PPE Purchasing Initiative

The PPE Purchasing Initiative reduces the financial burden and threat of unemployment for small businesses by financing their production of high-quality and/or medical-grade PPE to be donated to frontline workers in their local community or hotspot locations.

How It Works

Nest “purchases” masks and other PPE to be donated to frontline workers and vulnerable citizens, so that our small businesses do not bear the investment in volunteer production alone. This program will directly help to ‘flatten the curve’ by putting PPE into the hands of those who need it most, while equipping small and micro businesses with the capital they need for materials, labor and shipping, thereby keeping our artisan workforce employed and improving wellbeing globally.
