The Masked Super Heroes

Jack produces his Wednesday guest blog on Wednesday for a change –

Most of you may know that Wendy is the Director of a medical non-profit organization, and in the current emergency situation, she is working from home. In observing her, I’m amazed at how she has turned her job around into coordinating the supply of PPEs to all the folk she is connected to in hospitals and health centers around SW Virginia.

She has crafters making masks and is contacting suppliers around the world for more. From the minute she wakes up until we go to bed she is constantly on the phone handling all this. Lot’s of times she’s batting off the inevitable bureaucratic barriers (many swear words involved). But still she battles on! Getting the supplies to where they’re most needed.

This is a difficult time for everyone, but never more so than for health workers. They are in the front line of this and are taking enormous risks to keep the rest of us safe and treated professionally. But they, perhaps more than anyone, need to be protected.

Wendy has taken on this task and I couldn’t be prouder of her!

    As a nurse in NE Ohio, I thank you Wendy for all you are doing!

    Wendy, I’m making masks for the first responders and necessary workers. I have lots of fabric. We’re ripping up sheets. BUT where can I find 1/4 elastic? Available on Ebay, Amazon, but will not deliver until late May. Any suggestions?

    • Use four ties instead, and you can make those with any ribbon, shoelace, yarn or other non-stretchy fabric. You can also use pony tail holders to make the elastic loops.
