Weekly Newsletter May 19, 2020

We've got you covered!

Thanks to the feedback and encouragement from many of you, after producing and donating masks in Kenya over the past few weeks, we are now producing non-medical masks that are available for sale in the US and in Europe! We will be donating all of the proceeds to GiveDirectly's* Kenya Covid-19 Fund, which is sending digital cash transfers directly to low-income families in Kibera and Mathare in Nairobi. The economic impact of the pandemic is being felt around the world, and we believe strongly in the dignity and value of cash transfers to allow people to take care of themselves and their communities.

The masks are made with 100% cotton kitenge and have two layers with contrasting prints on either side. Each mask has a pocket in the middle where you can insert a filter and elastic ear-straps for an easy and secure fit. We've made them in two sizes, so hopefully they can fit you, your family and friends!

Each mask is handmade and unique, so the prints will vary from what's pictured!

Given the obvious nature of these masks, all sales are final!
