One Hundred and One Salvations!

(We had just received our one hundred and first donation/salvation when I started writing this just before 5pm on the 13th April, then came the Gvt press conference and I’ll come to that in a bit…).

 

Firstly, I and several others working in the Covid response arena (not on our team) are very sure that this is an essential project.  We are very sure...

It’s a truly wonderful thing to think that YOU that are supporting our project and our heroes on the front line.  You and us small people are making such a big difference!  

You are the salvations!  Currently one hundred and one salvations!

We all feel very blessed to have this opportunity to be working towards saving lives.  We feel blessed because we can actually do something to make a difference rather than feeling helpless.  It’s amazing to have a positive purpose in all this!

Saving lives. Does anyone ever get to say anything more important than that?

You, the people who’ve donated can say that you are part of the family that are working towards saving people’s lives.  We are setting up a manufacturing system in the UK to produce PPE, that we soon won’t be able to source anywhere else, that will save lives.

We have already raised 72% of our target within 28hrs and the algorithms on our CrowdFunder dashboard are pointing to a 30-50k raise at the end of our 14-day run.  

Pretty bloomin’ amazing!

I can’t tell you what a boon that this been to Dean and Ben and all the other members of our team.   Thank you so much! They are the real heroes as they have done a totally fantastic job in really difficult circumstances under serious pressure.

It would be great to go past our 10k target asap as that will release the funds and trigger a further ‘stretch funding’ target that we can take a little more time over.  

I know you’ve supported already, but is here any chance you might have a look under the cushions on the sofa?  Just a little bit more.  So, what value are we putting on that life?

It's not a huge amount we're asking for and perhaps you can help us with  £20? £50? 100?  More?  

We can save lives together.  

 It may well be your life or someone you love.  Believe me, they and you need this.  Take a look at the person in front of you. What about your Mum or Dad, your partner, son or daughter.  Friends and colleagues.  

If we are to get through this dystopian daydream that’s the only way.  

We are the positive force.   We are Kindness.  We are compassion.

And we are working together to make this happen.  To save lives.

Thank you so, so much for joining us.

Do feel free to get in touch.

P.s.  Don’t forget that we are in touch with many of experts and specialists at very high levels in all aspects and areas of this arena every day.  We read everything, have read everything that comes out every day.  I haven’t read a newspaper in three weeks and I am only now watching the gvt press conference.  What you hear in the news is often, I’m afraid, quite old news by the time you hear it. Quite a lot of it should not be said.  Quite a lot that should be said hasn’t been…

I’ve decided to give you my opinion on what is happening and what should happen going forward.  I have the very latest, inside track from the horses’ mouths.

I can tell you all the therapies and treatments that show hope, and those that unfortunately have proved to be dead ends - I am updated several times a day. From many sources.

When’s the peak?  When will isolation end? Do we need masks? What's most likely to happen next? The things that you can do (that you haven’t been told) that will decrease your risk and that of the loved ones around you. 

I'll write that up and send it later on today- 14/04/20.   And no, I’m not going to tell you everything.  There’s a fair bit I can’t. But that I can, I will. And I’ll also do my best to get you an update and opinion of the press conference every day after tomorrow going forward.
