A WORD FROM THE DESIGNER:
I started producing free masks as a non-profit initiative during the COVID-19 pandemic. And I am still doing that on the ongoing basis. However, I received multiple requests from individuals who expressed interest and feel more comfortable purchasing a mask. Therefore, you now have the option to do so. Both free and for-purchase masks are identical.
Please keep in mind - I am no longer able to cover shipping charges.
I will, however, keep sending free masks with free shipping to all frontline employees and those individuals who donated to "The Frontlines Toronto" (CLICK HERE TO DONATE) And also to those who are in financial need and unable to pay for shipping. If you are in any of these categories, please email email@example.com or send a DM on instagram @cherryburgundyofficial
I also have now received a handful of messages so kindly asking to help offset the costs that I incur while sending free masks.
Around 8 out of 10 masks I make are free.
My expenses include materials, shipping fees and hiring an additional seamstress to help out with sewing.
I am not paying myself and fully donating my time.
I have added a donations option for those inspired and able to assist with the ongoing cost of this non-profit initiative.
If you'd like to donate, make my work more sustainable and show support to those who need it most - you can do it below. I truly am happy to continue doing this work and your donations make it possible.
I sincerely appreciate your contribution.
I will make a list of all the donors and make sure to make it public/give you credit.
(Unless you ask to stay anonymous)
Your kindness, heart-felt messages and support have been truly inspiring to me.
Stay safe. With love!

We regret to inform you that our fabric inventory has unfortunately run out due to a large number of orders. While we are still fulfilling previously placed requests, we have no choice but to temporary pause taking new ones. We are trying to source more fabric at this time and will resume masks distribution as soon as possible.
