Lunch Delivery to Seattle Children's Hospital

On October 19th, Go Only Electric was proud to provide the wonderful staff at Seattle Children's Hospital with lunch from a local restaurant who regularly supports non-profits in their goal to give back to our communities.

Seattle Children's Hospital fights relentlessly to make sure families have options when seeking healthcare. They are dedicated to making sure "kids can have the childhoods they deserve".

The mission at Seattle Children's is to provide hope, care and cures to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.

During this time of pandemic, Go Only Electric hasn't forgotten about the hard work of frontline and essential workers such as nurses and hospital staff who literally give their all, to all. This is our way of saying:

THANK YOU TO EACH AND ONE OF YOU FOR ALL YOU DO

With your help, we can continue to assist our communities in both small and large ways.

SUMMER DONATION Drop to Frontline Healthcare Workers

Go Only Electric helps Washington State Hospital supply pulse oximeters to discharged patients who have won the battle against COVID-19.

Why was the donation needed? Valley Medical Center, a hospital near the city of Seattle, Washington State informs us that pulse oximeters have been important to helping keeping COVID-19 patients safe and healthy as they recover at home.

These small monitors help provide a more accurate idea as to when an individual may need to return and seek additional help from urgent care or ER.

COVID-19 is such a dangerous disease that some patients may not realize they are about to go into respiratory distress and arrive at the ER too late.

A personal pulse oximeter provides accurate information that care teams can properly assess and support.

GIVE BACK | Your Help is Vital

Why This Donation Was Crucial

On July 27th, Go Only Electric delivered a donation of pulse oximeters to Valley Medical Center Hospital in Washington State. Here's what prompted us to respond to the need:

"One of the devices we need in this work are pulse oximeters. Patients are being trained to either manually check their breathing or to purchase a pulse oximeter.

Unfortunately, pulse oximeters are not a covered benefit for most insurers and we are seeing a high rate of unemployment due to the outbreak."

Valley Medical Center is a public hospital located near Seattle. They have reported "a disproportionate share of vulnerable populations that have shown to be at-risk to COVID-19 infections."

"Besides a high proportion of Medicare and Medicaid patients, our hospital district is home to one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse populations in the U.S," our contact further relays.

"We see a high proportion of immigrant populations, especially, from Russian, Vietnamese and Latino communities. This results in a high level of health equity and social determinant issues that negatively impacts the health status of our community."

    By the Numbers: What We're Facing

    Electric Cars reduce carbon emissions by 6,777 pounds a year.

    Let's review the numbers based on the current options for rideshare available to us and our dear First Responders:

    In 2019, 110 million people used Uber...

    There are an estimated 3 million Uber drivers in 65 countries (some 327,000 in 2015 and 750,000 in 2017 in the USA alone)

    Lyft has claimed 700,000 drivers in USA and 1.5 million globally

    As of 2018, there were approximately 207,920 Taxi Drivers in the USA alone.

    Here's a little critical math for you:

    3,000,000 Uber

    1,500,00 Lyft

    207,920 Taxis

    ---- Equals: 4,707,920 as an underestimation

    4,707,920

    x. 6,777 pound per car

    ---- Equals: 31,905,573,840 pounds of carbon emission worldwide

    Other estimates arrive at the 1,234,920 Uber, Lyft, and Taxi Drivers in the USA alone generating 1,410,100,840 pounds of carbon emission annually in the USA by 2025.

    Electric Vehicles Are Vital During Emergencies

    When a disaster occurs, courageous First Responders must quickly get to hospitals, clinics, and other destinations to support and care for the needs of the public.

    Many Frontline Workers use rideshare services to arrive to their destinations. But should they have to use their own funds to take care of this need?

    Remember: Uber and Lyft generate
    69% more pollution than
    the trips they displace

For ride-hailing to contribute to better climate and congestion outcomes, trips must be pooled and electric.”

    In contrast, Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs) are an important component of our technology portfolio for achieving energy security and sustainability.
