After our first donation of mask elastic (see post) and discovering that there was a shortage across North America, we decided to bring in more. A LOT more! We sourced just over a kilometre and donated the ~1100 metres to:
- Protect Frontline Workers (protectfrontlineworkers.ca; website now offline),
- Vancouver Makers (https://www.yvrmers.com/),
- and four other local mask making volunteers.
We did one further small donation in the fall of 2020 but thankfully, by that time, elastic was once again available on Amazon and commercially made masks were on store shelves once more.
