ABOUT US

#COVID-19 is a huge hurdle to overcome, but all of us wearing homemade masks when outside is a simple and effective way to protect our communities together.

 

Our mission is to empower the public to make their own masks, learn how to wear and wash them, and understand why it helps reduce the spread of COVID-19 to wear homemade masks any time you go out in public.

 

Which masks? We are advocating the use of reusable cotton masks, made from simple items you can find in your house. Please keep surgical masks & FFP3 respirators for the NHS and social care workers, and donate them if you have some.
