We the people. The first three words of the Constitution of the United States of America carry a profound meaning at this trying time in our history. We the people control our fate. Each of us working toward a common goal is the only thing that will get us through this. The government plays a role, but we the people will lead our nation and we will defeat a savage, invisible enemy. President Trump is challenging Americans to step up. Mr. President, I am stepping up.
Mig Vapor has purchased more than 800,000 masks, 15,000 bottles of hand sanitizer, 7,000 face shields, 2,000 biohazard suits, 500 thermometers, and we can get more. Thus far, we have provided personal protective equipment to hospices from Florida to California. I have been in touch with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and supplied masks to Broward County Sheriff's Office. I am trying my best to get personal protecive equipment (PPE) into the right hands to help save lives. In fact, I have been working on this since January. I saw what was coming.
I could use some help. My company is modest in size and I am using all of my resources to buy as much PPE for America as I possibly can. But there are huge companies out there and I am asking them to help me buy more as soon as possible. I have unique access to untapped manufacturing sources. And with some help, we can get more PPE to the United States.
Looking For Help To Buy More PPE For America
Apple, Microsoft, HP, Seminole Casinos, 3M, American Express, or any other large corporation, I am asking for your help. Please help me buy more PPE. Contact me at Mig Vapor. This protective equipment is desperately needed by hospital staff, first responders, seniors and everyday Americans trying to keep their families safe from harm.
To be clear, I am not selling these items for profit. I am stepping up and answering the president's call because I am not about to stand idly by with so many lives on the line. My country needs me. I am in a unique position with access to PPE manufacturing sources no other US-based entity is buying from. How is it that I happen to have a unique manufacturing source? Allow me a moment to explain.
My company includes several supply chain specialists working in China. Mig Vapor is a vaping company, however, due to the global coronovirus pandemic, numerous vape factories in China have been retooled to manufacture medical PPE. As a result, these are essentially brand new medical protective equipment factories. In addition, they make everything to FDA standards. My quality control people on the scene have verified that the masks, shields, goggles and other equipment meet American standards.
No Greater Cause
Oddly enough, the government that I am dedicating everything I have to help is about to wipe me out. The FDA set a May 2020 deadline for vapor products to submit PMTA applications in order to stay on the market. At a cost of over $1 million for every product, my company can't afford that. Only Big Tobacco companies can afford that. As such, my company will likely cease operations this year. In all probability, the only vapor products that will be left on the market after May 2020 will be the Big Tobacco vapor devices.
I spent seven years working day and night to build Mig Vapor. We built a clientele of 50,000 customers, partners, and friends. Soon, we will be gone due to the FDA's hard-line position on e-cigs because of concerns about teen vaping. Wiped out despite the fact that our youngest regular e-cig customer is 36 years old. Our average customer is 55. We do not sell to underage teens. In fact, we use state-of-the-art age verification technology. Nonetheless, the massive financial barriers imposed by the PMTA deadline signals our impending end. For all intents and purposes, the cost is a way to ban my company and force me to abandon my customers.
Be that as it may, I stand ready to work with the FDA, CDC, HHS, and any other three-letter agency to help America combat COVID-19. There is no greater cause right now. This is much bigger than me or my company. This is life and death. I have chosen to take all of the proceeds out of my company and purchase desperately needed medical equipment because my country needs it. Because at some point someone you know will need it.
We will be offering PPE on the Mig Vapor website in the coming days. In addition, we continue to work with various agencies to get bulk supplies to those most in need. Please, stay safe. America will get through this. We are survivors.
