We've thought long and hard about whether or not we wanted to introduce face masks to our online boutique, or simply sell them in general; we didn't want to feel as though we were profiting from such a horrible pandemic and utilizing the masks to push some superficial fashion agenda onto people. Then recently TOLERANCE, a fabulous Italian clothing designer that we frequently work with, reached out and told us about their new line of protective face masks that are made in Italy, triple-layered, and physician-approved; this changed our perspective entirely. These masks are high-quality and genuinely helpful, not just some get-rich-quick scheme.
The fact of the matter is that we are in a pandemic, and face masks have been proven to provide protection from COVID-19, so why not introduce good quality ones that are skillfully crafted, don't need to be disposed of after use, can be sold at a reasonable price, and will last for years? There are so many pricey yet low-quality masks on the market that simply play into the fears and worries of the average person, so we are absolutely thrilled to be able to introduce these durable, effective, sustainable, washable, and affordable face masks to you. As a small business, we are suffering due to the severe decline in sales that has resulted because of this pandemic; so while we are hoping to receive some sort of revenue from these masks, we have also committed to donating $1.00 for every mask sold to the United Way Centraide of Canada's COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund. Your money will go towards:
BASIC NEEDS: Ensure people have access to life’s essentials, such as foodand shelter.
HELP FOR SENIORS: Ensure that while vulnerable people are isolated, they are also supported.
CAPACITY FOR COMMUNITY SERVICES: Ensure that community partners can continue to do their vital local workand enable the system navigation services like 211 to support them
These masks are incredibly protective and certified by the Government of Italy. Whether you buy one or three, you are making a great investment in your health.
We can't wait to share these masks with you, but we can't wait until the day when they will no longer be needed even more.
