The goal is clear - provide 1700 masks to people in 17 days. The peak is coming and we can help keep these at-risk folks out of the hospitals.
We have the fabric.
We have the skills.
We have the space.
We have the tools.
Through a collaboration of creators such as the Ace Monster Toys Makerspace, The Crafty Avenger, with Circuit Launch in Oakland, CA - and with a large contribution of material from the American Distillery Institute in Hayward, CA - What we need to get the job done in time to make it really matter is funding for people working on the project.
With your help, we can move fast and combine the speed of volunteers with the speed of people getting paid!
Sponsor a Helper! Or even just part of a Helper!

Distribution of Masks starts April 16th - This is happening NOW! Help make it fast enough to make a difference.
We are supporting the most vulnerable among us with these masks. The folks in homeless shelters; in-home healthcare workers; grocery workers, etc. Masks are constructed in a safer workspace by protected workers and packaged for no-contact distribution. The distribution has been pre-determined.
This project also aims to be a model for others who might have the opportunity to fill the gaps in the supply chain. The idea is to move fast, stay on task, and be done within days.
