We are a national collective of volunteers of all genders who have turned our living rooms into “sweatshops” because of the failure of the Federal Government to provide proper PPE to essential workers and vulnerable communities. Our Aunties, Uncles and non-binary volunteers give time and labor to make masks to stop the spread of Covid-19, specifically in the most vulnerable of communities with no access to masks. We believe in a system of community care and having a direct connection to our recipients. We share resources on patterns, fabric and elastic. We pride our origins as a mostly WOC and QTNB* group that celebrates the ability of all our Aunties to rise up and become the real leaders in this crisis.
