What can you do to support front-line efforts to treat Coronavirus?
GiftBasketsOverseas.com is proud to announce its efforts to provide critical personal protective gear to hospitals in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, and urges its customers and fans to help. As the Western world starts to see the first deaths and worsening projections from COVID-19, one thing is clear: Hospitals are being flooded with cases, while doctors and nurses lack gear needed to protect themselves and others from virus transmission. Sadly, without sufficient Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), the very people capable of helping others survive this illness risk succumbing to it and becoming vectors for it themselves. According to George Gao, director-general of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one of the most important pieces of PPE are masks that can reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Another thing has become clear: To fight COVID-19, we’ll all have to work together to do our parts, from social distancing to making sure everyone gets what they need, we’re in this together. That’s why we’re making it possible to add your donation of KN95 masks to hospitals with every gift you send. Plus, for every $4 mask donation you apply to a gift, we’ll match your donation dollar for dollar, doubling the number of masks we can deliver to hospitals on your behalf.
I love hats. And I’ve gotten to wear a lot of them while working with Gift Baskets Overseas for almost 10 years. Although these days I wear the Director of Marketing hat most often, during the winter holidays I put on my Corporate Gift Specialist hat – like a toboggan full of Christmas spirit.
