Dear HumankindNOW community,
You have probably heard by now that we have reached our goal of protecting 10,000 essential health care workers in the fight against COVID-19. In fact, over the last four months, we have donated more than 450,000 individual pieces of PPE to you and your colleagues on the front lines, and it has been our distinct honor to do so.
To date, we have raised more than $260,000 in cash and $500,000 more in PPE donations. More than $200,000 of that total came from HumankindNOW board members and their friends, family members, and business associates. The remainder was raised via GoFundMe, and many of you have contributed to that campaign as well. Thank you.
As we hit this important milestone, we have been thinking about what’s next for HumankindNOW. We sent a survey to about half of you to better understand your needs going forward. We received an overwhelming number of responses (972) and will be sharing a summary of the results to you in an upcoming newsletter. Among the highlights, we learned that 92% of the respondents would like to receive high quality PPE regularly, 75% feels the need to have access to reliable Covid testing, and about 25% would benefit greatly from access to mental health applications.
To this end we kicked off a new campaign -- HumankindNOW Summer Drive -- to get us going in this new phase. In this campaign, we’re inviting you to become a member of HumankindNOW:
“Kind” Member. Donate any amount you can and we will use your donation to continue to provide high quality PPE to essential healthcare workers in HumankindNOW.
“Kinder” Member: Make a donation of at least $100 dollars, or $10 dollars per month. In appreciation of your contribution, we will provide you:
- Two PPE Care packages guaranteed in the next 12 months (each care package contains a number of N95s and surgical masks)
- Get free access to all premium Mental Health services from WellnessCoach.live
All members and non-members will continue to be able to request PPE packages. Kinder and Kind members will have priority. We’re also exploring more services to make available to you as well the ability to purchase the same high quality PPEs you get with the packages from our website. Stay tuned.
We currently only have several weeks of funding left and need your support more than ever. Please donate through our new campaign page and share with your colleagues, friends and family.
Stay healthy, and stay in touch. We send you much love.
