It’s so wonderful to see so many masks here! What a generous community!
I’m not entering this round officially because I already won a prize last round (thanks again @PerfectlyBohemian for the amazing gift certificate!), but I just want to share some of the masks I’ve been making this month.
Mom and I have been working on masks every day, doing however much we have the energy for, assembly-line style, and so far we’ve already completed and given away around 75 masks, including 7 to a hospital and 20 to the Navajo Nation. We have somewhere around 30 more already made that we haven’t given away yet, but we’re still sending them to friends and family who need them, and hope to keep sending around 20 a week to the Navajo Nation for as long as they’re still asking for them.
I haven’t remembered to take photos of all the masks, but here’s a stack of some we made on just one particularly productive day:
Oh, one other place we’ve been sharing them is on our front porch! We already had a thank you sign up for delivery people, but I wanted it to be more than just lip service, so we’ve upgraded it!
So far three masks have been taken! I’m really glad people want to use them! Two women’s size and one men’s size have been taken, and each time we replace the mask with a new one of the same size, and we plan to keep that up as well. We’re also currently freezing ice to put in a cooler, and starting tomorrow we’re going to have free beverages out for delivery people as well. We’re fortunate enough to be able to afford this, and I thought a tangible thank you for the people making our lives easier right now would be appreciated.
Oh, and here’s a mask I made for one of my friends using fabric I got with last month’s certificate!
