Handlebar Jack and Food on Foot
Supporting Foot on Foot - August 2021
For the month of August 2021 we are donating a portion of every sale to a fabulous organization, Food on Foot.
Our family has been volunteering with Food on Foot for years and we love what they do.
Food on Foot is a nonprofit dedicated to assisting our unhoused and low-income neighbors in Los Angeles with nutritious meals, clothing, and a fresh start through life-skills training, full-time employment, and permanent housing.
Face Shield Production Update
Making a difference feels good.
We are very honored to support our first responders. Jordan and I are continuing to make face shields for those who need PPE. Our production capacity isn't that large but every little bit helps.
Thank you to friends and family who have helped us support our communities. To date, we have delivered around 80 face shields to:
- University Hospital In Cleveland
- Hatzolah Emergency
- Playa Vista Pediatrics
- ER Doctors in Phoenix
- Doctors in New York City
- Doctors in Los Angeles
Making Open Source Face Shields
We are all in this together
Here at Handlebar Jack, giving back is really important to us. COVID-19 is placing a tremendous burden on the healthcare system here in the U.S. and around the world.
We really wanted to do something to help out. Since we have a few 3D printers to make the Original Handlebar Jack, we decided to dedicate one of them to make headbands that could be used for face masks that are in such short supply right now during this crisis.
Along with a friend who is laser cutting face shields, we are able to make these masks and send them to doctors, nurses, and hospitals that really need them.
Unfortunately, making these face shields is not cheap. The cost of the materials to create the headbands and face shields is high.
This is where we need some help. If you are someone who wants to help in this crisis but aren’t sure how, we could really use your support.
Paying for all the materials ourselves is becoming unsustainable.
If you could help us out, we would be able to continue creating the face shields that are so desperately needed. Any amount will do.
Please consider donating to this really important cause. If you are interested, please email, instant message or dm me.
