What problem are you solving?

As the community spread of coronavirus impacts the entire country, the rate of infection in the State of Pennsylvania is increasing at an alarming rate. Pennsylvania continues to set new single-day records for new cases of COVID-19, and according to Governor Tom Wolf, the state has yet to reach its peak. Governor Wolf is actively implementing measures to flatten the curve with the goal of avoiding a surge of seriously ill patients that would ultimately overwhelm the health care system. In spite of rigorous mitigation efforts, Pennsylvania hospital workers say they are in dire need of masks!

How is this campaign helping? 

The Keep Pennsylvania Safe campaign is a collaborative effort between WishU, an innovative social giving platform, and the State of Pennsylvania.  WishU and the Office of the Governor will source and distribute masks for healthcare workers in the State of Pennsylvania who are caring for COVID-19 infected patients as well as patients who are critically ill from other life-threatening diseases, including cancer.  WishU intends to join forces with other states, including New Jersy, New York, and Connecticut, to help protect healthcare workers who are dealing with hospital surges. We currently have access to 10 million certified N95 masks that are designed to support healthcare workers in hospitals, doctor’s offices and government agencies. See Table 1 below.

Our goal is to provide one million protective masks to the State of Pennsylvania! With your help, we believe we can accomplish this within a few weeks.

What is the call to action?

With every $20 donation, we will gift you one surgical mask and distribute six (6) N95 masks to a Pennslyvania hospital or first responder organization directly involved in supporting COVID-19 infected patients!

Once we receive your donation, an email notification will be sent with instructions on how to get the mask(s) delivered to your home. (If you are NOT in need a mask, we will ensure that your  mask(s) are donated to families in need). If you are a Pennsylvania resident and are unable to make a donation at this time, but are in need of masks, please fill out the FORM so you can be added to the Mask Grant List.

How will funds be used?

Funds will be used to purchase surgical and N95 masks as per Table 1 below. The number of masks purchased will depend upon the number of donations raised.
