Your generous donations help provide masks to those most in need to survive the COVID-19 pandemic and provide employment to those suffering the economic fall out.
A Zero Waste Culture is a non-profit organization focused on how each of us can live more sustainably to help mitigate climate change and address inequity, even at times like these.
Sew-A-Mask has a team of dedicated volunteers, as well as women suffering from the economic hardships caused by Covid-19 unemployment, working to satisfy the unmet, urgent community need for face masks - especially for marginalized black and hispanic neighborhoods where people are suffering even more from Coronavirus.
We are repurposing donated cotton fabric to provide sustainable face masks, which can be washed and reused multiple times. Just in our fourth week of production, Sew-A-Mask is already sustainably creating over 1,500 masks per week!
Our Wonder Women are working tirelessly, in a concentrated effort, learning entrepreneurial skills and sustainable practices for now and the future, while helping tackle a pandemic and climate change. Our goal is to keep paying our mask makers as we add more unemployed women to our Sew-A-Mask program to help them make ends meet.
We are working in conjunction with many local nonprofits, including:
- Third Wave Volunteers
- LEAP for Ladies
- La Casita
- Key Biscayne Community Foundation
We guarantee that our masks are donated directly to the most vulnerable, at-risk communities throughout Miami-Dade County, beginning with Allapattah, Little Haiti, Liberty City and Homestead. We have just donated 900 masks to the Homestead Correctional Institution in partnership with LEAP.
Funds from this GoFundMe campaign will be used to pay unemployed women in need, who are working tirelessly sewing face masks, as well as to purchase the necessary supplies, such as elastics, ribbons, and nose strips, and to cover related expenses.
Thank you for your support. Together, we can ensure masks for everyone.
