Bumblebees of Hope

47004580_1585547004331513_r.jpegHi everyone, my name is Sothy and I am a nurse. My friend Joslyn is also a nurse. Together with our community, we bring you the Bumblebees of Hope.  Formerly known as the Face Mask Makers with Love. 

I have been a nurse for over 12 years.  Joslyn is a nurse of 10  years. We feel strongly and are dedicated to helping our community during this pandemic. We understand that as a community we can breathe hope to those that are in need. But we need your help to make it happen.

We are based in Elk Grove and Natomas, CA; essentially the Sacramento region. Our goal is to help healthcare professionals as well as community members in our area to obtain handmade cloth masks, face shields, and possibly N95 shield covers. 

We have access to a Computer Numerical Control machine, CNC that can laser cut our fabric to get to our sewing team faster. It also has the capability to cut plastic for face shields and much much more. Thank you so much Christine Tran of Dadoheads https://dadoheads.com/ in Rancho Cordova, CA. for this amazing donation of your time and machinery.

We have access to multiple 3D printers to help print shared prototypes of N95 covers and face shields.

Thank you Chheavy Puth of Martinzing  Dry Cleaning https://www.martinizing.com/laguna-elk-grove for helping us to maintain the cleanliness of the masks we distribute to the community.

You can find us on facebook at:

Any funds received will be allocated towards supplies and the needs of the team i.e. plastic, foam, adhesive, fabric, elastic, gas money, face shields, masks etc.

We are continuing to develop on a daily basis. Please stay tuned for updates.

**Containment is key. Please shelter in place when ordered. Please practice social distancing. Please practice hand hygiene.**
