Portable Anesthesia machine: Children of Colombia
Organized by: Robbiej Frye
EVENT DATE Dec 08, 2014
Purchase a portable anesthesia machine to help children in remote areas of Colombia.
I am Robbie J. Frye (LinkedIn,Facebook,About.me), the founder of ripplepi. I’ve created a nonprofit donation platform based on the idea that bringing like-minded benefactors together can truly change our world. This “tribe” seeks out causes and opportunities of high probable impact and via our collective charitable donations, we create ripples in communities across the globe.
Ripplepi, in alliance with the Civil Air Patrol of Colombia, wants you to be part of an amazing opportunity to buy a portable anesthesia machine for children. These children have no access to modern healthcare and desperately need our help. At this moment, the Civil Air Patrol of Colombia doesn’t have an anesthesia device that will allow them to operate on children who need invasive surgery. The DRE Integra Portable Anesthesia Machine will allow the compassionate doctors of the Civil Air Patrol to operate on children in the most remote areas of Colombia, where access by airplane is the only option.
I know that with your help, we can create the largest tribe of donators this world has ever seen. We can establish an impactful force for good on this blue earth, helping those who need it most. With our collective power, we can change the future of our planet and society for all generations to come.
What you receive for being part of this awesome campaign and helping the Children of Colombia.
The cost of this machine is only $10,000, which is exactly what we need in this fundraising campaign. 100% of every single donation earned will go directly towards the purchase of this portable anesthesia machine.
After we reach our $10,000 goal, every dollar earned afterwards will be used to purchase medical equipment requested by the PAC, which is also in needed. Everything we receive will go towards helping this benevolent group as they continue saving lives and impacting communities.
With you on our team, we can purchase this life-saving device and travel to the most remote areas in Colombia so we can assist these children in the most desperate situations. We will use the anesthesia machine for the first voyage of the PAC in January of 2015, using this precious gift to help hundreds of children, thousands of people, and communities that were impossible to reach before.
The ripplepi campaign has some amazing “thank you gifts” to thank you for your valuable participation and to part of this opportunity. In addition to the formal perks, we will document the entire journey and gift a special video back to the community that supports us.
Gracious Perks and Gifts
-Special handcrafted and designed T-Shirts
-Digital and hardcopy books of the adventure
-Unique apparel and gifts signed by the children
-Three seats on PAC airplanes making this adventure in January of 2015
If we are unable to reach our goal, we will send out an email to every person who has donated and provide them with alternative machine options from the Civil Air Patrol. The item with the most votes and community support will then decide where we use the money. No matter what happens we, will provide 100% transparency with all of your money.
The Greatest Impact
This single machine will start far-reaching ripples of positive influence on children in poor and hard to reach communities all over Colombia, allowing the Civil Air Patrol to have a much wider impact on the communities they serve.
Ripplepi has witnessed and participated in several Civil Air Patrol campaigns and has seen the ripples they create in the communities they assist. One simple surgery can allow a person to work, see their family again, and to once again be part of their communities. The volunteer doctors, nurses, and pilots are so pivotal to the state of these remote communities. The ripples they create are far-reaching and make a drastic difference in many lives that need it so badly.
The Civil Air Patrol is one of the most wonderful groups of people we have had the pleasure to work with. We are sure of the great impact they will make with this portable anesthesia machine for the children of Colombia.
