“As a country, we felt the blow of how ill-equipped and unprepared we were for such a disaster. As global medical supplies and face masks ran low, there was no way of obtaining more of what was desperately needed. There were not enough manufacturers in the US to meet the demand,” says the website.

The best part, for every mask sold, the company will give one to a health care worker or family in need with the help of organizational partners on the frontlines. Their current goal is to donate 1,000,000 masks by April 13, 2021.

According to Robb Report, “the three-layer masks are cut from polypropylene. Because it’s a non-woven fabric, the material is resistant to fluids and, on paper, is able to filter 95 percent of viruses along with the majority of bacteria. Henry, a self-described origami fanatic, used his love of the Japanese paper-folding art to create a unique shape that didn’t require a metal strip to fit properly over the nose.”

The masks are available in children, teen, and adult sizes in some very colorful varieties.
