Breathe Again: Successfully raising funds to save lives

“Vietnam Breathe Again Fund” is a fresh and ambitious fund to support Vietnam’s frontliners during the fourth wave outbreak of COVID-19.  Being inspired by the initiative of the Founder of Puratos Grand-Place Vietnam and managed by the European Chamber of Commerce (EuroCham), Doodle Design is honored to share the social responsibility with our close partners and like-minded sidekicks in this project in the effort of giving back.  In fact, this collaboration marked a new milestone in the long-lasting partnership between Doodle Design and Puratos Grand Place Vietnam, having worked on various Design Thinking projects.  

Why Breathe Again and what inspired this big idea as the guiding inspiration for the fund? 

When the fund was created, we were at the peak of the Covid wave and the urgency of the fund could help save many lives.  We were under the pressure of chasing with time to bring medical equipment to the people in need.   

“But we need to make people feel hope and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.” Said Chris Elkin, Founder, Doodle Design. “Tomorrow is bright. That should be the soul of our concept.”

The “Breathe Again” name was then created with the intention to encourage people not only to start donating to keep other people breathing but also to shape a community of sharing and giving love, positive energy, and living inspiration. 

The concept we created so far has helped raise 625,00EUR and still keeps Vietnam breathing everyday. Companies or individuals wishing to donate to the fund can contact EuroCham at or visit the funding
