重要公告:

美国匹兹堡三个华人组织:匹兹堡中华文化中心(PCCC),匹兹堡湖北同乡会(PHFA)和旅美科协匹兹堡分会(CAST-P)联合在元月23号发起了为匹兹堡姐妹城市武汉募捐活动。捐款将用于采购急需的医用物资捐给武汉和周边县市医院。

为武汉募捐活动得到民众的热烈响应和大力支持。大家慷慨解囊,奉献爱心,捐赠者遍布全美,涵盖不同族裔,还有好几笔捐款来自中国。很多义务志愿者宣传募捐消息,转发捐款链接,查对中美医标,提供技术指导,寻找物资货源,联系运输渠道,对接捐助医院,管理财务账目,协调各方行动,使整个募捐活动有序、高效、顺利开展。募捐活动也得到了匹兹堡大学中国学生学者联谊会(PITT CSSA), 匹兹堡中餐馆协会,ANSYS华人员工,Pittsurgh Chinese Grace Church,Ellis School Students等组织和集体的积极参与。我们在此向你们表示衷心感谢!没有你们的支持和参与,募捐活动不会如此成功!

此次募款已于2月13号11:59pm结束。我们所有的募捐包括线上线下总计$75,954。远远超出我们当初设定的$50,000目标。另外,我们还收到5箱口罩和手套捐物。

我们购买的医疗物资,分四批发往武汉及周边县市的10家医院,每笔捐赠都有包含捐赠物资种类,品牌、型号、标准等详细信息的知情函提前发给医院,医院知情签收后发货。前三批货物已到达湖北和武汉各家医院。目前第四批最后一批医疗物资已经下单,等待发货。预计未来一周抵达医院,整个此次捐助活动将于未来7-10天之内圆满结束!到时我们会公布收款,支出和医院接收捐赠表,请大家审查监督。

本城朋友赋诗云:

情系姊妹城
-纪念匹兹堡湖北同乡会抗疫情武汉捐赠
史潮

春节船帆将启航,
忽闻疫情潜长江。
鹦鹉不歌晴川静,
黄鹤楼去白衣忙。
闭门忧思声声叹,
隔天比邻夜夜长。
梅隆钢都东相望,
三河热资抵汉阳。

注:鹦鹉洲,晴川阁,黄鹤楼,长江,汉阳,都是武汉象征。
卡耐基梅隆大学,钢都,三河体育馆,都代表匹兹堡,我们的匹村。

感谢信 THANK YOU LETTER

各位尊敬的捐赠者和志愿者:

元月下旬,武汉新冠肺炎疫情危急,受全球关注。美国匹兹堡三个华人组织:匹兹堡中华文化中心(PCCC),匹兹堡湖北同乡会(PHFA)和旅美科协匹兹堡分会(Cast-p)联合在元月23号发起了为匹兹堡姐妹城市武汉募捐活动。捐款将用于采购急需的医用物资捐给武汉和周边县市医院。

为武汉募捐活动得到民众的热烈响应和大力支持。大家慷慨解囊,奉献爱心,捐赠者遍布全美,涵盖不同族裔,还有好几笔捐款来自中国。很多义务志愿者宣传募捐消息,转发捐款链接,查对中美医标,提供技术指导,寻找物资货源,联系运输渠道,对接捐助医院,管理财务账目,协调各方行动,使整个募捐活动有序、高效、顺利开展。募捐活动也得到了匹兹堡大学中国学生学者联谊会(Pitt CSSA), 匹兹堡中餐馆协会,ANSYS华人员工等组织和集体的积极参与。我们在此向你们表示衷心感谢!没有你们的支持和参与,募捐活动不会如此成功!

募款活动已于2月13号11:59pm结束。我们在gofundme网站募到$58888。 另外在其他渠道收到$14513支票和$1966现金。募捐活动共收到645笔捐款,总计$75367。远远超出我们设定的$50000目标。另外,我们还收到5箱口罩和手套等捐物。

尽管募捐取得巨大成功,但我们的款物比起武汉和湖北的巨大需求,是杯水车薪。我们只能在70多家求助的医院中,挑选了10家武汉和周边的中小医院,希望能为他们救急解难。我们捐赠的第一批1000双手套已到达武汉市新洲区人民医院。第二批5000只口罩和800个护目镜已经或正在送往这10家医院。第三批6000件防护服已经订好,下周发货到这十家医院。另一批大家捐赠的5箱口罩和手套,现在也已到达中国,正在送往武汉医院的路上。这几批货物和运费开销约$61100。我们会继续用余款,采购医疗用品,捐给武汉的医院。

肩负各位捐赠人和志愿者的信任和委托,我们要使捐赠活动尽量公正透明。我们建立了募捐收入账, 采购开销账和医院接收账,这三个账目在活动结束后会公布于众。现在我们首先公布募捐收入账,请大家审核监督。

再次谢谢大家!

匹兹堡为武汉募捐活动协调组公告

各位尊敬的捐赠者,非常感谢你们的爱心和大力支持。截止2月10号9pm,我们在gofundme网站已募到$54,368, 另外在其他渠道收到$4,400支票和$1,466现金。远远超出我们设定的$50,000募捐目标。为此,我们决定在2月13号,星期四晚上11:59关闭我们的gofundme 网页链接,停止募捐。同时castp也停止接受支票方式的捐赠。

我们捐赠的第一批1000双手套已发往武汉市新洲区人民医院。第二批5000只口罩和800个护目镜已下订单,准备送到10家湖北和武汉医院。第三批6000件防护服已经预订,输入供货商订货系统。这三批货总值约$60800。

美国限购停飞,国内封城隔离,情况瞬息万变,为采购和物流带来很多困难和不确定性。我们一定千方百计,争取捐赠物资能早日到达捐助医院。

肩负大家的信任和委托,我们希望捐助能为武汉解难,为医患救急。我们也希望整个捐赠活动能尽量高效、公正、透明。我们正在建立三本账:募捐账目, 采购账目和捐赠物资医院接收账目。最后这三个账目会公开,接受大家的监督。

再次谢谢大家!

Dear donors, thank you very much for your kindness and support. As of February 10th at 9 pm, we have raised $ 54,368 on the gofundme and received $ 4,400 cheques and $ 1,466 cash from other channels. The number is far beyond our $ 50,000 fundraising target. We decided to make Thursday, February 13, at 11:59 pm as the deadline for this fundraising campaign. The online gofundme call for donation and Mailing by check will be suspended at the same time.

With your help, the first batch of 1,000 pairs of gloves we donated has been sent to Wuhan Xinzhou District People’s Hospital. Orders for the second batch of 5,000 masks and 800 goggles have been placed for delivery to 10 Hubei and Wuhan hospitals. The third batch of 6,000 protective suits has been ordered. The total value of these three orders is about $ 60,800.

U.S.-China flights were grounded, and the city Wuhan has been quarantined. The situation is changing rapidly, which brings many difficulties and uncertainties in purchasing and logistics. However, we will do everything we can to get the medical supplies to the hospitals as soon as possible.

We hope that the donation will help doctors and patients in Wuhan to solve some medical supply shortage problem. We will try our best to make the entire donation campaign as efficient, fair and transparent as possible. We are setting up three accounts: fund-raising account, purchase account, and donation materials hospital receipt account. These three accounts will be made public and subject to everyone’s supervision.

Thanks again!
