Ayúdame3D and Sakata3D join forces to help La Palma through the sale of the PLA 850 SOLIDARY solidarity reels. For each purchase of this reel, 5 euros will be donated to the La Palma council to alleviate the effects of the volcano eruption on the island.

The coil PLA 850 SOLIDARY is a blue filament that Sakata and HelpMe3D launched in collaboration. Sakata 3D Filaments PLA 850 filament is made from Natureworks' INGEO 3D850 resin, a biodegradable material specifically for 3D printing.

MºEsther García Amezcua, CEO of Sakata3D, has declared that "The situation in La Palma is very complicated, coming out of a pandemic and facing this natural catastrophe now. It is a luxury for Sakata3D to always find facilities when it comes to help from Ayúdame3D. We do this from the heart, wanting to contribute our part among all the makers who want to collaborate and looking forward to send this help so that the island can return to normality as soon as possible".

The solidarity percentage that was destined for Ayúdame3D, 5€, will now go directly to the Cabildo de La Palma. All proceeds from the sales of this filament until 31 October will be used to help the island. The spools can be purchased via the Sakata website or at the sites of any of its distributors.

"I had been thinking for a few days about how Ayúdame3D could help La Palma and Esther came up with this idea of collaboration. Any small action is essential. It's time to help, to help out and to empathise with all the people who are going through very difficult situations", says Guillermo M. Gauna-Vivas, director of Ayúdame3D. says Guillermo M. Gauna-Vivas, director of Ayúdame3D.

With this collaboration, the two organisations want to show the enormous solidarity that exists in the maker community, how important support and empathy is between people and how easy it is to help, "too easy not to do it".
