Like you, I’m ready to get back to school, back to the theater, and back to hugging my friends. I’m ready for COVID-19 to be behind us so we can go back to living life!
Hi, I’m Andréa and this is my mom, Kathy, and we’re the founders of The Mask Hub.
This initiative sprung from a personal need: my family was trying to buy cloth masks on Amazon, but they were either sold out, not protective enough, or too expensive. I realized that my family was one among the millions of others facing this widespread issue — we all needed masks to help control the spread of COVID, but we couldn’t easily acquire them.
And then I realized that my aunt in Vietnam could produce high-quality masks for a reasonable price in her clothing factory…. but only if we ordered in bulk (>100,000 at a time). Originally, my plan was to buy them, keep a few we needed, and sell the rest on Amazon, donating the proceeds to charities. But then, I thought, why stop there? Why not donate the masks directly to charities, to support the people who need them the most? This is where the Mask Hub story begins.
Today, our initiative is providing high-quality reusable protective cloth masks, produced in my aunt’s factory, to the public. We purchased 1 million masks, and will donate all of them to non-profit and philanthropic organizations to slow the spread of COVID-19. The proceeds from mask donations will be used to support recovery, education, and ultimately ease the human suffering due to the pandemic.
