The good folks at Cajun Safety and Survival are offering a brand new but out of the box Zoll AED Plus defibrillator complete with alarmed and strobed cabinet, priced at $2,000 ($1,700 for the unit and $300 for the cabinet.) With the cabinet, this would be an ideal AED to donate to your local church or private school. They have promised to donate 15% of the purchase price to the Memsahib Memorial Fund, benefiting the Anchor of Hope mission school in Zambia. There are no requirements to owning this unit other than having the money to buy it.

It has an interesting outcome. (I don’t want to ruin it for you.)”
