Hello and welcome to LFFMF Headquarters!
Thank you to everyone who ordered masks, we've sewn and distributed 350 masks in the last month! It started out a bit crazy here in the 'factory' as we try to keep up with demand, which took us a bit by surprise.
We've fine tuned our face masks, thank you to the people that wrote in with suggestions for improvement. The sizing is more forgiving and nose wires are now added to the adult S, M and L. Pay what you want (25% of all purchases will be donated to the organizations below) or take them as a gift and if you're able please make a small donation one of the amazing organizations below or one that you support.
SHIPPING / PICK UP:
- Pick up at our place, snail mail, or express post for $16 in Canada. Let us know when you order, and please add in shipping costs.
Here's some info on the organizations we are supporting:
PANTRY - feeding community - Organized by Lara Rae, Pantry is a community based project to support and uplift my neighbours by providing food and supplies to those dealing with food and shelter insecurity. Privately funded by Lara with assistance from private donations which go 100 percent towards food and kitchen supplies. e-transfer to email@example.com
MAIN STREET PROJECT - Since its formal inception in 1972, the organization has been providing a range of services to Winnipeg's most vulnerable residents, including emergency shelter and nutrition services, drug and alcohol detoxification, health advocacy/support, and counselling and housing support services.
WEST CENTRAL WOMEN'S RESOURCE CENTRE - The WCWRC exists to empower women to help themselves, their families and their community to safer, healthier lifestyles. Our home is the diverse West Central neighbourhood of Winnipeg on Treaty 1 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis Nation.
FACE MASK INFORMATION: CDC (Centres for Disease Control and Prevention) has information on when to wear them, how to put on and take off, etc.
Thanks very much to BANDZOOGLE for sponsoring us, they are giving us a Pro site for free until the end of July so that we keep track of our face mask inventory. BANDZOOGLE ROCKS! We highly recommend their services to anyone wanting a simple and good looking music website, we've been using them for years.
THE PATTERNS WE ARE USING:
Here at LFFMF headquarters we have researched EVERY face mask site that exists and after coming up for air, we have picked the 2 patterns that we like best. Here are the links in case you want to sew your own:)
