SONSIEL and the GLO Good Foundation Celebrate Nurses Month by Getting Them More PPE

In celebration of Nurses Month, SONSIEL and the GLO Good Foundation today announced a unique set of retail offers and recognized a dedicated group of backers—all collaborating to elevate personal protective equipment (PPE) donation levels to frontline healthcare. While millions of PPE units have arrived to hospitals through commercial, government, and charity efforts, hundreds of U.S. facilities remain in need of PPE supplies. The SONSIEL-GLO Good partnership tirelessly develops new channels of visibility and new resources of equipment in order to ensure as many as facilities as possible receive donated PPE, as quickly as possible, and on a non-profit basis.

Now patrons wishing to support the continued movement of PPE to hard-hit healthcare facilities may purchase choice coffee and wine packages, as well as designer shoes, with a portion of proceeds applied toward non-profit PPE purchases by the SONSIEL-GLO Good Foundation Charity GoFundMe campaign.

The SONSIEL-GLO Good giving campaign also would like to recognize a number of dedicated businesses and other organizations that have supported the PPE collection and donation efforts.

Since SONSIEL first issued an urgent call-to-action with the SHARE program on March 17, 2020, nearly 250,000 pieces of donated protective gear have gone to dozens of U.S. frontline locations. A March 20, 2020 ABC News Nightline episode featured the activity, with SONSIEL President & Co-Founder Rebecca C. Love, MSN, RN, and GLO Good Foundation Co-Founder Dr. Jonathan B. Levine. With an onslaught of incoming PPE requests, SONSIEL and GLO Good established a direct-sourcing Charity GoFundMe campaign March 22, 2020; to date, the campaign has sourced and distributed more than 30,000 respirator masks to dozens of U.S. facilities. Every new donation facilitates the acquisition of more masks. The partners have identified a new US manufacturer for the highly demanded products.

Remarked Dr. Jonathan B. Levine, GLO Good Foundation President & Co-Founder, “We are so very humbled to see how our network of commerce and community continues to engage themselves and others in support of this lifesaving effort. We truly have rallied the nation to get behind these healthcare heroes. We won’t stop helping until we know for certain that all of the requests have been met.”

Rebecca C. Love, MSN, RN, SONSIEL President & Co-Founder, stated, “Every day, together, we innovate new ways to meet these urgent and outstanding needs for PPE. What began as a neighborhood collection expanded to include hundreds of individuals and businesses volunteering nationally on behalf of frontline healthcare. I cannot think of a more appropriate time than May, the Month of the Nurse, to thank everyone who has given so much to help those that give everything to care for us.”
