“Every little bit helps when it comes to ensuring health care workers have the supplies they need, and it’s an honour to play a small role in this important effort,” said Steve. “This initiative is a true testament to the ingenuity of the Maker community and its willingness to take on any challenge. Makers from around the world have been quickly responding to the crisis — using their resources and skill sets with the mission to save lives.”
The project team has 10 team members that include designers, 3D printing experts, community relationship managers and coordinators. It is also supported by many people in the wider community who assist with everything from sourcing supplies to logistics and donations.
The team is always looking for more support — whether it’s through skilled volunteers providing their time, people lending tools (particularly printers and laser cutters), donations of materials (clear plastic sheets, folder covers, overhead transparencies) or financial support through the team’s donations page.
