ALAMEDA, Calif., May 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- During Nurse's Week, May 6-12, the Hand to Hand Coast to Coast project is helping to equip nurses with an under-supplied essential as they fight the war on COVID19. With the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) this effort targets the most used item in a nurse's arsenal, hand sanitizer. The project's goal is to raise funds for raw materials to produce 1M soothing custom-formulated hand sanitizers and give them directly to nurses that need them across the U.S.
Millions of nurses walk from room to room and patient to patient constantly pumping sanitizer dispensers, at least 100 times a shift, leaving their hands irritated and raw. Most nurses are not provided personal hand sanitizers to carry with them while working throughout their day. Furthermore, at the end of their day, they often leave healthcare facilities, agencies, and their in-home patients, still without their own bottle for protection. Having their own unrationed supply of gentle disinfectant would make all of the difference for our angels of mercy.
Producing hand sanitizer in bulk is usually done by large manufacturing companies. So, what do Sopiea Mitchell, Cosmetic Chemist/Owner of 3toZEN, Marsha Harrison, Marketing Consultant, Leslie Silket, the President of Nurse's Children Foundation, and NFL's own Omar Bolden have in common? This passionate small but mighty group known as Hand to Hand Coast to Coast, launched a GoFundMe campaign that produces and delivers soothing-formulated hand sanitizers directly to nurses for free.
"We all look for ways to make a difference and we all have something to give. Each of us play a vital role in this project and we know that at the end of the day, it's about taking care of our nurses because they take care of us." Sopiea Mitchell, Hand to Hand Coast to Coast
