You can be a hero, too. Let’s face it: hospitals need more life saving medical equipment to fight the spread of COVID-19. Life looks and feels very different from how it did 3 months ago, and seeing the impact of this virus around the world led Galactic Fed to one important realization: we need to do something.

So what do you do when you want to help? You set a goal. We set the goal to help the worst hit cities gain access to tools and equipment as fast as possible, places like Denver, Nashville, Phoenix, Houston, Philadelphia, Kansas City, and Chicago. Hospitals desperately need this PPE equipment to contain the spread of the virus, and ensure the professionals risking their own lives stay safe. That’s why Galactic Fed, with our superhero network of marketing experts, has set off on a life saving mission to raise money to deliver equipment to the real heroes.

We knew we couldn’t accomplish such a big goal without some help. We are proud to partner with Project C.U.R.E., an organization dedicated to providing PPE and medical supplies to those on the front lines. They coordinate the delivery of life saving equipment like gloves, hand sanitizer, bleach wipes, eye protection, face shields, PPE equipment and n95 masks to hospitals.

Galactic Fed is, as our name implies, a Federation - a group of top marketers around the world combining their forces for the greater good. In this case, we used the power of the Fed to partner with Project C.U.R.E and tap into the infrastructure they already had. Achieving a big goal seems a lot more achievable when you enlist the experts and show people where to donate during COVID-19.

As the COVID-19 landscape is changing by the day, even by the hour, we are working with Project C.U.R.E. to ensure medical and personal protective equipment are going to the areas hit the hardest in our local and international communities. We know that millions of front line workers are feeling the extreme weight of the situation right now, and we want to ensure they get exactly what they need to continue being heroes.

It’s often in times of crisis and chaos that we see the best of humanity. It’s a compelling paradox, that within tragedy there can be much triumph. At Galactic Fed, we wanted to do our part to contribute to this triumph. With the amazing help of Project C.U.R.E, we know we can reach our goal and help the real superheroes who are saving the day. Help give safety, help give hope, help a hero.

You can help - right here, right now.

Here’s how you can get involved today:

  1. Visit the #HelpAHero webpage and choose your donation amount. 100% of net proceeds go directly to the cause through GoFundMe. All donations are issued a tax receipt.
  2. Your donation goes towards life saving medical equipment that is shipped to cities most affected by COVID-19.
