Dear Gabe,

Thank you so much for your donation to the Dr. Sam Brisbane Fund. Your generous contribution will make a real difference in the lives of the healthcare workers at JFK Hospital. We’ve already completed a delivery of supplies to the hospital, although sadly the situation in Liberia took a drastic turn for the worse as civil unrest has erupted in two areas of central Monrovia. Patients with gunshot wounds and blunt trauma injuries were brought to JFK Hospital as our donation was being delivered. The gloves were put to immediate use caring for these patients (literally) - a tragic but powerful reminder of the need there. The hospital is still not fully functional due to staff shortages resulting from healthcare workers contracting ebola. Those healthcare workers who are able to return to work, need and deserve the protections that we take for granted in the United States. We are so grateful you were able to support us in our efforts to support them.

While it is important to support our colleagues during this outbreak, our commitment to JFK Hospital is long-term. We'll be helping the administration, staff and clinicians develop disaster risk reduction programs and develop crisis management systems to help respond to the next emergency.

You can go beyond a donation to help us spread the word about this fund. Josh and I know a lot of people, but hardly enough to meet our fundraising goal through our own contacts alone. Will you consider emailing family, friends or co-workers about the fund? Perhaps a Tweet or Facebook post? Maybe a request to a church or social group? It would mean a lot to us, and really help us spread the word. It is easy to do - just link to

Thank you again for your tax-deductible donation. We'll keep you updated on our work and let you see exactly how your contribution is making an impact.

P.S. - Thanks for being such an awesome human being and friend. I'm looking forward to my next trip to Africa mostly so I can schedule another layover on the way back through NYC to see you and your family.
