Many of the Karen refugees from Myanmar (formerly Burma) and Thailand are Baptist and Seventh-day Adventist. This video report from the Rockwood Adventist Church highlights the need for continued funding of the Seventh-day Adventist's first Karen Church Planter in the NW United States.Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as the only source of our beliefs. We consider our movement to be the result of the Protestant conviction Sola Scriptura—the Bible as the only standard of faith and practice for Christians.Currently, Adventists hold 28 fundamental beliefs that can be organized into six categories—the doctrines of God, man, salvation, the church, the Christian life and last day events. In each teaching, God is the architect, who in wisdom, grace and infinite love, is restoring a relationship with humanity that will last for eternity.Donate Now

1. Introduction As Korean, we’ve undergone a shortage of face masks, and we still are. We know that it’s not only just us but the whole world. To deal with this problem, we launch "What if we make our own mask?" Campaign with Face Mask Kit. We developed and designed our Face Mask Kit focusing on three things. Better look Lower price Superior user experience Long story short, let us show you our product first. We believe that with our effort and support from backers, this campaign will be helpful for people in need. 2. Background We are well aware that the WHO and CDC do not recommend the use of face masks by the public. However, masks are effective at capturing droplets, which is a main transmission route of many diseases including COVID-19. If you are likely to be in close contact with someone, wearing a mask could help you. 3. Problem Due to dramatically increased demand for face masks, Any face masks went out of stock for a while and many people reused their disposable masks, which supposed to be worn only once, exposing themselves to infection and unsanitary. Last year, China manufactured 20 million masks per day which is half of the world’s supply for mask. Today, Chinese manufacturers supply approximately 80 million masks to deal with explosively increased demand thanks to the rapid expansion of facilities and factories. Furthermore, the world now faces a serious shortage of face masks due to unexpectedly increased demand from Asia, Europe and North America. Front-line health workers such as medical staff in hospitals and those people who can’t get the proper medical services are most affected by a shortage of face masks. We identified the cause of the shortage of face masks in the supply chain. When demand increases, three problems arise in the supply chain. First, facilities and skillful staffs are insufficient to meet the demand. Second, factories run out of raw material for the mask. Lastly, cornering and panic buying face masks force end-consumer to buy masks with unreasonable price and quantity. 4. Solution We would like to solve these three problems at once by "What if we make our own mask?" Campaign. We think that making a face mask at home can replace time-consuming processes within manufacturing at the factory. The face mask kit has two parts: frame and roll-filter. You can replace one part with similar material you can get in daily life. If you wash the ordinary disposable mask, filter layers in the mask would lose its function properly. However, as our filter is removable, our mask frame can be washed with water and used again with a new filter. Also, this reusable mask is made of 50% less material compared to normal disposable masks, reducing wasted material up to 70% in disposable masks. 5. Case Study Seoul, where 10 million people live, is among cities with very high population density around the world, yet the spread of COVID-19 in Seoul is under control. Despite emerging new clusters in Seoul, the infection was contained within related people in those clusters and its families, thanks to the public wearing masks and washing hands. Also, wearing face masks can protect your family. For example, #1129 patient in South Korea noticed that he has symptoms of COVID-19 and wore a mask for 2 weeks even at home until the hospital gave him confirmation that he is diagnosed with COVID-19. He did not infect anyone he contacted in those 2 weeks including his 80 years old mother who could be very dangerous if she was infected. 6. Social Contribution Premade disposable masks can be supplied for those who really need the masks, especially front-line health workers. Risks and Challenges We are working on this project with the mission of making products that will be used by many people desperately, and we promise to provide transparent and thorough feedback. Every team member will do their best to deliver fast and accurate results and to control every possible risk. We are currently working on this project after confirming that raw material availability is available in China. The price of raw materials has risen by roughly 10 times compared to one before this situation, and the price is still rising every minute. Even though raw material factories are expanding at a tremendous rate, and mask manufacturing factories are also busy trying to expand, it is not enough to satisfy the demand. Therefore, we are planning to quickly start securing raw materials as soon as we achieve the goal of this project. There is a risk that the trade of materials and mask products might be prohibited if several cases in China explodes again. Under the supply and demand control of the Chinese government, the project might be in danger of being delayed. There is a risk that there might be slight changes in rewards due to changes in raw material prices in the future. There might be slight changes in product design to improve user experience and to minimize manufacturing costs.Donate Now
About ¨The Vanguard Mask¨ As you may have heard, there is a shortage of face masks around the country and millions of people are being affected. Using our resources and expertise, we have been working on developing the best possible fashionable face mask to help those in need, “The Vanguard Mask.” Please see chart below to learn more about our perks: "The Vanguard Mask" was first inspired when I saw my mailman (from USPS) without a mask and wanted to help him and all other front line workers who are in need of masks. That same day, I heard NY Governor Andrew Cuomo’s call to action to make masks. I could not stay home and sit on my couch doing nothing. I was determined to make a difference. Who We Are My name is and I am the founder of Ari jogiel , an apparel Development & Manufacturing company located in Downtown Los Angeles. We specialize in bringing concepts to life. At Ari Jogiel, our day-to-day consists of helping brands pursue their dreams by working with them on their product development and manufacturing processes. Today we work with over 100 brands from across the States, with all of our garments Made In Freaking Los Angeles. How It's Made “The Vanguard Mask” uses antimicrobial material that is a Cationic Poly blend, sourced in Los Angeles, CA. Cationic polyester is a material that has sustainable nanoparticles with unique mechanical properties. The materials biocompatibility and low toxicity, making it a perfect alternative for biomedical applications, like a face mask. “The Vanguard Mask” contours to your facial features providing a tailored fit. The mask was constructed with facial features in mind. The adjustable straps provide a tailored fit to allow comfort while not interrupting your regular airflow. There is an additional layer of 100% cotton that acts as a built-in filter stitched in between the two layers that construct the mask. The entire mask is machine washable, giving it a reusable long-lifestyle. The Impact This project is important to us because we believe that we should do everything we can to keep everyone healthy and safe. This campaign represents us creating the change we currently need in this country. By participating in this project, raising money, and producing masks, we are taking action. Although the severity of each individual's situation ranges from mild to extreme right now, we need to think about those around us and cover-up. We are all in this together and will get through this, together. What We Can Accomplish Together Our goal for this campaign is to raise a minimum of $15,000. With $15,000 we can produce at least 3,000 masks. However, we do not want to stop there. We have the bandwidth to produce over 100,000 masks PER WEEK! The only thing stopping us is the resources to acquire the materials. With your help, we can make a real difference in getting people across the entire country covering up to protect themselves and their communities with their Vanguard Masks. Every purchase and contribution will play a key role in us being able to maximize the number of masks we can provide! Overcoming Challenges Being a clothing manufacturing company based in Los Angeles, CA we could have easily thrown in the towel a few weeks ago. We were losing clients, team members, and watching everything shut down around us. We refused to sit back and watch. It is in our nature to be tenacious and keep fighting. Contributing to this project not only means you are supporting your community, but it symbolizes the fighter in you. Other Ways You Can Help We understand that not everyone can contribute financially. However, everyone does have the power to help us reach our goal by doing the following: Sharing this campaign link on all social media platforum Reposting our masks and tagging us on Instagram using hashtag #GuardForGuard Follow along with our journey to reach 100,000 masks a weekDonate Now

Dear comrades, supporters and readers of the Socialist Appeal.The stage in history through which we are passing is one of deep crisis. The sudden epidemic of Covid-19 is accelarating this process, exposing the brutality of the capitalist system, and its inability to adapt to human need. This will also be a global phenomenon, and such questions of life and death will bring class consciousness to the fore.This makes the building of the Marxist tendency even more urgent, and will provide excellent opportunities to do so.It also poses certain difficulties, however, particularly that of finance.In the current circumstances of social distancing, isolation, and even potential lockdown, we will strive to maintain regular, high quality Marxist analysis on a daily basis and host a number of online conference events, meetings and reading groups, to educate and organise activists in the midst of this crisis. But our ability to sell material and raise money will inevitably be hit during this period. Without rich backers, our ability to maintain our apparatus and continue providing a Marxist voice for the British labour movement will ultimately depend on the support and sacrifice of class-conscious workers and youth.We therefore issue this appeal to all our readers and supporters. This incredible stage through which we are passing demands that we maintain our growth and development, for which we rely on your support!Donate Now

UNICEF today released it's US$ 4.2 billion 2020 emergency appeal to reach 59 million children with life-saving support in 64 countries across the globe. It is its biggest ask of donors yet, representing 3.5 times the funds requested in 2010. “Around the world today, we’re seeing the largest number of children in need of emergency assistance since we began record-keeping. One in four children lives in a country affected by conflict or disaster”, said UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore. “Historic numbers of children forcibly uprooted from their homes urgently require protection and support. Conflict remains the major driver, while hunger, infectious disease, and extreme weather events related to climate change force millions of others to seek life-saving aid.” UNICEF’s Humanitarian Action for Children sets out the agency’s 2020 appeal and its work to provide conflict- and disaster-affected children with access to water, sanitation, nutrition, education, health and protection services. Overall, including adults, the appeal covers emergency support to 95 million people. The five largest individual appeals are for Syrian refugees and host communities in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Turkey (US$ 864.1 million); Yemen (US$ 535 million); Syria (US$ 294.8 million); the Democratic Republic of the Congo (US$ 262.7 million); and South Sudan (US$ 180.5 million). Reaching the growing numbers of children affected by crises worldwide – especially in countries that typically receive less funding – requires not just additional funding, but funding that is more “flexible”, Fore said. “Our ability to provide children with support from the moment disaster hits until they can get back to their normal lives requires funding that is quickly available, multi-year and isn’t tied to particular countries or issues. Flexible funding helps us save more lives and protect more futures.” In 2019, flexible funding enabled UNICEF to respond to a dramatic increase of insecurity and displacement in Burkina Faso and Mali, two countries whose emergency appeals are still less than one-fifth funded. The 2019 appeal – set at $3.92 billion and revised upwards to $4.13 billion mid-year, was 57 per cent funded as of 1 November, including $761 million in multi-year funds carried over from the previous year.Donate Now

I'm Joanne Matthews, National President (in Australia) of the Reflux Infants Support Association Inc. We've been around since 1980 supporting parents of children with gastroesophageal reflux disease. We've been aware for a long time of serious inconsistencies in treatment for babies with this disease and how very hard it can be for parents. That there is very little sleep, very little understanding and a much higher rate of post-natal depression in the parents and perhaps a higher risk of harm to children. We put out a survey in June 2016 to get a better understanding. The response was overwhelming. Families everywhere wanting to share their stories. Hoping that their stories might make things better for other families if someone in authority could hear and see what they'd been through. With that in mind we want to have this data independently and professionally analysed and want to engage someone to do that work. We estimate that stage one will cost about $21093. A detailed breakdown of that cost is below. We would like to raise these funds as quickly as possible so the results are current at the time of publication. We believe this data is a game-changer. We think that if the medical establishment are truly able to hear and understand this very large and heartbreaking story, they won't be able to fail but take steps to make a change. We believe as a result of this horrible and difficult disease, children and their parents lives are often put in danger. And that is not an exaggeration. Extreme sleep deprivation does horrible things to a person. Quite aside from becoming a danger behind the wheel. Parents are forced to sleep their children in dangerous positions against their better judgement, without medical imprimatur and often in secret. And rates of pharmaceutical prescription should be the least of our concerns. This is a high risk group that desperately needs attention and this data can provide it if we can only elicit its story accurately and in a way that will withstand scruitiny. We can only thank you in advance for understanding how important this work is and supporting it. All donations will be tax deductibleDonate Now
