To help in the effort to save lives and combat COVID-19, Canadian bridal and fashion designer Rita Vinieris, has made it her team’s mission to help frontline workers by sewing and donating masks.
While they would typically be making final touches to the new collection for Bridal Fashion Week right now, the Rita Vinieris team has sewn and donated over 1000 masks for donation with 10,000 expected in the next couple weeks.
Rita made mask kits to send to team members to sew at home, making this a passion project for the entire brand. She is also accepting in-kind donations of fabric and elastic to help produce more masks. To donate supplies, please contact: email@example.com
Rita has now expanded those efforts, by launching a GoFundMe campaign to purchase 20,000 PPE medical masks to donate direct to health care workers on the frontline. 100% of all donated funds will go directly to the purchasing of fabric and elastic for production of masks, acquiring as many PPE surgical masks as funds allow, and shipping to Ontario hospitals and neighboring hospitals in the USA.
