Hand Crafted Masks
100% of proceeds to for the Food Bank
This mom has made 90 masks and raised $1465 for the food bank! She chose to donate to the food “because my love language is food and this is a challenging time for so many. What started out as an activity to manage my anxiety has turned into something so much more fulfilling, I can’t even describe it but it’s kind of warm and squishy. Your generosity and kind words have filled my heart with so much joy.”
