An important thread on #COVID19, #PPE, and what I and my not-for-profit ayeMail are going to do to help.

This is for everybody. ❤️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
Over the past few weeks I've been horrified by stories of the lack of PPE in the NHS, care homes, and for home carers.

I'm equally horrified by the sky-rocketing prices of essential life-saving equipment, with many companies cashing in.

So I decided to do something about it.
I got together with a couple of friends, and we've spent the last two weeks scouring manufacturers and wholesalers to source (relatively) affordable PPE including face masks, visors and gloves.

The situation is pretty grim, with suppliers worldwide *massively* hiking prices.

Wading through the @WingsScotland donor database crunching the numbers to dispatch perks (easy tiger, they haven't even been made yet, so won't ship for another month!) and I was feeling nostalgic.

THIS is the *ENTIRE* perk mailing from 2014.
This is JUST the Notepad perks we dispatched in 2018. There was another two pallets loaded with the *other* perks sent out shortly after.
And 2019?

TWICE 2018. Easily. There's over 2,600 of the keycard multi-tools to dispatch. And a whopping 1,000 tins of mints! MINTS! One-thousand tins!

Don't ever say that he doesn't give back. 😂🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
