With the pandemic going and other personal life events I wasn’t able to make face mask to either sell or for personal use. So for awhile we just bought ours.
Now that I have time I have started to make them. I have decided that right now I will not be selling them. There are many people that do not have access, financial means or are forgotten and do not have one.
Now I love First Responders and I thank them for their service on here and everywhere I see them. I pray for them and their families and hopefully they do not get this deadly virus. Saying that my hubby and I have decided to donate these face mask to foster / adopt agencies, non-profit organizations that distrubute a mass quantitiy to other countries, Native Americans, Teachers etc.
The following are a list of charities that we love and have donated face mask too.
The first charity that I donated to was Hannah’s Childrens Home. This is Foster/adop agency. They provide so many services for their Foster families and also help adoptable children find their forever home. They also help foster families through out the program with supplies for the children, answer any questions they may have and keep records of the child’s well being and if old enough school records.
The second organization I donated to is The Robonauts, which is a group of very intellegent kids teaching kids about leadership and stem. They also have joined with American Woman Association to donate face shields to first responders and through out the world. They also have added face mask donations. They also have a go fund me page to which helps them to not charge for the face shields and mask. If you would like to donate to their cause click here.
They have now donated to Native American reservations, Hospitals and other countries.
On our list was our dear friend that owns his own martial arts studio called 1st Class Martial Arts. They have a few instructors and have a lot of kids that love going there to learn about leadership skills, bully prevention and how to respond to a bully. They have different day camps to help with moderate digital schools, day camps and even parent nights.
In the end I know I set up my buisness to make money but sometimes you have to do the right thing and use a skill to help others in anyway you can. I am going to start selling but for donation purposes, meaning someone can purchase mask but it will be for a charity of their choice. I will be setting up a link soon for that.
Here are a few pictures of the mask I have made.
