Maggie the Mask Maker: COVID-19 Mask Making Tutorials

Maggie The Mask Maker by Alarmclock Design LLC

Millions of Masks are needed, and Americans need your help! We must protect our citizens and our nation's healthcare workers battling on the frontlines. We are so inspired by the community and want to do our part to get involved in the effort against COVID-19. As we navigate this pandemic we want to help Americans everywhere; Healthcare workers, emergency service personnel, doctors, social services and our fellow neighbors through this crisis. We created this poster, inspired by the WWII poster by J. Howard Miller’s “We can do it!”. Miller’s poster was an inspiration to women workers everywhere to join the war effort. In an effort to spread the word about helping our community and fellow Americans please forward and spread the word on how you can help others in this effort to send masks to hospitals and other healthcare facilities. During this time of crisis, we can help each other and ourselves by giving back to our community. AMERICA needs you to help in any way you can! Sew masks, deliver and donate materials, create kits, wash fabrics, make phone calls. Find a group in your local area by searching "Mask Makers" on Facebook.
