We recognize there’s a lot going on around the world right now with the COVID-19 pandemic. The state of Washington was one of the first states to be hit hard and Kirkland, WA, the city of our headquarters, experienced the first reported outbreak in the US.
Over the last several weeks, we’ve watched in admiration as companies from around the nation pivoted at a moment’s notice to produce highly-demanded items in the wake of supply shortages. We’ve seen distilleries sacrifice production of spirits in favor of hand sanitizer and fashion companies medical masks instead of clothing. These acts of goodwill have inspired us to challenge ourselves to understand how we can leverage our strengths to help our communities when so many people have been left feeling helpless and vulnerable.
Wyze has come together to take the following actions to help our community:
On March 24th we donated over 2000 masks to University of Washington’s Medicine COVID-19 Response team.
On March 26th we announced we will be donating Wyze Cams to small business owners across the state of Washington to help look after their places of business.
On March 31th we announced our Wyze In Response program featuring solutions aimed at helping our communities cope with the ongoing pandemic.
The Wyze In Response program was created as a direct result of leveraging our company’s core strengths: supplier network and rapid software development. Our strong existing relationships with international suppliers allow us to expedite product to our warehouse at a pace much faster than other businesses in the market. Things which usually take months to perfect such as shipping, receiving, customs, payments, invoice management, warehouse management, and the like are already well-established strengths between Wyze and our suppliers. If you are a medical institution or an organization in need of bulk orders apply here.
