We were incredibly moved to an inspiring friend Emily Farra co-founder of @soft__skincare, set up a fundraiser MASKS for MASKS to raise money for doctors and nurses in New York City that are running out of surgical & N95 masks.Inspired by the incredible work this team has done and deeply saddened by the fact that New York City does not have enough protective equipment to face this epidemic ARJÉ will be donating 40% of all Online Sales to MASKS for MASKS.
ER doctors don’t know if they’ll have a mask to protect them when they come in for work each day. And in between shifts, doctors and nurses do not have a mask to wear on their commute home, which puts them at greater risk. Our medical community is on the front lines of this crisis and should not be expected to compromise their health this way.
This is not the job they “signed up for,” and the fact that hospitals are not taking care of their staff is incredibly disappointing. New York's government is placing massive orders for masks, but it's still not going to be enough, and in the meantime, doctors and nurses are going into work feeling unprotected and scared."
If you are home and looking for ways to give back, we know the work this team has done has been incredibly effective and we want to encourage each of you to click below and donate directly to the GoFundMe page.PLEASE DONATE
