Here is the latest round of distributed masks to NYP Brooklyn and Mount Sinai at Midwood. 800 masks will be distributed tomorrow as well

More Info

I have access to purchase KN95 masks and surgical masks in bulk from my company's suppliers. My goal is to purchase at least 10,000 for hospitals/doctors in need.

Every dollar counts! The cost per KN95 mask = $2/pc (+FedEx) and cost per surgical mask = $0.5/pc (+FedEx).

I would like to place the order ASAP to be able to deliver them to hospitals by next week!

Thank you for all the recent donations. I was able to purchase an additional 1,000 masks to ship to New York this week (April 13th), in addition to the 2,800 masks that were just received over the weekend.

UPS, FedEx and DHL are experiencing serious shipping delays from China.

Dear donors,
as we are reaching $13,000 thanks to your generosity, I will be placing an order tonight for 2,000 additional N95 masks to ship to NYC in a few days.

We are planning to load the trunk of the car and drop them as soon as they arrive at the different hospital services.
Thanks again and keep sharing!

Update #4

And for the good news: I was able to completely wave all fees by Stripe (credit card processing) so every single dollar will go to purchase masks.

Update #3

So, some updates for everyone interested.

Factory Biofil located next to my main partner in Shenzhen received the visit of the Chinese President Xi to increase their N95 masks production.
They are using production standard GB2626 / EN149, which is now acceptable for the US under the virus outbreak..
They lowering their prices and have surplus of 100,000 masks to sell this week at $2.8/mask for N95 and less than $2 for KN95.

For those who want to understand the difference between masks global standards: https://multimedia.3m.com/mws/media/1791500O/comparison-ffp2-kn95-n95-filtering-facepiece-respirator-classes-tb.pdf

Update #2

Dear donors,
Thank you for your generous contributions.

While the first batch of masks is on its way to NYC, I will need to wait for more contributions for the second batch as I have to meet minimum quantity to order. And we are not there yet...

I want to reassure everyone that I am not buying these masks remotely through shady distributors.
My long-term partners in China (Guangdong province) are the ones actually calling the factories to ask for stock, sending workers onsite to wait for production to be ready, picking up the masks, checking that they are authentic and shipping them through different FedEx accounts to NYC to avoid getting stuck at China customs.

Please keep sharing with friends and families. NYC hospitals are in a terrible situation with no mask for doctors, patients and nurses.

Thank you!
