Helping Makers fight covid-19
Update: large quantities of FACE SHIELDS are ready!
Makers Respond is a non-profit NGO formed under RESOLVE as an initiative to rally makers, manufacturers, and markets to support the COVID-19 response. Makers Respond facilitated cross-industry collaboration and partnerships to rapidly design, prototype, test, source materials, and scale to production our first piece of personal protection equipment – our low cost origami face shield.

The VIRUS EXPOSED
A Supply Problem
The COVID-19 Pandemic has created a real crisis for the United State’s Medical & Healthcare workers. One look at the projected number of face shields the US medical industry will use over the course of the next year compared to the amount available in the national emergency stockpile, and it becomes very apparent that we are in dire need of supplies. Realizing that face shields are only one type of critically needed PPE brings the full enormity of the problem into focus.
Thankfully, makers – a robust community of innovators, recognized these needs and have stepped up to fill the gap while traditional manufacturing is catching up. These makers are working tirelessly to solve the problem, and MAKERS RESPOND is here to get them the support that they need in order to do it.
