This Project is already in a "proof-of-concept" pilot phase in Portage and Summit County, Ohio.  

Our ultimate longer-term goal is to have our work serve as an open-source blueprint for the other 86 counties in Ohio, with potential expansion to other states and counties with adequate local resources to improve their chance of success.  UPDATE 5/6/20:  Our website is now providing links to LOCAL, 100%-direct-to-the-cause, direct monetary donation pages (critical care hospitals, community foundations, United Way Covid-19 Reponses Funds) throughout the State of Ohio!  

What is the need are you focusing on?

We have established accounts on Twitter (@DuBois_Family), a private Volunteer Group on Facebook, a public Facebook page, 80 new contacts on LinkedIn.

What is the best example of business adaption you’ve seen in response to COVID-19? (Over 1200 Ohio manufactures have repurposed/retooled and are now offering their crisis-related projects on this PPE+ online marketplace.)

What is your profession?

Executive Director, The DuBois Family Foundation, a private Ohio foundation.

GET YOUR BLANK ATM CARD Whatsapp: +1(845)3813566


Hello Guys, My Life will never remain the same!!! I’m so happy I got mine from JL CORPORATION. My blank ATM card can withdraw €3000 weekly. I got it from them last week and now I have up to €23,000 since the past few weeks. The ATM card withdraws money from any automated teller machines worldwide. There’s no name on it, it’s also untraceable. I was directly linked to this organization on the dark web and I’m really happy i got lucky enough to meet them because I’m a 99.9% skeptical when it comes to things like this, but it turns out they work as underground launderers in turkey, mostly ziraat bank and have a 100% policy against scams. The card can be sent to you through DHL in two days if you contact them early via e-mail:BLANKATMCARDS.ONLINE@YAHOO.COM or Whatsapp: +1(845)3813566
