What is #findthemasks?
#findthemasks is a global mapping tool and interactive directory for PPE needs. Our mission is to enable individuals, communities, makerspace networks, and large-scale manufacturers to engage and assist during the COVID-19 pandemic by providing our frontline healthcare and other essential workers with the personal protective equipment they need to protect themselves.
Who is #findthemasks?
This site was launched on March 19th
by Rachel Popkin and has been built and improved
upon by many fantastic volunteers worldwide.
The team is made up entirely of volunteers and includes physicians, scientists, physicists, epidemiologists, engineers from tech companies such as DropBox, Amazon, Google, and AmperityImparity, and even professional data moderators based in the Philippines.
