A lot of businesses may want to make an impact, but do not not know how. If a business has fabric, they can help. If a business has plastic, they can help. If they have industrial sewing machines, they can help. If we all have a piece of the puzzle, how can we bring this together?
My idea is to create a "craigslist" for connecting resources needed to help those on the front-lines fight COVID-19. Materials, machines, as well as blue prints can be shared and swapped to create needed PPE.
Inspired by a group I'm in on Facebook, a group of Etsy users have not only been sharing materials by mail, but have been connecting plans, resources, suppliers and donation centers to help create needed PPE.
Small businesses alone can still make an impact. This can be a way for them to track their donations as well to see some type of financial relief in the future because of their donations.
