3D Brooklyn wins COVID-19 Solutions Fund award from Mozilla

 

Mozilla Award 3D Brooklyn

 

It's an honor to be named one of the three winners for the Mozilla Covid-19 Solutions fund. In less than two weeks, Mozilla received more than 160 applications from 30 countries for the award. The Fund was established at the end of March, to offer up to $50,000 to open source technology projects responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We won this award for our donation program work in March and April 2020. With our donation program, we raised $80,000+ to rapidly-produce face shields for New York city medical workers, created an open-source face shield STL file, and shipped 16,208 face shields to 200+ hospitals and supporting organizations. 

"Mozilla has long believed in the power of open source technology to better the internet and the world," said Jochai Ben-Avie, Head of International Public Policy and Administrator of the Program. "It's been inspiring to see so many open source developers step up and collaborate on solutions to increase the capacity of healthcare systems to cope with this crisis."
