We are a community of 3D printing warriors, delivery superstars & many others who are working together to support our front line heroes.
We grew from nothing to 8000 volunteers in a matter of weeks. They worked tirelessly to plug the gaps in the traditional PPE supply chain daily. We worked together to create what was needed until which time they have caught up, or we have defeated the COVID-19 crisis. Whichever is sooner. We grew from a single comment to a community of over 8,000 amazing volunteers in a matter of weeks.
In a matter of weeks, we built the technology, infrastructure, and community spirit. Some say we were probably the fastest growing startup ever. Others have referred to us as the ‘Amazon of Face Shields’ All we know is that we could have done any of it without our tireless volunteers, donors and support from businesses, schools, colleges and Universities across the UK.
Yes, it couldn’t have been done without such an amazing 3D Crowd of voluntary printing specialists, coordinators, drivers, administrators, Slack admins, technical whizzes and more. And of course all of those supporting patiently from behind the scenes. GoFundMe friends, sponsors, partners, husbands, wives, friends and family – donating, organising lunch, searching for grocery delivery slots, doing the homeschooling and keeping our households running smoothly, while we’re manning desks, vans and printers. Thank you, hidden support team, for supporting us, so that we were able to make PPE.
