Unmasking Kindness

Title (Dublin Core)

Unmasking Kindness

Description (Dublin Core)

Days before Minnesota's official shelter in place, people's homes began to transform into small factories. Turning out masks by the dozens, and sometimes even hundreds, Minnesotans answered the call for the protective headwear. Isolation did not stop people from joining together in common cause. Local businesses gave away materials, and local hospitals created drive-by drop offs for people to donate masks. Once we ran out of fabric, my mother turned to old clothes to meet the demands. Pictured above, I am modeling on of the first masks she made. We donated to family members, friends, neighbors, and also to a local hospital. We also shipped some to my brother's coworkers at the Pueblo, Colorado Health Department. In total, my mom has made around 100 masks, showing that not all heroes wear capes, but they do wear masks. #DePaulHST391
