OUR STORY

RE-PURPOSING SNOWSPORT GOGGLES

On March 12, 2020, Jon Schaefer made the decision to shut down Berkshire East and Catamount Ski Areas in MA, USA due to COVID-19. By March 15th most other ski resorts had followed suit. On Saturday - March 28th Jon was forwarded an e-mail from Mike Halperin, an New York City ER Doctor asking for donated ski goggles to help fill the void for his frontline medical workers as they were running out of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Jon quickly created a spreadsheet in an attempt to manage what ended up becoming the initial wave of requests from medical centres that established the need to create GogglesForDocs.com.

From there it caught the attention of Australians Joanna Cody of RESORTer, Melbourne; Neen Weir in Sydney; and Jade Galbally of The Jado Bottle, Melbourne. With help from Jon and Trevor Crist of Inntopia, they teamed up along with a stack of other contributors and sponsors to make a difference and created GogglesForDocs Australia & New Zealand.
