Fundraising for GISH Fest: Change A Life

India is in crisis. COVID-19 cases are skyrocketing, with over 1/4 of a million new cases reported & thousands of people dying every day.

We all know this virus has devastated the world, with over 165 million cases & 3.4 million deaths to date. But after more than a year of heartbreaking loss, there's some hope on the horizon with vaccinations are on the rise.

Except that’s not the whole story, & not all are so fortunate.  

In India, hospitals are overwhelmed, leaving people to suffer or die due to a lack of access to simple supplies. The situation is so dire that even cremation supplies are scarce, leaving people with no choice but to bury their loved ones in the Ganges river, which is now swollen with deceased bodies. As so many of us begin to breathe a sigh of relief in our countries, the people of India are suffering in the hallways of hospitals that lack equipment to care for them or fighting for their lives in their homes, unable to do the most basic thing: breathe. We’re going to help them.  

Background: 

Our team regularly competes in a game called GISH designed to bring out the weirdest, most creative, & adventurous sides of people while doing good. A big part of the game includes a focus on charity from small gestures of kindness to raising donations. One of those charitable items is to help "conquer the world, one random act of kindness at a time." This GISH, we're going to going to help make a difference for those suffering in India.

What your donations will do: 

Your tax-deductible donation will help provide oxygen concentrators, PPE, & food/hygiene supplies to rural hospitals & families. Oxygen concentrators draw in regular air, filter out nitrogen & deliver ongoing, renewable oxygen to patients in dire condition. Unlike oxygen canisters, concentrators do not deplete & can be used for multiple patients, so each oxygen concentrator can potentially help save hundreds of patients — and without this oxygen, they may not survive.
