The MillionLives.org initiative is dedicated to helping prevent millions of people being infected by the global Covid-19 pandemic by using our global network to procure approved Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from major suppliers around the world and distribute them to where they are most needed.
This is a completely volunteer driven effort by business leaders around the world who met while studying at Harvard Business School or are connected through the Young Presidents Organization, the Entrepreneurs Organization and other leading institutions and non-profit organizations globally - all of which are absolutely passionate about helping in this time of crisis.
Medical institutions and other organizations around the world are struggling to acquire PPE supplies they desperately need during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Some institutions simply can't afford the equipment while others are struggling with procurement challenges related to acquiring supplies from atypical channels.
We raise funds and use donations to procure PPE supplies which have been sourced and verified by our global supply chain. Our Leadership Action Team, led by Seamon Chan and Andy Steggles are focused on raising funds which are then used to procure and distribute medical supplies to in-need hospitals, clinics, first responder organizations and government agencies around the world. Our global pandemic response teams help navigate the regulatory and customs challenges in recipient countries.
We invite anyone who has a need to fill out our request form which we then use as our guide when allocating funds. Our Leadership team considers many factors when determining where to ship PPE items, including but not limited to:
Where the current and imminent pandemic epicenters are;
Restriction requests associated with major donations;
Complexity of compliance (regulatory, cultural, customs, import etc)
Individuals who wish to donate via credit card, are requested to do so via our GoFundMe page. Any person or business wishing to donate via ACH or wire transfer etc. are requested to reach out to Andy Steggles or Seamon Chan directly or use the Contact Us form at the bottom of this page we'll get back to you ASAP.
Requests for PPE items are welcome. Complete our simple request form to let us know of your need.
More complete requests are given priority. For example, if a request comes in to send 1000 N95 masks to a specific hospital but with no contact information, it may be given a lower priority if there is a similar request which has an individual's contact info from a request with more detail in a similar location. PPE requests should be submitted by completing our request form.
