This project was launched to urgently assist healthcare workers and patients during the COVID pandemic. It has been a truly collaborative, all-volunteer effort comprised of many different people – all generously donating their time in a spirit of cooperation. Like so many efforts that have arisen from this crisis, it is a small example of what humanity can do and be when we are motivated by compassion to work together for a shared goal.


We’d like to especially recognize the superb efforts of two students at UC Berkeley who gave so valiantly of their time and talents. Undergraduate Yaxuan(X) Sun and PhD student Brian Muldoon both in mechanical engineering at UC Berkeley are the future leaders the world needs. Thank you!

Our initial kits would not have been possible without generous donations from Bay Area residents and companies. We specifically want to recognize Bay Sleep Clinic in San Francisco and Air For Life.
