Operation Pac Man in full swing
OPERATION PAC-MAN, a non-profit organization created to help fight the spread of COVID-19 worldwide, wasted no time fulfilling its mission! Established by Isaac Larian, CEO and Founder of MGA Entertainment, Inc, the parent company of L.O.L Surprise! and Little Tikes, Operation Pac Man delivered more 65,000 masks (surgical, N95 and KN95) and face shields to 40 hospitals around the country, successfully tested a new ventilator prototype and supported the 250-bed, makeshift hospital in the Los Angeles Convention Center – all within seven days! With requests coming throughout the day, the team ordered 2 million masks, 500,000 face shields and 300,000 goggles, which are in transit and will arrive next week.
Commenting, Larian said, “Team MGA has worked around the clock to get Operation Pac Man up and running but there is still so much more to do. I ask everyone to please help in any way you can to support. Any donation amount to OPERATION PAC-MAN will provide more funds to purchase personal protective equipment for our fearless healthcare workers fighting for us.
In addition, throughout the past week the designers and engineers at MGAE and Little Tikes worked with a local hospital to test the MGAE ventilator prototype design. After a few modifications, it is now ready for production. The ventilators will be produced at the Little Tikes factory, located in Hudson, Ohio, where the team is already re-tooling machines so that mass production can begin immediately.
MGAE has also purchased and donated hundreds of thousands of protective masks for our brave doctors and nurses at hospitals.
