COVID-19 Protective Face Masks

There is a massive shortage of protective face masks across the US for medical personnel and the general public.  We can produce masks domestically -- right away -- and many people have asked how they can help, so we set up this fund. 

Product Details:
- Reusable, machine washable protective face masks 
- 100% Cotton lining (soft and breathable)
- Made in New Jersey

Use of Funds:
(1) To pay the fabric supplier for the raw materials
(2) To pay the local workers to cut and sew the garments, and other associated manufacturing overhead
(3) Transportation costs

Help Us Help Others:
10% of direct to consumer sales on www.noragardner.com will be donated to the NYC Food Bank, which will provide immediate assistance to recently unemployed New Yorkers due to COVID-19 related layoffs and business closures.

**Please note that we have fully stopped all of our regular garment production in our factories to fill this immediate need.**

DISCLAIMER: That this mask does NOT protect you 100% from getting this virus. The World Health Organization states that the best practices for avoiding this virus are washing your hands and avoiding touching your face. The cotton lining will stop a percentage of germs and it will help you avoid touching your face.  If you are sick, wearing a mask will help stop your germs spreading to other people.  If you are out in public where people may be sick or have a cough, this mask may offer some protection. These masks are not FDA approved and are not approved PPE.

NOTES ON CARE AND USE: Wash mask frequently and do not wear wet. Do not move this mask (or any mask) to another part of your head or body (e.g. your forehead), and then recover your mouth as this may spread germs. Avoid touching the fabric with your hands and instead touch only the edge of the mask and elastic bands.

The garments will be produced in accordance with CDC guidelines and maintaining social distancing.  

All donations greater than $50 will receive a face mask as a thank you.

Please help us prevent the shortfall of face masks and keep our economy moving!
