The Meaning Behind Our Name
The Ai (pronounced “I”) in our title comes from the word Aikido, which is made up of three Japanese characters that mean “join,” “energy,” and “the way,” which combine to mean “the way of joining (with) life energy.” Ai also means “love” in many eastern languages, including Japanese and Chinese.
The philosophy of Aikido guides us in our efforts as we join forces to battle the worldwide pandemic with positive and immediate action. We each see it as our individual responsibility to take action in this fight, and we provide a means for others to join us and be part of the fight too.
It is by joining together and combining our energy and resources that we can really make a difference. Our group includes inventors, health care workers, manufacturers, lawyers, business owners, therapists, teachers, and investors, and it is open to anyone who wants to help!
