Helping the Helpers - A List of DIY PPE Resource Links

Hey everyone,

Crazy times!  We hope all of you are safe and healthy, and we thank you for your work.

DIY PPE from Madison Supply

Around the country people are coming together to try to create a homespun solution to the personal protective equipment shortage.  The solutions range from high tech, using computer modeling and 3d printing, to low tech sewing machines being dusted off to sew masks out of cotton fabric.
In fact, our own personal 3d printer is humming away in the basement, 24 hours a day, printing PPE for local health workers, and our best friends are sewing face masks everyday for cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy.

We love it. We wish we didn’t need it, but we will always cheer when we come together to help our neighbors.

So, if you are looking for some way to help, here is a list of how-to guides, 3d files, etc. that will show you how.

Share with everyone you know who is sitting at home wondering how else they can help.  It seems like a big problem, one that can only be solved with big gestures, but like my dad always said…"How do you eat an elephant?  One tiny bite at a time.”

First things first! Reach out to your community, Facebook, Nextdoor, Instagram, email, etc., and ask them what they need… Some need masks, some need face shields, some need coffee.  Where the need is and where your skills intersect is where you can help.
