Olympic Siblings Raise Over $26,000 to Give PPE to Front Line Workers


Olympic medalists Maia and Alex Shibutani launched a GoFundMe Charity with GetUsPPE to address the declining personal protective equipment (PPE) needed by frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The “Shib Sibs”, who share five Olympic medals, raised almost $27,000 out of their $30,000 goal since launching their campaign on April 2. The siblings said they both donated $1,000 each and extended their initial goal of $10,000 to $30,000 due to the positive response.
