What about all the people overseeing the food distributions at local schools?? These people are volunteers afaik, who have their own lives & own pre-pesach situation, and are spending hours prepping sandwiches, manning the crowds, and organizing food for our families.

No words. These are the people that are bringing Moshiach.

KIDDUSH HASHEM: Medtronic, the world’s largest manufacturer of medical equipment, is currently receiving large amounts of attention for its ventilator. This week, the CEO of the company's Israel division, Yaron Yitzhari, made the decision to release all of Medtronic’s patents for the production of ventilators, in order to enable any company wishing to manufacture them to use Medtronic’s blueprints, for free. Wasn’t he concerned about the potential loss of profit for his company, almost certain to run to the millions of dollars? “In the present situation, I’m proud to work at Medtronic,” he replies. “Our goal is to prolong lives – to save lives, in fact. This is what’s needed right now, in the emergency situation we’re in, and this consideration comes before everything else. These are unusual times, and they demand of us to act in unusual ways. So, when it comes to calculating the financial impact, it has negligible weight, because the main thing is saving lives, and that’s what our company knows how to do.”

Realistic time to market for someone with the manufacturing capacity and experience to start from scratch with these blueprints?

Can we arrange for a mass-like button for this thread? My finger is hurting from liking every post.

No idea if Israel actually deserves credit or if this is fake news, but Non-Israeli media isn't giving Israel the credit.
Seems unlikely that the CEO of the Israel division would have the ability to make a final decision like this, but perhaps he recommended it? Unclear what the actual story is.

Personal sacrifices. From a sheitel macher.

I am doing it for my family
I am doing for my entire family
My dearest Jews all over the world .
I dont want to sit anymore and hope that some jew somewhere will bring the karban we all need so badly !!!!
Instagram is my business space
It has brought me hundreds of clients
And tons of free pr
But isnt it Hashem who gives us the parnassa
Why would I think its been my work
My Instagram -gorgeous page . Its HASHEM
The same HASHEM that took away all my business from this week and possibly next
Thousands of dollars owed to me
From clients who cant get their wigs
I owe thousands to vendors
And its sitting mid air
But hey I have the best marketing skills
I have an attractive Instagram page
With zero work to show for myself

Rabbanim ask us to sit at home and think about where this corona virus has hit us
In my own home I have a lot to work on
And Im my other home my work -this is where I shall start .
Throwing away the Instagram famous page of xxxxxxxxxn
And giving it up as a Karban to Hashem
And at this moment I am bawling my eyes out davening
That Maybe because this is the most heart wrenching gut wrenching thing for me to do that this karban is big enough to take away this virus from klall yisroel
And bring Mashiach right away !!!!
Heal those who are sick !!
Bentch those who need parnassa !!!!
Give shalom bayis to each and every home !!!
Give children to parents who are begging !!!, parents should have pure nachas from their children always ! !!!

My plea is I beg HASHEM to continue to make me succesful , to continue to have people trust me although they dont see it on Instagram .
I want customers who are loyal , customers who appreciate me . And not the hype. I hope and i am sure Hashem can do that all , because He has been all this time .

I think she's a tzadekes. I am in awe of her courage and I believe there are thousands like her who are trying to do cheshbon hanefesh. Like Hillel, she obligates us all.

would have been a real sacrifice 6 months ago, as opposed to now when no one is looking for shaitels anyhow
We'd love to hear your "real sacrifice".

Ah, you feel that the shaitel market is dead forever?
