As Minnesota "waits" for mass produced masks to reach their hospitals, we're producing 3,000/week to deliver locally and relief major hot spots and underserved smaller networks in rural areas or isolated areas like Hilo, Hawaii - who have little power in buying masks when they are competing with big hospital networks for the national stockpile.

Our local operation consists of 3 sewing entities. Our main factory is Clothier Design Source , a woman owned apparel design company in the Twin Cities. We have 10 years experience in medical garment design and development. Four weeks ago, Mindy (CEO) started hustling to convert her apparel design house into a fully operational factory to produce masks at scale for the state.
With the money raised here and our online sales (100% proceeds go to masks) we're able to continue batching masks for organizations experiencing shortages or with no protection at all. You can see who we have helped here .
Speciality medical & PPE
We have the materials and capabilities to pivot and support other PPE garments like gowns, shoe covers, etc. when our hospitals ask us to do so. Hospitals request help here
What is the Be Silly Project?
A social project to to raise awareness so we can make as many masks as possible for our hospital heroes. Join the fun on Instagram or Facebook at @BeSillyProject.
We also post updates of where masks were delivered here, so see where your donation went and feel good about contributing from home!
