You're awesome!! You need to know it.
Let's use cloth face coverings to help slow the spread of COVID-19!  The CDC is encouraging it so let's do it!  Whether you're on the way to the grocery, picking up dirt for your yard, or taking a walk with your best friends, wearing a face covering is important.  And if WE ALL DO IT, imagine how we can help slow the spread.  We say protecting yourself while also protecting those around you is pretty darn American.  Let's do this, America!

For every mask you purchase we will also donate a mask to those in need! Your purchase is going to make that happen!  Yours.  Your mask will fund someone else's mask. 

Each mask is sewn by the Shine Bright Stitchers who are do-gooders wanting to use their talents to keep our community healthy and now you can be a do-gooder, too!We have donated 100s of masks to Indianapolis nursing homes, Meals on Wheels, Recycle Force, area hospitals and more!  Your purchase will enable the vulnerable in our community get necessary masks to reduce their risk and ours. 

Your mask should be laundered before wearing!  Wash and dry like normal.  Iron using a cotton setting.  Avoid ironing the elastic. 
Please see the CDC guidelines for wearing a cloth covering here.

We honor Vera Florence Cooper Rubin, an American astronomer who pioneered work on galaxy rotation rates. Rubin spent her life advocating for women in science and was known for her mentorship of aspiring female astronomers. Her data provided some of the first evidence for dark matter, which had been theorized by Fritz Zwicky in the 1930s.
