As we’ve seen in the past months, the COVID-19 epidemic has brought our world to a halt. We read this quote from Mr. Rogers recently:
When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” ― Fred Rogers
So we asked ourselves, “How can we be the helpers?” We have spoken to many SF Bay Area hospitals that are willing and happy to use reusable fabric face masks so that N95 masks can be saved for treating patients with COVID-19.
In order to act quickly, we enlisted our manufacturing networks to make as many fabric masks as possible to be deployed to the most needed areas.
We know these masks won't replace N95 masks, but can be a first line of defense for less critical needs, freeing up essential PPE for treatment of COVID-19 patients.
We now lean on our supporters, our army of “helpers”!
WE ARE AIMING FOR A GOAL OF $10,000 WHICH EQUATES TO 5,000 MASKS ($2/mask).
All masks will be donated to SF Bay Area hospitals on the www.donateppe.org official request list.
You'll receive a tax deductible receipt for your generous donation (through EllieFunDay’s non-profit organization, Handcrafted for Life).
Please share this with your friends and family! Together we can #spreadlove!
