Knowing so many people scared of going into work because there's no protection for them to wear - some of them are friends of mine working in places with confirmed cases of Covid-19. Also seeing that while there are some hopes for more provisions for NHS workers, other healthcare workers and key workers remain mostly unprotected, which is crazy. And fixable, if we can work together now.
What it does
Whether you have suitable materials, tools, a space to work in, of are offering your time and skills, there are so many people with 1 or 2 pieces of the puzzle, but just like here in this hackathon, they need to form a team with everything needed to produce high quality PPE. So we provide them with a user editable map to find and contact each other.
How I built it
Google MyMaps, Typeform, Wix
Challenges I ran into
Time is running out and people are dying.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
Not to spend too long filling out forms when there are avoidable deaths happening right now which we might be able to help with.
What's next for PPE maker network
Find another 1 or 2 people to join our team, smash this out together, and get it in the press and circulating across social media and other channels within days.
