The parent company of L.O.L. Surprise! and Little Tikes has launched a new non-profit to help fight the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19 by raising funds to purchase personal protective equipment for healthcare workers who are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
According to a release from MGA Entertainment, CEO Isaac Larian has launched Operation PAC-MAN in order to help raise funds aimed at obtaining the vitally needed supplies. MGA Entertainment has already purchased and donated hundreds of thousands of protective masks meant for the workers on the frontlines dealing with this crisis and risking their lives to fight for us.
All money donated to Operation PAC-MAN will go directly towards procuring more PPE products for healthcare workers.
"I ask everyone to please help in any way you can to support this or other causes and together defeat this terrible virus," Isaac Larian, CEO of MGA Entertainment, Inc. said in a release about his company's effort. "Any donation amount to this cause will provide more funds to purchase PPE and distribute them."
That's not all - designers and engineers working at MGA Entertainment have also designed a prototype of a ventilator currently being tested at UCLA right now. The new prototype is meant to help supply the shortage of current ventilators being used at a fraction of the cost.
Once the ventilators have been approved - the Little Tikes factory in Hudson, Ohio will begin mass production to help save lives across the world.
