This initiative began when I realized the hardships the Deaf community is facing during the pandemic. Face masks create a communication barrier, and make it difficult for those who need to see others' facial expressions and lips. This additional barrier can make those in the Deaf community feel even more isolated and can increase any feelings of sadness or loneliness. The masks we purchase will help eliminate that barrier, but they are costly to make and/or purchase.
The fundraising will continue and we hope to have enough masks before the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. As one of the goals is to donate masks to the Sunshine Cottage School, a school for the Deaf here in San Antonio, TX.
Your support means the world to us, as together we will be able to help make communication be safer and easier for teachers and students. We hope you will be able to share our goal with others in the community to help make this initiative successful.
