I’ll be honest. I’ve struggled with what to put on this blog in the face of current events. I thought about skipping this week. Then, a couple things happened that helped change my mind.
Joann’s is the main one I want to focus on. They are one business among many coming from a place of “how can we help?”
If you don’t know (quite possibly because of being in another country), there is a shortage of non-surgical masks and gowns for medical personnel. Joann’s is just one place that is stepping up to help with that.
On their website, they have an explanation of what they’re doing and how you can help.
I can’t sew except to sew a button on to replace one that has come off. However, I know that many others can.
I suggest that you get together with your nearest Joann’s and help them meet their goal of 100,000,000 masks.
As I am writing this, they have currently donated 18,188,850 masks. That’s a lot, but they have a long way to go. Let’s do what we can to help them meet their goal.
