Good on them for meaningful activation.
In times of national, world crisis there comes the time when those that can do.

Systems around the globe are becoming overwhelmed, some to near breaking point.
Each must do what they can no matter how small.

I am a small person with no authority. The only way I can help is to not get sick and not get anybody else sick.

Rational, data driven medical precautions is what can save us.
Be rational, mindful  and resolute.

Demand responsibility of our leadership, others and ourselves.

I heartily endorse the idea of eliminating all perfume/cologne from the world. I farking hate these human stink bombs.

It wouldn't be Fark without a grammatical error in the headline.

The problem isn't perfume.  The problem is people who over use perfume.

Once again, the awesome Fred Rogers was correct.

"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping."

I agree.  If Patchouli is good enough for Phish fans, it's good enough for the rest of us.

It will cost a mere $250.00 an ounce.

If you're at home because of social distancing, just wash your hands with soap and water.
There was never any real need to go out and hoard Purell or toilet paper -- or anything really.

Misprint.  They are making hand smellirizer.

If you count getting in on the sweet hand sanitizer profit gravy train as responsible, then yes.

I am pretty sure they are giving away for free.

WTF?  Did someone hack the worldometer.com site? Vatican City has like 1,000 citizens and according to what it just displayed more people died than total cases.  Someone made a typo or they got hacked.

Every time you go out you increase the chances of getting infected. Moreso because infection rates climb over time

Best to get enough supplies in house to avoid going out for a while

Neither of those companies are American anymore. Or was that the joke?

I went to a big box store to get a air filter my lawn mower.  I bet they had 20 hanging there for the picking.  I only bought one.  Looking at it you could probably figure out a way to strap it to your face.  I bet they'll all be gone by tomorrow.  Now wiping your boo-wah with it might be tricky but I bet I'll see 10 post on FB soon on how to do it.

There's a narrative on Fark that all American companies suck because they make a profit rip off the public and employ exploit people.

There are distilleries making hand sanitizer and giving it away for free.

Shine Distillery and Grill

Old Fourth Distillery

Durham Distillery

That's just what I found with a quick Google search.

It goes for $70/oz.

They ship gobs of beer-flavored water during times of non-crisis too.

Notice that they say "for France".  If you want a responsible corporation, you're on the wrong side of the Atlantic.

They were created for a time when humans did not regularly bathe, if at all. That time has passed.
