Mask Trios and Doing Good

 

Thank you everyone who has helped in the fight against COVID-19.  Since the quarantine began, I had the opportunity to help by making masks with filter fabric and due to the high demand, I continue to donate 1 mask for every mask sold.  Here’s a roundup:

Feedback from a donation I made to a NYC resident who cares for elders in their building:

Wear a Mask, Give a Mask

Thank you to everyone who donated to purchase masks.  I was able to dedicate this weekend almost entirely to cutting and sewing masks for those in need.  Currently, I have maintained a ratio of 2 masks donated to those in need per 1 mask sold.

I have only a few masks available for civilians until my next shipment of hepa fabric arrives, and due to the cost of shipping, the sudden price increase on hepa cloth, and the amount of resources dedicated to giving to those in need, the suggested donation amount for masks is increased to $50 per mask.  I appreciate everyone’s continued support and I continue to pledge not to turn away anyone who is in need as long as I can make them.  To order yours: contact me at alishatrimbl3@gmail.com with your mailing address, and send venmo to @Alisha-Trimble.

Masks for everybody

Here are the masks I’ve made to help mitigate the spread of the icky virus.  It’s always best to cover your mouth and nose if you’re going out shopping or pumping gas; since the virus enters through your mouth nose and eyes and we have no way of knowing who might be asymptomatic, it’s best to be protected!

Small and Large masks in natural cotton with filter cloth lining, 2 each.

Special filtration fabric lining wipes clean with alcohol swabs or clorox wipes.  It’s always best to use a fresh mask but if you don’t have one available, be sure to keep yours clean.

I made 10 washable fabric masks ready for donation to a local nursing home. After creating a pattern, sourcing and testing fabrics, in the past couple days I made about 50 masks and donated half of them to families in need and small businesses in the area that conduct face to face interactions with their customers.

If you need a mask, please contact me at alishatrimbl3@gmail.com.  No one will be turned away who is in need of a mask as long as I can make them. Suggested donation is $35 for one mask, $20 per mask if 4 or more.  To order yours or to donate to ordering supplies, go to paypal.me/alishatrimble or venmo @alisha-trimble.
