WE SAW A NEED AND CAME TOGETHER

This project was launched to urgently assist healthcare workers and patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been a truly collaborative, all-volunteer effort comprised of many different people—all generously donating their time in the spirit of cooperation. Like so many efforts that have arisen from this crisis, it is a small example of what humanity can do and be when we are motivated by compassion to work together for a shared goal.
