferred recipient organization ASAP! Time is of the essence; we want to put your donation in service immediately.
IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU SEND EMAIL OR WE WON'T RECEIVE YOUR NAME, MESSAGE AND RECIPIENT ORGANIZATION.
