How We Got Started

Feeling helpless knowing that my brothers and sisters in the medical profession are on the front lines of this crisis without the proper protection that they need to keep them and their loved ones safe, our family set out on a mission to help! 


We found a reference and a pattern that shows that a homemade "N-95 like" respirator mask is "better than nothing" (or the scarves/bandannas they have been told to use in the meantime!!!) Our goal is to use the pattern to make as many as we can and deliver them to local hospitals that are low on supply!


Our very generous friends and family came together and purchased all of the supplies needed for the 1st round of this effort (via Amazon Wish List) in less than one hour! 


Thank you, thank you, thank you to all that have donated supplies, funds and offered your time and sewing skills! It warms my heart more than you will ever know!! We will keep you all in the loop of our progress and where our donated masks end up!
