Bringing SMILES to the VA or Mpls and the Waters of Plymouth Senior Living

Description (Dublin Core)

My sister is an RN for the VA and contacted me in April, when there was a shortage of Masks. She asked if I could bring some smiles to the patients so that is how I got started. I have made or 100 different character masks for the VA and for my Mothers Senior Independent Living Apartments since their lockdown. They couldn't wait for the arrival of the next drop off to see what I had created next. I've had fun wearing them in stores as I shop, bring SMILES to fellow shoppers and FIRST RESPONDERS who too need that SMILE everyday. I also invented a little something that keeps the mask from SUCKING into their mouth when they speak. Every version got better and better as I kept creating. It brought a lot of enjoyment to me.
Photos. I made all the masks and drew and painted all the designs freehand
